ELON MUSK SAYS HUMANS MUST BECOME CYBORGS TO STAY RELEVANT. IS HE RIGHT?
ASU’s Panagiotis Artemiadis says “no.”
Artemiadis has been trying to get more bandwidth using a 128-electrode EEG cap to allow a human to control a swarm of flying robots with their brain. “We can already decode basic concepts like closing a hand or moving an elbow, but we can’t decode more complex behaviors,” he said.
He has created a system that allows for a single person to control the collaborative movement of multiple drones, for example making the flock move closer together so that it can fit through a narrow pass.
“We are building these machines to serve humans,” he said.
