Explaining the technology, Dr Robert Shin, an assistant professor of neurology and ophthalmology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said: “There is a level where the brain can identify things before it ever makes it to the conscious level. Your brain says, ‘it may be something’, but it might not realise that it is something that should rise to the conscious level.” Another defence contractor, Honeywell, has been working on a similar technology known as “augmented cognition” to help intelligence analysts to operate more effectively. Based on the same principle as the binoculars, it has been shown to make analysts work up to seven times faster. It can also detect when they are getting tired. In other tests, soldiers have been kitted out with headsets that detect “brain overload”, allowing commanders to know if they can process new information under the extreme pressures of the battlefield. Until recently such technology was beyond the reach of video games companies. But simplified thought-control systems are now emerging from the likes of Emotiv, and Moore's Law―which dictates that technology improves as prices fall―means that they will become cheaper. Gamers will not be the only ones to benefit. Police forces and other law-enforcement agencies have shown an interest in using thought-reading technology to replace lie-detector tests. Similarly, medical researcher believe that the technology could be used by patients to control the next generation of prosthetic limbs, or to give stroke victims new ways to communicate. Emotiv says it is encouraging such applications by giving third-party programmers access to its software development tools. よろしくお願いします。

テクノロジーを説明して、メリーランド医科大学・神経学・眼科学・助教授、ロバート・シン博士は、以下のように言いました: 「脳が意識の段階にたどり着く前に、脳がものを特定することができる段階があります。あなたの脳は言うのです、『それは、何かかもしれない』、しかし、それは意識の段階まで上がるべき何かであると認識しないかもしれないと。」 もう一つの防衛産業の、ハネウエル社は、情報分析者がより効果的に作業するのを助ける「増大された認識」として知られている類似技術に、取り組んできました。 双眼鏡と同じ原理に基づいて、分析者を最高7倍まで速く働かせることが示されました。 それは、いつ彼らが疲れてくるかも検出することができます。 他のテストでは、「脳の過負荷」を検出するヘッドセットを、兵士は装備しました。そして、これによって、指揮官は、兵士が戦場の極度のプレッシャーの下で新情報を処理することができるかどうかわかる様になりました。 最近まで、そのようなテクノロジーは、テレビゲーム会社の手が届かないところにありました。 しかし、簡略化された思考による制御システムは、現在、Emotivの同業者から出てきています、そして、テクノロジーが向上するにつれて、価格が落下する―と言うムーアの法則は、それらがより安くなることを意味してします。 ☆ 余談ですが、世紀が変わる頃(2000年ごろ)に、NHK特集の「世紀を越えて」とかいうシリーズで、湾岸戦争で、米兵が使用した、ハイテク兵器が紹介されていました。 歩兵のゴーグルの様な機器には、眼の隅にパソコン画面が映し出されたように見える仕組みがあって、ベルトあたりのスイッチを操作すると、画面が色々変わるようでした。 見知らぬ他国の砂漠の中の戦いですから、土地勘が米兵にはないのですが、そのゴーグルの画面に衛星からの通信で、兵士の現在位置が逐次表示されるようでした。(カーナビと同じ仕組みです)しかも、自軍の作戦行動も確認できるようになっていて、素早く、新しい作戦に合流できるようになっていました。 また、歩兵は、生身の人間ですから、融通がきく代わりに、戦車などにはひとたまりもありませんが、目の前の敵の戦車が邪魔で、作戦行動に支障がある時は、そのゴーグルと連動した通信回線を使って、後方の自軍からミサイル攻撃させることも可能になっていました。 イラクの兵士は、米軍の攻撃ヘリの音さえ聞こえないほどの距離から(米軍は、赤外線暗視装置でイラク兵を認識していますから)ミサイル攻撃を受けて死んでいったそうです。 この米軍のハイテク技術によって、湾岸戦争は、とりあえず決着がついた訳ですが、指揮をした、将軍の回想で、「イラク兵にも家族はいたはずだ。勝っていても気分の悪くなる戦いだった、いずれ私は、神の前で審判を受けることになるだろう」と言う様な事を言っていました。 第2次世界大戦の日本軍にこの様な立派な将軍(あるいは、軍首脳)は少なかったように思いました。

    Gamers will not be the only ones to benefit. Police forces and other law-enforcement agencies have shown an interest in using thought-reading technology to replace lie-detector tests.

Emotiv says it is encouraging such applications by giving third-party programmers access to its software development tools. All of which represents a new era for video games, according to Mr Iwata. Once regarded as the enemy of society for encouraging violence, games will continue to become more mainstream, competing more fiercely with Hollywood film studios and other traditional forms of entertainment for consumers' time and attention. “With the launch of Wii we began to expand the definition of the video game. Stroking puppies, training your brain, cooking, even measuring your body weight―all of this we've included in the category of video games.” Most analysts agree that Wii's success has changed the industry: a year after its launch in November 2006, it had become a phenomenon of pop culture, largely because of Mr Iwata's strategy of trying to win non-gamers as customers. よろしくお願いします。

    As scientists slowly but surely unlock the mysteries of the brain, they are helping us find solutions for many of our most serious behavioral and social problems. Here are a few recent examples of neuroscience in action. It happens to all of us. As we perform a monotonous task, our brains seem to slow down and we become increasingly prone to making mistakes. Well, it turns out that such tasks actually do numb the brain and make it easier for us to slip up. A recent Norwegian brain-imaging study has found that while we are doing dull, repetitive chores, blood flows into the part of the brain that is more active during states of rest, including sleep. The researchers also found that this usually happens about 30 seconds before we make a mistake. This raises the possibility that workers could somehow be alerted before they make a mistake, thereby improving workplace performance and safety. Another interesting brain-scan study using MRI technology was conducted at Baylor University in Texas. The results show that a baby`s smile actually activates the part of a mother`s brain associated with emotional reward and well-being.

    Each ten years, the government conducts a national census, which is authorized by the Constitution. Most of us do not object to answering the questions that the census poses, but what if you should decide to refuse to answer the questions? Could you do so on the basis that they represent an invasion of your privacy? This has been answered by the courts, which hold that it is a proper government function and a necessary one to gather reliable statistics that have a bearing on governmental functions, and that intelligent legislation can only be formulated if the government has the facts. It is probable that people answer the census questions because they believe their answers will be kept confidential and that the information will not be used to hurt them. Census answers cannot be utilized by parties in a lawsuit and used without the consent of the party giving the answers. However, general statistics can be used, and the statistics gathered in the census have been used, for the good of all.

    It is hard to imagine how customers who rush after trends, or the stores that serve them, will respond to the report’s suggestions: that people lease clothes and return them at the end of a month or a season, so the garments can be lent again to someone else — like library books — and that they buy more expensive and durable clothing that can be worn for years. Perhups surprisingly , the report highlights the benefits of synthetic fabrics they require less hot water to wash and less ironing. It suggests that consumers air-dry clothes and throw away their tumble dryers, which require huge amounts of energy.

    It is refreshing to return to the often-echoed remark, that it could not have been the object of a Divine revelation to instruct mankind in physical science, man having had faculties bestowed upon him to enable him to acquire this knowledge by himself. This is in fact pretty generally admitted; but in the application of the doctrine, writers play at fast and loose with it according to circumstances. Thus an inspired writer may be permitted to allude to the phenomena of nature according to the vulgar view of such things, without impeachment of his better knowledge; but if he speaks of the same phenomena assertively, we are bound to suppose that things are as he represents them, however much our knowledge of nature may be disposed to recalcitrate. But if we find a difficulty in admitting that such misrepresentations can find a place in revelation, the difficulty lies in our having previously assumed what a Divine revelation ought to be. If God made use of imperfectly informed men to lay the foundations of that higher knowledge for which the human race was destined, is it wonderful that they should have committed themselves to assertions not in accordance with facts, although they may have believed them to be true? On what grounds has the popular notion of Divine revelation been built up? Is it not plain that the plan of Providence for the education of man is a progressive one, and as imperfect men have been used as the agents for teaching mankind, is it not to be expected that their teachings should be partial and, to some extent, erroneous? Admitted, as it is, that physical science is not what the Hebrew writers, for the most part, profess to convey, at any rate, that it is not on account of the communication of such knowledge that we attach any value to their writings, why should we hesitate to recognise their fallibility on this head?

    海外の友人が英語について教えてくれているのですが、何と書いてくれているのでしょう? **I think this is what you meant by "sense." If someone says you have good taste, they're saying that they admire your ability to appreciate things. It probably means that either both of you like the same thing. If I said it to someone who I did not agree with it would be strange because then I am implying that I have bad taste haha. You can be more specific, like I could say "She has good taste in shoes," which means that I think (whoever she is) has a really good idea of what a good shoe is. "Sense" can be used to express a similar idea though. If I say you have a nice sense of style, it means that I probably think your clothes are cool or the way you decorated your room is cool etc. It's most typically used with "sense of style/fashion" though I think I could probably say something like "You have a nice sense of what it takes to bake a good cake," but it's much easier to say "you know how to bake a good cake." If someone actually does say "someone has a good sense of what it takes to bake a good cake," they're probably trying to communicate that this person is so good at baking cakes that they naturally know what makes it better... It's like how we have a "sense of smell" or a "sense of hearing." That person is so good at baking cakes that it's like they have a "sense of cake."

    The team’s next step is to train their computer decoder to recognize consonants so that patients can from whole words, and even sentences. They also hope that with developments in technology, they can implant more electrodes in their next patient to transmit a more detailed signal. また、1つ目の文のso that patients can ~のcanのかかる動詞はなんなんですか?
