Brain-Computer Interfaces: The Next Frontier for Human-Computer Interaction?

Whilst the full implications of these advancements are being debated, policies to guide the use of such are yet to be crafted – either because as is often the case innovation leapfrogs policy and governance or because the general implications of these advancements are yet to be fully understood or appreciated, one wonders if these advancements wouldn’t lead to further divide amongst the world’s population, similar to the digital divide occasioned by the evolution of digital.
