Your tech devices want to read your brain. What could go wrong?

Andreas Milano

Ramses Alcaide has spent over a decade thinking about thinking.

As a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan in 2015, he developed a brain-computer interface that would allow people to control software and physical objects with their thoughts.
