Explain the potentially disruptive nature of new technologies on society.
As a Computer Scientist, you have observed a multitude of reactions when something new and unique has been introduced to accentuate our capabilities. When Google Glasses were released, many business owners refused to allow patrons to wear these devices in their place of business; all Google Glasses had to be checked at the door before entering. The main controversy of Google Glass was its potential to intrude into everyone’s privacy.
The use of brain-computer interfaces could become as controversial as Google Glass. However, this type of interface might not be as visible and should not threaten anyone’s privacy. Just imagine how cool it would be to have a word processor type whatever you were thinking, or search the web using just your thoughts.
Conduct some research on brain-computer interfaces to get a better idea of the concept and what recent breakthroughs have occurred. Once you feel comfortable with this new technology you need to develop a feasibility study containing a SWOT with at least three examples of Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats along with Analysis and an impact statement that addresses the following:
What, if any, employment complications might arise due to the use of brain-computer interfaces. The various complications that might develop due to society’s resistance to their use. The paradigm shift that the use of brain-computer interfaces will create.
Requirement to pass
A thorough and detailed discussion on the employment complications that might arise due to the use of brain-computer interfaces was developed with examples.
A thorough and detailed discussion on various complications that might develop due to society’s resistance to their use was developed with examples.
A thorough and detailed discussion on the paradigm shift that the use of brain-computer interfaces will create was developed with examples.
Thorough and detailed SWOT Analysis with more than three examples of each category provided.
