A Canadian researcher called Melanie Segado explained to us the extent to which your brain activity could be used for malicious purposes, to find out, for example, what you’re thinking or to guess your PIN. Melanie, who is finishing her doctorate in neuroscience in Montreal and is co-founder of the NeurotechX community, differentiated the techniques that are used for measuring brain activity, which allows for the interpretation of the signals that emitted due to stimuli. She and other researchers in the field are trying to determine the capabilities and limitations of this technology in the context of security.
