    Kind of a crank website. Then again, this is the WEF we’re talking about; even chuds can see that having your boss read your mind is a bad idea.

      We’re already seeing things moving in that direction right now. There is tons of employee monitoring software. Companies use key loggers, video surveillance, attention tracking, and so on. Then there’s a recent case of a woman being ordered to reimburse former employer for ‘time theft’ based on the monitoring software.

      So, the idea that companies would start forcing people to wear brainwave monitoring helmets to track whether they’re focused on work or not isn’t as far fetched as you seem to think.

        I’m lucky I haven’t beem subjected to that yet. I fear the day when that becomes the norm.

          It will only become the norm is people let this become the norm. There will come a point where people are going to say enough is enough.

        My friend works in one of Russia’s bigger telecom companies. A few years ago they’ve tested a technology that could create “heat maps” of a person’s activity based on the footage from security cameras. By heat map they meant colouring various areas of the workspace, depending on how much time a person spent there (getting “hotter” the more time spent).

          I think some smartphones already integrate it.

              No, I think brain activity can already be monitored by smatphones, since I sometimes experience strange events in the night. While having strange dreams I sometimes wake up and the smartphone blinks some seconds after I wake up. The phone is in plane mode though. So either plane mode is fake and it’s me that’s awaken from some phone radio activity, or the phone is able to detect my brain activity.

    most kinds of tracking will real a thing or two about what a person is thinking. literal brain tracking is the threshold of where people become concerned.
