Prospects for Thought Communication
Kevin Warwick and Daniela Cerqui Department of Cybernetics, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, RG6 6AY, UK

In this paper we take a look at the realistic future possibility of thought communication. Technical details are presented on experimentation carried out thus far using implant technology and the route ahead involving brain-computer interfaces is described. Of importance in the paper is however the ethical issues raised by such a novel technological development. Discussion is centred on how this relates to previous technological innovations and their early acceptance, e.g. the telephone.

1. Introduction
Technology is now becoming available which is opening up the realistic

Yet all of these can seriously influence not only the immediate reaction to a scientific announcement but also its eventual take up and long term usage. The particular new technology we consider here is the novel area of direct brain to brain communication between individuals. This potentially could change our human concepts of language, individual emotions and even education. Thus far a telegraphic form of communication has been successfully achieved between the nervous systems of two

humans through neural signalling via implants in the nervous system. The next step, a repeat of the experiment from brain to brain appears to be straightforward enough. But, if successful, which most likely it will be, it will push humanity forward in a way that is perhaps most similar to the era when the first telephone conversations were held. Over 45 years after the invention of the electric telegraph, on March 10th 1876 Alec Bell uttered the words “Mr. Watson – Come here – I want to see you” into a mouthpiece. At the far end of the corridor, via a brass pipe arrangement, Bell’s technician Watson heard and understood enough of the words to respond appropriately [Field, 1878; Mackay, 1997]. There followed patent arguments, counter claims and denounciations
