Facebook has assembled a team of 60 people, including machine learning and neural prosthetics experts, to enable such a system. Facebook is currently hiring a brain-computer interface engineer and a neural imaging engineer. Its goal? To create a system capable of typing one hundred words per minute – five times faster than you can type on a smartphone – straight from your brain.

Facebook plans to develop non-invasive sensors that can measure brain activity hundreds of times per second at high resolution to decode brain signals associated with language in real time. 

The company is looking at using optical imaging – using lasers to capture changes in the properties of neurons as they fire – to glean words straight from our brain before we say them. If these signals can be read, they can be transmitted silently to other people.

In the here-and-now, Facebook is also working on improving the viewing experience of 360 video by developing algorithms that predict where a user will look next, allowing for those areas of the video to be rendered first. (Quality can be a challenge for 360 video because the medium is such a data hog.)

The message is clear: Facebook wants to be first in on futuristic, immersive technology. And it definitely intends to stay ahead of Snapchat.
