The NextSense’s biosensing earbuds from Google’s Alphabet Moonshot factory, is one of the new technological advancement of the tech giant that seeks to get into users ears, while analyzing the neural frequencies of the brain to collect data as it uncovers the enigma surrounding the brain’s grey matter.
The biosensing earbuds which performs, electroencephalograms (EEGs), can be readily worn at night or in dark places and on an as-needed basis during the day to detect and understand seizures more quickly.
Operating earbuds in a way to capture EEGs as it detects electrical activity of the brain also assess brain activity while detecting anomalies therein, an offshoot of Alphabet’s move in collection of data to inject them into our dreams.
As it effectively detects electrical activity, the NextSense earbuds apart from helping people suffering from seizures can also evaluate sleep quality, predict abnormal activity in the brain, in the process preventing of deadly damage of the brain. It is on the aegis of this that the data collection ability comes in handy, even with the individual cases differing, as it eliminates the believe that are cases are to be treated the same way.
The brain assessment feature of the device helps in the collection of electrical impulses that would be used to
The add-on of the brain assessment feature will help in collecting electrical impulses, which in return, would be used to augment the research and development (R&D) around sleep and neurological disorders.
The spinoff earbuds by Google is fashioned in a way as to examine and study each condition, while suggesting the best way to forecast similar instances that could lead to seizures.
The NextSense technology is gearing up to become one of those ground-breaking points in the history of technology that could make brain analysis more reliable and efficient with the facilitation of the EGG capture, with the Google’s division averring that the earphones has the leverage to shift the dynamics and the procedure for patients suffering from seizures and other related illnesses.
There scepticism on the project though and one of them is the report by Wired that the hidden motive of Google on this important invention is to spy on users brain signals, a claim instantly refuted by Allan Levey, the head of Emory University Brain Health Centre, told Wired that:
“We know about our blood pressure, cholesterol, and respiratory system. We don’t assess that systematically.”
A testing by Emory University shows the unconditional efficiency of the earbuds in capturing the EGG signals of seizures in people, affirming the ability of the innovation to analyse and collect neural data.
In summary, NexSense with its biosensing earbuds is offering to the populace a new approach in concreting EEG data, effectively enhancing the quality of life for epileptic individuals, as the wearable device used in detecting seizures mainly uses biometric data from activity tracking sensors embedded into smartwatches to warn of potential epileptical episodes.
