Many people turn to dating apps to find companionship and love, however, researchers say sexual predators are using dating apps to secure new victims. A new study reveals 14% of rapes committed by an acquaintance occurred as a result of meeting via a dating app. Victims with mental illnesses and other vulnerabilities were the most targeted, and the attacks were significantly more violent.

Brain Computer Interface news involves science using BCI, neural interfaces, brain implant technologies, EEG control of robotics, neurobotics and more.

A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a screen, based on a person thinking about writing the word.
