If you wanted any reassurance that yes, you are living in the future, here’s a little titbit – banks are actually reading people’s minds in job interviews using brain scanners.
Privacy advocates have long been alarmed by the potential uses of such technologies – suggesting that brain scans could be used to weed out candidates, for instance, who were alcoholics.
But Royal Bank of Scotland Group isn’t using the technology in a particularly sinister way (or at least, not yet), according to futurist Matthew Griffin.
At student fairs in the UK, RBS Group recruiters have been wiring up potential candidates, showing them images – and suggesting areas of the group they could work in.
