This is relevant to collective-intelligence because:
* I plan to use OpenEEG to network Human unconscious thoughts together through the internet through music psychology and mouse movements. It will feel a little like telepathy but without the need for paranormal powers.
* Anyone is allowed to build the hardware with standard parts you can get at electronic stores, so its one of the few hardwares that is designed by the collective-intelligence of people, like is normally done in open-source software. The OpenEEG software is also open-source. There are at least 9 softwares for it, and most are open-source GNU GPL or GNU LGPL.
Softwares that can use OpenEEG hardware:
* ABI BCI
OpenEEG hardware has not been medically certified, so anyone who builds and/or uses one does so at their own risk and judgement completely. No claims are made that it is safe. Its experimental.
I wrote on the sourceforge page for OpenEEG:
I plan for a future version of my Audivolv software to optionally connect to OpenEEG mind-reading devices (or any other devices or many devices simultaneously) for a similar purpose as emotiv.com uses a mind-reading device as a video-game controller. http://sourceforge.ne... Audivolv (GNU GPL 2+) is the only Artificial-Intelligence that creates musical- instruments you play with the mouse, learns how you want them to sound, and automatically creates and uses new software to make them sound more that way. Thats what it does now. The goal: "Human moves mouse to control realtime generated music which artificial intelligence (AI) changes to try to control Human's hand on mouse. AI translates music problems to programming problems, organizing Humans unconsciously through internet to build AI". Audivolv will become the first open-source global AI network, using simple UDP packets and letting AI organize and optimize the network and what to use the network for (while obeying each user's privacy options). The purpose of extending Audivolv onto the internet is to increase each Audivolv's intelligence by including the unconscious musical thoughts of millions of people who move their mouse to play the realtime generated intelligent music. Generated AI code and people's unconscious musical thoughts, will be searchable by content, but not by name, because this global AI lambda-based system will be too much like Lisp to search anything by name. A future version of Audivolv can do that using only mouse X and Y positions as the user-interface. If combined with OpenEEG, the "Audivolv Network" would be extremely smarter. Unlike the softwares most people think of when they hear "artificial intelligence", the combination of Audivolv and OpenEEG and a million people would be an experience that most people can not imagine. Audivolv+OpenEEG will use subtle psychology of music and mouse movements to form a collective-intelligence of millions or billions of people, free and open-source. http://en.wikipedia.o...
My goal is to help get the OpenEEG project well-tested, medically certified, and into mass-production on the scale of millions of units, within some number of years (I don't know how many years). My open-source (GNU GPL 2+) artificial intelligence (AI) software will optionally be able to use devices like that.
My secondary goal is to port the OpenEEG software to work on the most common operating-systems. I prefer that it work on at least Linux, Macintosh, and Windows. Also, I would like it to connect to Java, but thats not hard for me to do after you make it work on other operating-systems, if you would.
I joined the main OpenEEG mailing list and announced my plans, including the fact that they are early plans and I have no money right now. I need to form a strategy, but I am confident that the collective of everyone who wants this to happen (instead of proprietary EEG devices blocking access to open-source) can get it improved, tested, medically certified, and mass-produced.
Unless other EEG devices start allowing connections to open-source softwares, I'll probably (I'm not committing to anything here) have to donate thousands of my own dollars to OpenEEG to start competing with those businesses that make competing products (like http://emotiv.com).... We can run the world on open-source. Lets prove it.

At first look I'm not sure I'd call this CI, but I'm open to hearing more. What exactly will it do?
For me, CI is very much about accomplishing something, deciding something, solving something. I'm very interested in hearing details.
On a side note, I'm also interested in the OpenEED project.
