Computers get help from human brain

Imagine it is the other way around: Instead of using the brain-computer-interface (BCI) to control gadgets, you or better your brain help the computer perform tasks it struggles with, such as recognize and classify images. Electrical signals within the brain fire before a person even realizes he has recognized an image as odd or unusual. Using this fact,  the researchers used a BCI to sort through satellite images for surface-to-air missiles faster than any machine or human analyst could manage alone (via technologyreview.com)
