The advance technological development has led to the revolution on the way people communicating. We are now moving up to the next level of human communication by exploring the neurotechnology, an innovation driven by enabling high-end technologies as a basis of communicating between people and computer. In the past information society, the common practice was to collect information via the network and have it analyzed by humans. Nowadays, however, people, things, and systems are all connected in cyberspace and optimal results obtained by artificial intelligence (AI) exceeding the capabilities of humans are fed back to physical space. This process brings new value to industry and society in ways not possible previously.

In short, emerging neurotechnologies and Web’s evolutionary process have the potential to allow access to at least some components of mental information and has power to modified business orientation as well as society empowerment. While these advances can be greatly beneficial for individuals and society, they can also be misused and create unprecedented threats to the freedom of the mind and to the individuals’ and society’s capacity to freely govern their behavior.
