Among the futuristic approaches to brain augmentation, brain-nets connect several brains into a network that enables information exchange between individual subjects. Brain-nets have emerged from bidirectional brain-computer interfaces (BCI), the systems that extract information from brain activity and deliver information to the brain using neurostimulation. Although brain-nets are currently at a very initial stage of their development, they hold promise to evolve into a range of clinical applications and consumer technologies that augment our ability to communicate and collaborate using BCI methods. In addition to these advancements in the BCI field, we are currently witnessing the rise of telemedicine, the clinical approach that allows doctors to remotely connect to patients and deliver care. Telemedicine, enhanced with artificial intelligence and other digital methods, is expected to revolutionize treatment of many diseases, including such neurological condition as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We foresee that at some point, brain-nets and telemedicine will merge to give rise to new, effective neurotechnologies.
