1 France Attack Leads To Increased Security Ahead of Weekend Election

Security has been tightened across France, after a suspected terrorist attack killed a police officer ahead of the country's presidential election on Sunday.

A gunman shot and killed a policeman and wounded two other officers in the attack Thursday night in Paris.

Officials say the gunman opened fire with an automatic weapon on a police vehicle on the city's famous Champs-Elysees. The gunman then fled and was killed by police in a gun battle that injured the two officers. A German tourist was also injured.

Officials told the Associated Press the gunman was detained in February for threatening police, but was let go.

He was also reportedly convicted in the past of attempted murder in the shootings of two police officers.

2. Facebook's Plan to Send Thoughts from Brain to Computer

Facebook is developing a technology that it says will be able to transfer thoughts directly from the brain to a computer.

It announced the plans this week at a gathering of the social network's developers in San Jose, California.

Speech-to-text technology has made great progress in recent years. Now scientists are looking to expand on this to develop a system for thoughts-to-text.

Facebook's vice president of engineering Regina Dugan introduced the technology by asking the question, "So what if you could type directly from your brain?"

Dugan said the aim of the project is to turn people's thoughts into text in order to communicate on a computer or personal device.

The company's goal is for users to be able to type at least 100 words per minute based on signals sent from their brains.

Musk is the chief of electric carmaker Tesla and aerospace company SpaceX. He says his system would use implants to pick up brain signals that would go to computers and electronic devices.

Musk has spoken about his fears that robots using artificial intelligence (AI) could get too much power over people and possibly threaten humanity. He said one way to prevent this would be to add another AI element to the human brain
