Just by chance in today's slashdot:
"Researchers at Microsoft have invented a system for tagging images by
reading brain scans from an electroencephalograph (EEG). Tagging images is 
an important task because many images on the web are unlabeled and have no 
semantic information. This new method allows an appropriate tag to be 
generated by an AI algorithm interpreting the EEG scan of a person's brain 
while they view an image. The person need only view the image for as little 
as 500 ms. Other current methods for generating tags include flat out paying 
people to do it manually, putting the task on Amazon Mechanical Turk, or 
using Google Image Labeler."
