Encode, based in the year 2020, is tackling the problem of miscommunication in multicultural workplaces. Encode is a headset and computer software offering a new way of communicating ideas through visual language instead of verbal language. Capitalising on the great developments in the field of neuroscience and based on research carried out by several universities; in the near future it will be possible to reconstruct clear images of thoughts (from brain activity) and convert these images into a computer programming language. These ideas can be then sorted out by the user visually through computers. In order to support the problem statement, I carried out a questionnaire surveying 110 participants from 35 different countries speaking 23 different languages. The majority pointed out that verbal language and emails are no longer efficient.
