"Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it."
- Robert Heinlein

Artificial Telepathy  
  Using technology to determine thoughts, and then translate it to speech that could be shared electronically.  

This is the earliest reference I know about to the idea of technology modulated telepathy, in a clear description.

. . . captain . . . said the starship’s Organic Computer, its “voice” sounding within his mind, . . . star drive will be cut in exactly five minutes in accordance with your instructions . . .

. . . very good . . . Absolom Bracer replied, the shifting electromagnetic fields of his brain being detected by sensors, then amplified, then used to modulate a radio carrier transmitted by a tiny unit within the artificial cavity of his prosthetic skull, ultimately received by a similar unit that was a part of the make-up of the thing that was Roger, the Organic Computer. CEMEARS, it was called — Cerebral Electromagnetic Emission Amplification and Relay System — call it artificial telepathy, if you like.

Compare to the communications implant in Oath of Fealty (1981) by Pournelle and Niven.

The only caveat is that the brain of the person is contained now in an artificial skull that enhances the possibility of artificial telepathy.
