Alright, since I'm not gonna voluntarily tell you who I am. I have some insight on various discussions here about AI Technology and I'll share
The discussion about AI will start to gravitate to selling it as a "new" cortex. Currently there are three understood "parts" of the brain with
different functions. This will be theorizing the beginnings of what will result in another digital layer to the brain. This won't be apparent at the
time, but it's like selling all the gears to a watch, but never telling the buyer what they're building.
Only the benefits will be espoused and leave out questions about the brain we already can't "answer". Answer meaning a "cure". Cure meaning whatever
you want it to mean. I think the foremost of these is how the lower brain can "Trump" the upper forcing survival instincts, which is a system
developed for our survival throughout the history of mankind. PTSD is a mental diagnosis with hard medical imaging evidence proving this function
becomes "broken" and "overactive". There will be implications regarding the election we just had in this regard.
Implementation of hybridization of the human mind and technology will be well underway. It won't just be google glass level publicity, it will likely
feel like a requirement to stay competitive in even normal human business and society. The public will be sold on the idea of regulating emotions as a
"possible" solution using these technologies, as a result of these sweeping changes to privacy and information accessibility. Theoretical Headline:
"New Study: New treatment vastly more effective than biochemical medication for veterans with PTSD" Treatments may no longer be ingested, and augment
the actual memories or reality in real time, instead. Most of the technology will be bought by the public as "entertainment" but will fuel the booming
IT industry, but who is regulating the data?
I think it will be clear at the end of the first term of this presidency that Americans will be forced to make a choice on a lot of issues. Religious,
constitutional, moral, social, economic, and industrial. Choices in technology will be the driving force behind these reforms.
The public will faced with "borg-like" acceptance and written in stone interpretations of things that were, during these years, still questionable, at
least globally. I believe there are alternatives, but they will be largely marginalized. The "ethics" of today should be avoided in these discussions,
but will be persistent.
This is based on current technology trends and theories. The change will be global.
People today will not believe the world of tomorrow, today. I think that same person will find the change not as turbulent as they might imagine,
today. Softer than a coup. No shock and awe.
