Good thread, interesting topic.
It won't bring about peace, but instead super-criminals and soldiers.

I also wonder what all the side effects of this surgery will be, I bet they won't be pretty. I bet a malfunction will be horrific.

Also you spelled your name wrong at the bottom, hahaha!

the tech is still in its infancy. I remember him giving a speech that eventually getting a neural link will be a simple as an injection. I will sign up when this tech has matured.

Or perhaps, you won't have a choice.

Or how about this: You get access to Google, and its infinite knowledgebase, including the best AI on earth. Or it gets into your mind and psyche, essentially controlling each and your every aspect.

Have you considered how this technology would be able to access yourself?

Check this out.



Freewill simply is not all it's cracked up to be.

So i would not worry too much about Google or its knowledge base infinite or otherwise.

Remember the ultra-dilation of Tim Cook's eyes?

How about Zuckerberg's eyes?

Completely abnormal dilation...

Pseudoscience? Seriously? You can't get up early enough for someone who is always awake.

Think you may find the persons referenced and the experimentation done amounts to a hell of a lot more than Pseudoscience BrianFlanders.

These people are peer-reviewed, professionals, and a hell of a lot smarter than you or i, well me anyway. LoL

Fact is neuroscience has proven the processes and actions in our minds are beginning to form before the actual act or thought.

As to being awake, well that has a lot to do with consciousness also.

Interesting times my friend, very Interesting times indeed.

I know you are wrong.

Just like always, huh? Yeah. This ain't my first rodeo. I trust no one when it comes to my rights.

My 1911 says there will be.

If they can make our dreams like some sort of matrix-style, holodeck experience
It would change the world forever. Imagine watching your dreams like a movie?
Nightmares would be amazing to witness in a VR style setup

Oh wow! So many thoughts about this.
I'm looking from a medical side as in Alzheimer's. Wouldn't it be great to alleviate that! It runs deep in my family and is a very sad disease and way to linger until death.. Or Parkinsons.
Also, I would love to record my dreams so I could watch them later. Plus I believe dream research is important.
But.....that little chip would screw us up forever in so many ways.

Putting a programmable wifi-enabled chip in my brain that can transmit my thoughts, emotions and control my motor functions?

What can possibly go wrong with this idea?

Things clearly will go wrong, we'll have a future similar to Ghost in the Shell if everyone starts using these, because complex technology always has exploits. Also I think these devices will provide much less of a benefit than people imagine they will. They seem to have this idea that we'll be able to keep up with machine intelligence by embedding machines into our minds, but really all these devices will do is allow us to control an operating system with our thoughts. All it really does is reduce the time it takes to do a Google search or type a mathematical expression into a calculator.

I can see how it could improve productivity quite a lot but it doesn't fundamentally make you any smarter than you already are, there is no magical solution to increase your true level of intelligence, because that comes from your neural networks. I'm sure I can still be a competitive programmer even if I have to make manual Google searches... it's the same reason I never really use apps like Siri or Cortana. Also I don't think the increased productivity would be worth the potential security implications. The only real use I can see coming from this is VR technology which wires directly into our brain.

Neuralink said it has completed 19 surgeries on animals, and that robots placed the threads accurately 87 percent of the time


thats no where near enough for me to be involved!

87%?

what happens on the other 13% - long term brain damage?

2024 will be a the year of the tech-mech-neuromod jump year. What we see now is just a prep for it.

I will choose to remain analog no matter what.

The rest of the world can pass me and be super geniuses if you want.

Someone has to stay behind. I'm fine with being the stay behind person.

It will be great to view ads 24/7 while at the same time being cured of sense of individuality.
