Do You Really Want to Live in a World Where Computers Read Your Mind?

Not that we really have a say in the matter either way, but nothing about the question conjures up warm, gushy feelings. The government, via its Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is spending $60 million on a direct brain-computer interface via neural implant that would allow computers to decode the human brain.

The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical language used by neurons in the brain and the ones and zeros that constitute the language of information technology. The goal is to achieve this communications link in a biocompatible device no larger than one cubic centimeter in size…

Sounds like a super fun addition to the coming smart grid.


And when they finally decide to announce these technologies to the public, the military, government, and media always like to propagandize them with the idea that it will be used for only for good, as in to help deaf and blind people, but come on. Since when is DARPA the benevolent giver of $60 million in technology just to help people with physical disabilities?

What if technology like this progressed to the point where your thoughts could be read whether you liked it or not?

The idea isn’t science fiction. It isn’t even far-fetched. A panel at the elite Davos forum recently met to discuss the issue of neuro technologies being used decode our brains whether we like it or not. UC Berkeley professor Dr. Jack Gallant said, “Personally, I think it’s just a matter of time before there will be a portable brain decoding technology that decodes language just as fast as you can type with your thumbs on a cell phone and everyone will wear them because people have shown that they’re quite willing to give up privacy for convenience, and then I think that brings up a lot of really interesting and scary ethical and privacy issues.”

Gee… you think?

Meanwhile Microsoft is in the process of acquiring language prediction technology maker Swiftkey, home of the first neural network for smart phones, for over $200 million.” Just what the world needs, clairvoyant smart phones,” Fortune reported. Facebook is already asking people how their day is going when they log in…

Not sure if you can visualize where all this tech is headed (no pun intended), but Google chairman Eric Schmidt said that soon the Internet will be “part of your presence all the time” as we get swept up into the ever-connected, omnipresent Internet of Things that the NSA keeps drooling over. Just imagine if brain decoding tech is made a standard part of that grid.

No wonder Bilderberg asked if privacy still exists.

The question was rhetorical. And everyone is stumbling around with their faces in their smart phones, seemingly unaware of the rabbit hole their about to fall into.

    A world with a few million people who have robots do everything for them is considered a step in the right direction by many people. Unfortunately these people are some of the richest people on the planet.

    The younger generations who were born into the computer age accept this stuff uncritically. I remember the age before cell phones. Actually in the US when you walked up to a public phone someone would have cut the cord for a joke, or they didn’t work for some reason. Cell phones are handy but then staring at a smart phone every minute of the day is another matter.

    I like to get a song in my head and carry it with me without aid of constant gadgets to maintain my imagination. That’s what I did as a kid riding my bike or on the swing set, and still do many years later, and it is good for the brain to memorize lyrics. Also, try to memorize phrases in a foreign language, it’s is fun and makes you popular if you can say “hello beautiful” in Italian. Ciao bello!

    I was at a meeting recently and the program they were promoting was software to stop students from plagiarism. I remarked to a colleague, why don’t they just implant a chip into the student’s brains to prevent improper behavior? He agreed and noted that using technology to block cheating with computers deprives the students to ability to develop their own ethics.

  • There are several sub-routines running that tell me I’m quite sure that I don’t want to be living in this Zombie Apocalypse. However, here we are. I suspect strongly that we all signed up for this gig, and that the opportunities to learn and grow from it are something we value highly, despite the “interesting times.” We need to accept the situation exactly as it is, and find the presence to do what is called for. Pay attention, breathe, don’t harbor ill-will. In fact, try to find the grace to pray (however that works for you) for the seriously demented “elites.” However much they know about our external lives, or even our “thoughts” as revealed by the electromagnetic activity in our brains, they can never know our hearts. Or, maybe some of them will start to, and thereby come to know their own.

      I wont hold my breath that the elite blinded by their own greed and driven by perverted desires will stop manipulating the masses when they learn more about how we are made.
