Within the context of the cyborg and the potential military application thereof, consider these items:
"A brain–computer interface (BCI) . . . is a direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device."
In the nutshell, a human connected to a computer. Advantage gained!
Thanks to the Russian Internet web site Sputnik!
1. "New Elon Musk Venture Aims to Merge the Human Brain With Artificial Intelligence"
"Noted artificial intelligence skeptic Elon Musk, co-founder of driverless car pioneer Tesla Motors and space exploration firm SpaceX, is attempting to combat the rise of AI [artificial intelligence] with the launch of a new venture, Neuralink. The business aims to facilitate the interface of human brains and computers."
Elon previously having voiced fears of AI and the danger as might be posed to mankind! THE RISE OF THE MACHINES!
“'The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year time frame . . . 10 years at most.'” - - Elon Musk.
2. "Never Mind Area 51, Here's Building 8: Facebook Developing Mind-Reading TechCC0"
"Facebook has revealed it's working on an interface which will allow users to control computers via their brains.'
"Headed by Regina Dugan, formerly of shadowy US military technology division DARPA and Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP), its first goal is the development of a non-invasive system to allow people to type using thought."
Mind-reading technology not strictly BCI? NO direct connection between the computer and the human brain. Perhaps BCI needs to be redefined?
These projects and research without question still at the most basic and elementary stage of development. You gotta start somewhere!
