Melding Mind and Machine: How Close Are We?   NEUROSCIENCE NEWS  OCTOBER 8, 2017 Summary: Researchers investigate advances in BCI and consider the implications of linking our brains up to technology.    —  Source: The Conversation. Just as ancient Greeks fantasized about soaring flight, today’s imaginations dream of melding minds and machines as a remedy to the pesky problem of human mortality. Can the mind connect directly with artificial intelligence, robots and other minds through brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies to transcend our human limitations? Over the last 50 years, researchers at university labs and companies around the world have made impressive progress toward achieving such a vision. Recently, successful entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk (Neuralink) and Bryan Johnson (Kernel) have announced new startups that seek to enhance human capabilities through brain-computer interfacing. How close are we really to successfully connecting our brains to our technologies? And what might the implications be […]
