Inside the mind of a master procrastinator

I relate to this too much and I hate it about myself.

When technology can read minds, how will we protect our privacy?


A very serious concern that will need to get worked out before the next-gen BCI revolution takes off. People are not thinking about it enough. As Balaji Srinivasan says:

https://mobile.twitt...945036723617792

Brain-computer interfaces are my candidate for most underhyped technology relative to progress. They are far ahead of general public perception. People know that drones or self-driving cars are happening, but don’t realize how far BCI has gotten.


China, incidentally, requires some of its civil servants to wear EEG caps at all times:

And they have recently been experimenting with improving student performance:

I expect once next-gen BCIs to become available, that very large numbers of workers and students will be required to be scanned at all times.

It will be comparable to being accessible by phone all the time , for same workers.

 

Many people use their phone at work , its a tool one have to have (aside from its personal uses).

 

Its an extension of the smartphone (augmented reality is optional for most people uses , but BC like smartphone , isn't).

 

So the privacy issue is more of the same privacy issue we have today.

 

Most people are not going to care anymore then they do will today privacy issues.

Aside from the eventual nightmare scenario of the govt. having real-time access to your thoughts that this represents, with smaller more portable and more accurate BCI tech this willingness to make lots of people wear them will also allow china to gather enormous amounts of brain data for people doing literally every activity they're interested in. 

 

China would have a big advantage in this when compared to places like the USA where the first reliable "mind reading tech" could trigger huge backlash/protests/calls to ban.

I dislike that nobody talks about the real dangers of bci. anything that interfaces with the brain changes the brain. this is essentially adding another ear or eye that sends and recieves data. that data can contain sensory input packets that mess with the brains function. from the simplest being like speech jammer, to false sensory input, to altering memories to induced psychosis and 'zombies'. And all that's required to make any of these happen is for me to be able to hack your 'router' (whatever 'doorway' is used to connect your brain to any computer).

Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.
