Intel Wants Brain Implants in Its Customers' Heads by 2020

If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, don't tell Intel researchers.

Intel's Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020.

The scientists anticipate that consumers will adapt quickly to the idea, and indeed crave the freedom of not requiring a keyboard, mouse, or remote control for surfing the Web or changing channels. They also predict that people will tire of multi-touch devices such as our precious iPhones, Android smart phones and even Microsoft's wacky Surface Table.

Turning brain waves into real-world tech action still requires some heavy decoding of brain activity. The Intel team has already made use of fMRI brain scans to match brain patterns with similar thoughts across many test subjects.

Plenty of other researchers have also tinkered in this area. Toyota recently demoed a wheelchair controlled with brainwaves, and University of Utah researchers have created a wireless brain transmitter that allows monkeys to control robotic arms.

There are still more implications to creating a seamless brain interface, besides having more cyborgs running around.

If scientists can translate brain waves into specific actions, there's no reason they could not create a virtual world with a full spectrum of activity tied to those brain waves.

That's right -- we're seeing Matrix creep.

The Internet Brain Implant: Why We Should Say No

This Fall pollsters Zogby International released the results of a survey that asked nearly 10,000 US adults the following question. "How likely would you be to implant a device into your brain that enabled you to use your mind to access the internet if it could be done safely?" 11% of respondents said they were very or somewhat likely to do so...

I've talked to a lot of people in the internet industry about this survey since then and have found an even higher percentage of people who say they are interested in a web enabled brain implant. Let's discuss this sooner rather than later, shall we?

* "Privacy is an illusion" is today still hyperbole

It's common for web-boosters today to assure us that "privacy is an illusion" because you can't do anything online any more that isn't discoverable by search, etc.

This is pure hyperbole. Privacy is one of the biggest drivers of some of the hottest social networks online, including to some degree Facebook.

Fortunately, our thoughts remain our own. There is no guarantee of this once the hardware crosses a membrane, however. It's one thing to share our thoughts via collaboration tools and online self expression - but that needs to be done one thought at a time, in circumstances of our own choosing. Losing whatever degree of control over our own minds that we do have isn't something I feel the need to critique explicitly.

Kids growing up will have little to know aversion to this. Watching how my nieces and nephews have cell phones with them 24/7 and have never known life without a computer around.

It's really the next logical step. People already walk around with bluetooth dongles glued to their ear. If the implant is a simple pain free procedure and many accept it, soon it will be as ubiquitous as the cell phone is now.

MANY.

Brain implants, often referred to as neural implants, are technological devices that connect directly to a biological subject's brain - usually placed on the surface of the brain, or attached to the brain's cortex.

A common purpose of modern brain implants and the focus of much current research is establishing a biomedical prosthesis circumventing areas in the brain, which became dysfunctional after a stroke or other head injuries.

This includes sensory substitution, e.g. in vision. Brain implants involve creating interfaces between neural systems and computer chips, popularly called brain-machine interfaces.

Back in the 1980's when they started tagging pets with electronic chips I already foresee this development.

Things always start so innocently.

Back then, the "Pet Implant" was to "help the pet owners identify their pets". So many of them pet owners were like elated, woo hoo, something that will help re-unite me and my pet.

But they forgot one thing - what started with pets may end up in us.

And now Intel is giving strong hints on Brain Implant.

It's much much more than mere tagging, and yes, there are people, totally healthy people, who would agree to have their skull cracked and something inserted into their brains.

Totally creepy !
