Artificial reality research promises a future where machines are intelligent and far superior to the human brain, not only in calculation speed, but ease of access to data and analysis, All from what is known as deep learning. This is where machines learn from past choices and refine themselves to improve their own programming.
Memories can go both ways
Can humans every compete with ever evolving technology that has the focus of billions of dollars of investment and the best human brains on the planet. Maybe what we need to consider is leveling the playing field for the human race. What if the computer remained a tool of the human brain and not competition to it!
I am talking about linking the human mind to a computer with a special interface. This interface at some point will become seamless and the power of the internet and supercomputer calculations as well as unlimited data retrieval become just another thought process!
Integrating computers with the human brain
Brain-computer interface technology will allow us to possible push computers back to where they belong. as tools for humans to improve humanity. But of course for every upside there is a potential downside. Once connected and interconnected to all of humanity ( or just the 1%?), what is to stop someone or government from trying to take control of our very thoughts? Consider the impact of Russian advertising and fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter during the run-up to the 2016 presidential elections. How could this play out in a brain-computer connected society? Food for thought right?
Instead of trying to make machines humans make machines connect to humans
Check out this very real Ted-Talk on the subject.
Brain Computer interface technology opens up a world of possibilities. We are on the cusp of this technology that is so powerful and has the potential to so radically transform our lives and existence! After starting three venture-funded startups in Silicon Valley, Steven Hoffman, known as Capital Hoff, launched Founders Space with the mission to educate and accelerate entrepreneurs and intrapreneur.
Founder Space has become one of the top startup accelerators in the world with over 50 partners in 22 countries.
With such research ongoing and considering the funding and research pointed at artificial intelligence does it not sound like we are actually entering into a race of sorts? a cyber-race to dominate the information age?
