Mind-bending read on a future challenge topic: “What Can We Share on a Mind-Melding Social Network?” (Sam Brinson)

I really loved this article which takes a deep-dive into the topic of brain-machine-interfaces and use-cases that could revolve around accessing the human brain from a machine/technology perspective in the future. What are the challenges, what needs to be considered? Do we believe this will be at all possible? Find some mind-bending ideas and considerations from Sam Brinson here.

“We’re still in the early days of brain science. The most complex thing in the universe still constantly surprises and confuses us. But, that won’t stop us from connecting them. I know that because we already have.

While the signals being sent back and forth are rudimentary words such as “hola,” we all know how quickly technology can change. Soon, perhaps, full blown telepathy will be here.

Exciting times these are. But let’s go further. What else might a network of brains be able to share? When the brain — the thing responsible for our memories, consciousness, and perception of the world — is open to interpretation…”

The Brain Tech to Merge Humans and AI Is Already Being Developed (Peter Diamandis)

Are you scared of artificial intelligence (AI)?Do you believe the warnings from folks like Prof. Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and others?Is AI the greatest tool humanity will ever create, or are we “summoning the demon”?To quote the head of AI at Singularity University, Neil Jacobstein, “It’s not artificial intelligence I’m worried about, it’s human stupidity.”In a recent Abundance 360 webinar, I interviewed Bryan Johnson, the founder of a new company called Kernel which he seeded with $100 million.To quote Bryan, “It’s not about AI vs. humans. Rather, it’s about creating HI, or ‘Human Intelligence’: the merger of humans and AI.”Let’s dive in…
