Enter The Matrix – Internet Of Thoughts Is Coming – Disturbing Or Exciting Technology?

Cynthia McKanzie – MessageToEagle.com –  Would you like to get instant access to vast knowledge and computing power via thought alone? You may get it sooner than you think. Scientists predict a ‘human brain/cloud interface’ will be available within just a few decades.

The ‘human brain/cloud interface’ (B/CI), will connect neurons and synapses in the brain to vast cloud-computing networks in real time, and give a person immediate access to the world’s knowledge and artificial intelligence, simply by thinking about a specific topic or question.

Does it sound like disturbing or exciting technology? It seems we are entering the Matrix, whether we like it or not.

The human brain comprises a remarkable information storage and processing system that possesses an extraordinary computation-per-volume efficiency. Our wrinkled neocortex is the newest, smartest, ‘conscious’ part of the brain and researchers think we can use it more efficiently if we hook it up to a computer.

The B/CI concept was initially proposed by futurist-author-inventor Ray Kurzweil, who suggested that neural nanorobots could be used to connect the neocortex of the human brain to a “synthetic neocortex” in the cloud.

“These devices would navigate the human vasculature, cross the blood-brain barrier, and precisely autoposition themselves among, or even within brain cells. They would then wirelessly transmit encoded information to and from a cloud-based supercomputer network for real-time brain-state monitoring and data extraction,” Robert Freitas, Jr., senior author of the research said.

In their science paper, researchers write that “Interfacing the human brain with the cloud via neuralnanorobotic technologies may be beneficial for humanity by assisting in the mitigation of the serious existential risks posed by the emergence of artificial general.

One such mitigation might involve the merging human brains with computers to prevent the dangers of unbridled artificial general intelligence. Neuralnanorobotics may indeed be a suitable technology to assist with reducing human existential risk potentially initiated by rapidly emerging artificial general intelligence by enabling the creation of an offsetting beneficial human augmentation technology.”

Scientists say promising technologies for B/CI developing an ‘internet of thoughts’ could become a reality before the turn of the century.

An internet of thought may sound like science fiction to most of us, but who knows what happens in the near future.
