What if we fixed our genetic flaws, fortified our bodies with replacement organs and robotic limbs, and enhanced our minds with technology and drugs?
A brain-computer interface allows people with paralysis to directly operate an off-the-shelf tablet device just by thinking.
The 20th Neuroinformatics International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks brought together major experts in the field.
Within four years DARPA wants a nickle-size, wireless device able to record activity of 1 million neurons at once.
Building a Better Human: How scientists plan to merge man and machine to transcend human limitations
The goal of using brain-computer interfaces for human enhancement may be a long way off, but the future is also bright.
Creating super intelligence or enhancing the brains of patients with neurological disorders through brain augmentation is currently a hot topic.
Using tiny “threads” thinner than human hair, Neuralink said that it has made great strides in building a "symbiosis" between man and machine.
Helping or hacking? Engineers and ethicists must work together on brain-computer interface technology
The goal should be that the ethical standards and the technology will mature together to ensure BCI users are confident their privacy is being protected.
Musk's favoured strategy is to hook us into computers, so that we become as clever as state-of-the-art artificial intelligence.
It might seem like science fiction, but the idea of connecting the brain to a computer isn’t all that new.
