https://www.nature.com/news/ai-controlled-brain-implants-for-mood-disorders-tested-in-people-1.23031

Two DARPA funded teams are entering preliminary human testing on an implant that reads minds and through a technique called "deep-brain stimulation" can affect and counteract things like moods, emotions, and cognitive function.

Deep-brain stimulation has been used to treat Parkinson's, but constant stimulation has been shown ineffective for the alleged purposes of this brain chip. They feel it is different this time because it only turns on during undesirable activity through an artificial intelligence.

Who couldn't be excited that the elusive nerve staple is quickly being developed and will soon be available to help all the unfortunates love blissful and controlled lives.

I think this is a good idea. If people are controlled it will fix a lot of the problems around this world.

You are technically making an argument that could also justify dictatorship.
Anyway, I do not think that such technology could actually be festible within this century. I learn this in my psychology study: Human neural structures are very plastic and is heavily affected by culture and environment; technology that could read and control people's mind might only work on people from certain culture and nations. This is alot like the fictional nerve gear of Sword Art Online anime.

Do you want to be controlled like a puppet, too, because that is their aim? They want to control everything about you. As soon as you are no longer useful to them, they will simply turn you off.

Wow, some humans are so brainwashed that they think that being a slave is a good thing.

It is a good thing though. Finally someone to tell us what and how to do things. No one will every have to worry about anything again because the higher ups will take care of all of our problems.

That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. OMG. We are living in a time where humans want to be slaves and they think it's a good thing. So you want to be a slave because you are too lazy to figure out your own problems? A government that wants to control you like that is not benevolent. It will only use and abuse you until you die. You are nothing to them. Have you learned anything from the movie The Matrix?

Not just my problems but the rest of the world too. It's because we are free to think the way we want that we have all the problems in this world. (Do no you get it yet? How far must I push my point before you get it?)

Slavery is good cus benevolent governments will fix all our problems if we let them enslave us.


Yeah tell that to the slaves of the confederate states of america.

I'm sure the slave owners there felt they were "taking good care of the poor slaves"

I mean just look we are giving them food and shelter. They couldnt find a solution to that problem on their own.

Pretty much this. The implants do certainly raise ethical concerns, but there's no need to make them out like mind control devices. This isn't infowars.

There may be no need to, but it is pleasant and clears the passages. Also, it preempts other people going that far, encourages people to read the article, and promotes healthy shell growth.

Maybe they should contact the CIA for advice on how to properly influence peoples actions.

The issue is once the chip is implanted who is to say it isn't some nefarious mind control device? Since the devs can literally change your behavior and the very essence of who you are. This is at the very core of why such experiments get deemed monstrous and UN-ethical. The fear(real or imagined) and questions such a technology would raise will likely get this whole project scrapped. Glad to know hundreds of millions of tax dollars are being spent on what equates to prozac on steroids(pardon the expression).

EDIT: This looks a bit like MK Ultra IMO, Though it looks like it could benefit those with epilepsy if I am reading right.
