There will be a staggering amount of misunderstanding on this technology and it will be.
My first neuro symposium was in 1997.
Neuralink can not read “un proceeded thoughts”: this means the only thoughts it could read are ones you have made ready to present to—speak. This is primarily from the phonological loop of Broca/Warnicke.
Neuralink can not present information to your consciousness that passes the 41 bit per second Shannon Limit. Anything past this bandwidth is equal to pumping undigested food in to your lower intestines.
Neuralink can at some point insert “un processed thoughts” to your subconscious. This if allowed by the user will create a quagmire and likely psychological trauma. There would be thoughts with no apparent origin.
Neuralink will not make you more “intelligent”. It could make you faster in responding to accessing data. Speed is not intelligence. Nor is just more data. You already have access to this data: the Internet.
Neuralink will help people with an array of severe neurological disorders. It will fundamentally change their lives in ways that will be hard to imagine today.
Neuralink or any other technologies that try to read “un processed thoughts” will get “abhabet soup” of the ideas that flow through our right brain. 99.999% are discarded and have no validity of how you really feel.
Neuralink or similar technology connected to any cloud will be seen by history as one of the biggest errors of judgement in technology deployments. This technology must be non-network and local only.
Neuralink in history will finally demonstrate that the Shannon Limit of human bandwidth is not a flaw but a feature. I came to this conclusion decades ago, why you only hear me talk about the human Shannon Limit.
When the rest of the technology world catches up with what you know results will be #TheIntelligenceAmplifier. Yes reading and transmitting in a silent voice. But working with the bandwidth limits not against them.
Be aware, fully aware what “video games” mean in Neuralink:
They will be the definition of what it is like to be insane.
You will have “people, places and thing” appear in your head.
This will cause trauma to a level we have not seen before.
See you here on Friday.
