The neuroweapons threat

By James Giordano | May 31, 2016




Yet like most powerful scientific breakthroughs, neurotechnologies that allow brains to control machines—or machines to read or control brains—inevitably bring with them the threat of weaponization and misuse, a threat that existing UN conventions designed to limit biological and chemical weapons do not yet cover and which ethical discussions of these new technologies tend to give short shrift. (It may seem like science fiction, but according to a September 2015 article in Foreign Policy, “The same brain-scanning machines meant to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease or autism could potentially read someone’s private thoughts. Computer systems attached to brain tissue that allow paralyzed patients to control robotic appendages with thought alone could also be used by a state to direct bionic soldiers or pilot aircraft. And devices designed to aid a deteriorating mind could alternatively be used to implant new memories, or to extinguish existing ones, in allies and enemies alike.”)

Despite the daunting complexity of the task, it’s time for the nations of the world to start closing these legal and ethical gaps—and taking other security precautions—if they hope to control the neuroweapons threat.

New device has been created that can analyse brainwaves of non-verbal patients

The machine can then turn them into sentences on computer screen in real time

Could restore communication to people who can't speak or type due to paralysis

Produces sentences from a 1,152-word vocabulary at 29.4 characters per minute




Despite the success of the device, the researchers cautioned that further work is required to demonstrate if this approach can be used successfully in more participants

Free and open to all, the hackathon took place over the last weekend of October 2022 and attendees from various backgrounds came together to speculate on possible use-cases of Neurotechnology and Brain-Computer Interfaces [BCI].
