Okay, I'm excited about Neuralink, maybe you are not. Seem like an episode of Black Mirror coming to reality.
But let's assume if in Future this actually works and this technology is assessable to masses than that means we might get a chance to develop something using it. I'm pretty sure that they probably provide an emulator for that but what if to even test something you build(without errors obviously) on you or probably wanna get an implant trying that someone else builds?
Damn, there are so many possibilities ahead. What are your thoughts on this?

Short answer nope, long answer why put a chip on yourself like a dog tag. Which raise data privacy concerns as they can essentially monitor 24/7. Plus there's really no long term health research on having it with you.
Where anyone can affect your thinking, track you or harm yourself in health since there's not a lot of of research on long terms health risk & maintenance of the hardware. Plus putting that aside what is the chances of anyone hacking into it to disable or make life a living hell by just introducing malware.
Of course not it short term but question is what about in long term when this technology is more advanced.
Well if your anime person, Sword Art Online or Accel World comes to mind to make friends, learn, play games or even affecting the world population through it.
Yup the biggest shapers of technology is actually fiction, writers, movies, tv shows & songs who uses their imagination to do it. Which we draw our inspiration from, for example Star Trek's communicator device is in our hands now.
Oh okay. Thanks for suggestions but I’m not a anime person 😅
It's alright cause I would pick this over the neural link due to clear economic benefits it presents.
Red Light machine that replaces MRI machine
First of all, I would get one of those. Not as the first but one of the first few thousands. (I don't want to end having my brain fried 😅). But I'm totally hyped for this kind of technology. I think that this can also be perfectly integrated with a augmented reality glasses (hololens now, Apple glass in the future?). Just thinking about the last movie I just bought and than the glasses will play them for me 😆. But there are some kind of things I don't want. e.g. there shouldn't be a direct internet connection. Everything should be routed via phone.. so I can controll what "app" will send what data... Data privacy is a small concern for me here. Because sometimes I have some stupid ideas. 😅😅😅 I wouldn't want anybody to use these for advertisements 🤣
Well yes. Like I said, it should be routed over my phone that i can controll it. I think the firmware should be open sourced. Than it would be only small concerns.
A Google or Apple Phone? Nothing on a Google or Apple Phone is open source.
I wouldn't do that.
Android is open source (not everything, but enough). If you have deep access with root, you can do alot of stuff. Even without, you can block specific network requests.
You need to be an experienced developer to do so, but i think that controlling the data flow is possible if it is routed over a phone.
Wow that VR angel would be so awesome. 🙌🏼🤩
This kinda gives off 1984 vibes to me...
Why is that ?!
I'm 1984 the government no only controls your every move, but also you thought - through relentless propaganda and could, on top of that, read your thought - though not directly. This, in my opinion can give a government - any government - the power to control and read thought. Obviously at this time this technology is no where close to that but I feel it won't take to long to get to that point and for the government (and ad companies) to start abusing it.
TL;DR This is fine now but could be dangerous in the future
Which people getting more aware about privacy now, I think these things companies will tackle first before making it assessable to all.
Non-invasive would be the first criterion...
I have heard that future is technologically-enhanced human, but I do fear that we will be enhanced in a stupider way...
Also, even if it is non-invasive, being a fallible human can be fun. Fun factor is the most important.
Even then, what's the difference between Neuralink and LSD (drugs)?
Short answer: no.
Sorry this thing makes me irrationally angry somehow 😅
This article covers my reaction to the presentation pretty well: I was excited for Neuralink. Then I watched Elon Musk’s stupid demo
This tech seems interesting but imagines someone (or even a government) introduce the system and can control a population?
Well controlling to that extent may be overkill for government as then it won’t be called a government it will be monarchie.
I would not. No explanation needed I think.
Being able to save and relive memories would be an awesome feature. I would test it out for a short while.
It's all sunshine and roses until someone says "Execute Order 66"
Yes but I would like a Biotic Implant like in the Mass Effect universe so that i get powers 😄 And a private firewall so I cant get hacked.
