Controlling Everything With Brain Powered Computers

Controlling Everything With Brain Powered Computers
Sci-fi books, movies, and television shows envision a future where everything was controlled by our brains and humans could interface directly with computers and robotics. While it made for an interesting story, few of us believed that we would legitimately see this happen. However, in our world today brain controlled computers help paralyzed people interact with their world and that may be the base for a future where we control almost everything with our brains.
How Brain Controlled Computers May Be Our Future
While they still sound like the stuff of sci-fi, brain powered computers are a very real thing. Neuroscientists today are working tirelessly on building better human brain to computer interfaces, and their results are impressive. They have helped many people regain control over parts of their lives with these interfaces and robotics, they have even helped one paralyzed individual set a world record for typing.
Much of this research is currently devoted to helping paralyzed individuals regain mobility and control in their lives. However, since these are digital interfaces it is not outlandish to imagine we can connect people to the Internet and the Internet of things around them. If scientists and researchers can actually hook a human brain up to the Internet of Things, there is no telling what we would be able to accomplish. Is your house too warm? Turn on the air conditioning with a thought. Did you forget to turn off lights when you left? If you are connected to WiFi, you might be able to turn those off remotely.
Potential Issues of Mind Controlled Computers
Some of the potential issues of connecting human brains directly to the Internet and Internet of Things are more apparent than others. Whenever anything is connected to the Internet of Things, its security seems to plummet. Think about all the botnets running on the small computers in appliances, or how haphazard the security coding of these devices are. These devices are under constant attack by malicious actors because of their insecurities. Usually they end up as part of some botnet. Would this mean that human minds could end up as botnets too?
Another potential issue that could arise is phantom or unintentional use of connected devices. What if an individual was contemplating turning on a light rather than definitely wanting to? Would the interface be able to distinguish intentional from contemplative thought? Dreaming might be another issue. We have all had truly insane dreams, but even the most mild could end up moving something or interacting with an interface unintentionally. While it could be something as harmless as turning on a light, it could also be dangerous if a device the mind interfaced with had any sort of destructive capabilities.
Regardless, this seems like an interesting possibility and I – for one – would love to learn more about how researchers and scientists plan on making this a safe and ubiquitous technology.
