Brain chips in human beings
Superhuman stories existed since ancient Greece, Prometheus can steal the fire of the gods. In fact, some flew by the Sun. Kids dream about Superman, Batman. Not just children, no matter the Manager, the Governor, a millionaire even scientists, are all sedated with Terminator, Iron Man.
All fiction. But science fiction was written some 50 years ago has become a reality. In the mid-80s popular television series Knight Rider, a smart car with artificial intelligence that not only can talk with the compromised, Michael Knight, but also move itself and accelerate its speed avoid gangster pursuit.
By 2016 Google did try a car without a driver. Soon there was already a taxi without a driver. Passengers enter, sit down, the door closes on its own, just talk: “road X, number Y. NY.”
Fantastic developing technologies such as nanotechnology, allows the design of material at the level of atoms and molecules. Half a century ago only six songs could be recorded in a black disc. More succinct when recorded in the Ribbon. Nanotechnology enables materials repository for hundreds of songs in a piece of VCD. Thin materials such as yellow boxes on a phone card that can store thousands of phone numbers, now in the smartphone, SD Card can hold thousands of songs.
Useful technology help human, is now starting in order to make the memory chips helped engineer the human brain. Last year in the United Kingdom, a chip is connected to the brain of Ian Burkhart, an arm paralyzed. This chip is about the size of a couple of coins placed on top of the head. Like a computer chip, generally make use of algorithms to elaborate machine procedure, breaking codes, and took a nervous conclusion from scanned signals of fine micro-electrodes in specific areas of the brain that control armrests.
From reading these thoughts, chip issued instructions in the form of electrical pulses that control 130 points of Ian Burkhart’s arm. It forces the arm muscles to move. Ian Burkhart again can take a glass, pouring water, also swiping his credit card. The results of these experiments published in the journal Nature and published in the word media, such as The Guardian, Huffington Post, and New York Times.
All amazed, dreams about computers that work together with the human brain becomes a reality, it was only with chips of some coins. Later, at one point, chip planted since the children, beautiful childhood when choosing the ice cream at the store, or running around cheered and embraced the father who comes from traveling, easy to remember, fully visualized, and detailed.
Information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology allow a “Super computer” so small that need a microscope to see it. Even a robot, the size only of cells. It could have ruled the kidney tissue repair or a swollen liver. Indeed, it is still science fiction, and many who suggested the technical difficulties that must be faced. But was not it when Knight Rider, 35 years ago, a driverless car was also a delusion?
