Five Ethical Challenges of Advanced Brain Computer Interfaces | Public Interest Technology

Advanced brain computer interfaces like the one being developed by Elon Musk’s Neuralink have the potential to transform our lives for the better. But they also come with complex ethical challenges.

In this collaboration with Elma Hajric, Risk Bites dives into some of ethical risks and responsible innovation challenges associated with Neuralink-like advanced brain machine interfaces.

Elma is currently a PhD student in the Human and Social Dimension of Science and Technology program in Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society.

The video is part of Risk Bites series on Public Interest Technology – technology in the service of public good.

  1. I want to send Elon musk to Mars! Tell the government to stay the hell out of my brain! It's called Transhumanism! This is what they are going to do to everyone with the vaccines! I love being one of God's humans ❤️

  2. I was forced to take an implant at 316 east chestnut st Louisville ky in July of 2012 at the ccc jail. I've been a test subject for the last 5 years. I have an x ray showing the chip in Louisville. I moved out of ky to avoid being set up by the Louisville Metro Police Department. If your from Louisville you know what I'm talking about….fake cia training center. I know the name of the tech that updated the system in the basement(braingate system) help me put a stop to this inhumane testing and torture. I have the chip, I have an x ray. I eyewitnesseed the braingate system being used. My family and friends as well as councilors believe me. I have called the police departments. (LMPD and Sheriff) as well as the ombudsman. They all know what I'm talking about, but it's out of their jurisdiction. It's corrections jurisdiction.They never answer the phone. Ever.
