Will we get brain-computer interfaces by 2037?

Recommended Posts

They have basic forms of it now. What all are you interested in using it for?

   With a name like "Obsessed With Gaming", I'm guessing the interest is not for using a BCI to figure the Square Root of Sodium Chloride...

Probably true lol.

Trying to make sure OP is not expecting something crazy out there.

If computer will be connected directly to the brain, and sending detailful data indistinguishable from the real world, you won't be able to tell if you're playing or living at given moment.

ps. Maybe you are already? How can you tell?

During playing human learns and have pleasure. Learning should not be boring and painful. People should not hate learning. Playing game which teaches you something is very convenient and effective way of gathering knowledge.

Why 2037? Seems very specific.

A computer can interpret your thoughts/intent to a degree now.

Primarily done at present for paralyzed individuals to allow them to control a cursor or to type. Robotic limb use(any physical device really) and Machine Aided Telepathy are additional applications possible.

There's various issues we still need to work out. We're not good at inputting information for example, though that could lead to the potential problem Sensei mentions. The brain can also leak information, like passwords, even without the user being conscious of the fact. Challenges on the hardware side to interface with the neurons as well. There's around 100 billion, they're squishy and behind a skull. Less invasive techniques means less data output to work with.

It's not telepathy though is it? Unless you think a book is telepathic.

Indeed, we're currently at a similar stage to nuclear fusion, it's twenty years away.

Not the fantasy sort of telepathy, no. Machine Aided. A computer interprets your output and then inputs it in some fashion to another brain or brains.

Be incredible for working together if perfected. Teams could access everyone's experience and perceptions.

I thought this was a pretty good review of the state of BCIs, even though it's five years old. Has a section on gaming too.

Indeed, but we still seem to be twenty years away.

There's a vast difference between a general output and a specific thought.

We were 20 years away, now we're 20 years further along.

Don't believe hype but we are making progress. One brain safe chip at a time.
