Let’s remember that the concept of interface is defined as the communication between two systems or programmes of any type that provides a link at different levels. One of the better known examples is VIRTUAL REALITY.
Elon Musk has announced that, through Neuralink, he will be able to help cure neurological disorders such as insomnia, depression or memory loss, and to enhance our own abilities until we can write with our thoughts or drive a vehicle through our minds.
All this no longer seems like science fiction, because it’s already come true or nearly so. The technology implanted in a pig’s head using a small instrument (Neuralink BCI) connected to the brain by thousands of electrodes has made it possible to verify its functionality. This process opens the door to a future (we’re led to believe that it’s close at hand) in which the interfaces between a central computer and our brains would favour the human being, turning it into a superhuman being. It would become immune to practically all diseases and increase its ability to learn and retain data. It might even (pay close attention to this one) manage to store its memories, depositing them in the drop box better known as Cloud, enrolling the human being into VIRTUAL REALITY indefinitely. Once the progress of science (seemingly not too far away) allows for a body with the best physical feats available to be provided on demand, that mind can continue to exist with all its power indefinitely.
In our next article on this topic, we’ll present examples of what begins to not longer be an anticipation of what is to come, but rather a technological reality that will give birth to a new humanity.
