Experts: New Computers Can Delete Thoughts Without Your Knowledge Ian Johnston April 26, 2017 Wikipedia Commons "Neurotech scientists are rapidly mapping the brain and discovering new ways of controlling your thoughts and memories. Remember, Technocrats push the envelope because they can, without caring one whit about the collateral damage to humanity. ⁃ TN Editor “Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind,” wrote the playwright John Milton in 1634. But, nearly 400 years later, technological advances in machines that can read our thoughts mean the privacy of our brain is under threat. Now two biomedical ethicists are calling for the creation of new human rights laws to ensure people are protected, including “the right to cognitive liberty” and “the right to mental integrity”. Scientists have already developed devices capable of telling whether people are politically right-wing or left-wing. In one experiment, researchers were able to read people’s minds to tell with 70 per cent accuracy whether they planned to add or subtract two numbers. Facebook also recently revealed it had been secretly working on technology to read people’s minds so they could type by just thinking. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/facebook-mind-reading-brain-technology-building-8-regina-dugan-pentagon-a7692481.html And medical researchers have managed to connect part of a paralysed man’s brain to a computer to allow him to stimulate muscles in his arm so he could move it and feed himself. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/paralysed-man-moves-arm-for-first-time-in-years-using-brain-implant-that-can-read-his-thoughts-a7654761.html The ethicists, writing in a paper in the journal Life Sciences, Society and Policy, stressed the “unprecedented opportunities” that would result from the “ubiquitous distribution of cheaper, scalable and easy-to-use neuro-applications” that would make neurotechnology “intricately embedded in our everyday life”. https://lsspjournal.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40504-017-0050-1 However, such devices are open to abuse on a frightening degree, as the academics made clear. They warned that “malicious brain-hacking” and “hazardous uses of medical neurotechnology” could require a redefinition of the idea of mental integrity. “We suggest that in response to emerging neurotechnology possibilities, the right to mental integrity should not exclusively guarantee protection from mental illness or traumatic injury but also from unauthorised intrusions into a person’s mental wellbeing performed through the use of neurotechnology, especially if such intrusions result in physical or mental harm to the neurotechnology user,” the ethicists wrote. “The right to mental privacy is a neuro-specific privacy right which protects private or sensitive information in a person’s mind from unauthorised collection, storage, use, or even deletion in digital form or otherwise.” And they warned that the techniques were so sophisticated that people’s minds might be being read or interfered with without their knowledge. “Illicit intrusions into a person’s mental privacy may not necessarily involve coercion, as they could be performed under the threshold of a persons’ conscious experience,” they wrote in the paper." http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/delete-thoughts-read-your-mind-without-your-knowledge-neurotechnology-new-human-rights-laws-a7701661.html edited title and tags to include DNA and quantum technology
Espionage & Brain-Computer Interfaces Reverse Engineering The Technology - The Radar - Modern Warfare Series Deep_thought October 18, 2015 "In the technical overview of this article I discussed briefly the radar platform that is used to enable remote neural monitoring. Today, we will take a deeper dive into the technology and physics. From this information, we should get a good sense of the capabilities of a modern radar platform that most, even those who work with high-end gear in modern militaries, have probably never heard of, let alone operated. Radar Physics I'm not going to provide a tutorial on radar platforms. A site already exists that will provide a good overview of the various technologies and principles of operation. You can view that here: http://www.radartutorial.eu/index.en.html Modern radar platforms have come a long way since the days of providing basic range and altitude information. From complex anti-jamming capability, multiple beams to object identification and material analysis, modern military radars are some of the most complex technology to be found in operation today. The most advanced radars make use of a technique known as 'Atomic dielectric Resonance'. snip A New Radar With this new way of employing radio beams, we can now envisage a new way to construct a radar and given modern radar approaches, communication platforms. Rather than illuminate an entire area, we can used a single collaminated beam and scan an area to achieve the same effect. Even better, we can scan and produce real-time 3D imagery of underground tunnels, bases, cities, etc. Remote hacking of electronic devices and spot jamming of WIFI, or cellular phones, becomes straight forward. We can also place survivable communications kilometers below the Earth and still have it communicate with satellites. Even Mount Everest wouldn't block a signal and tracking a common house fly through a city would be trivial. Given the nature of a low power collaminated beam, most of the energy is returned via the path of delivery resulting in a very low probability of discovery. The big challenge in all of this is similar to laser technology, appropriate optics. Depending on the requirements, solutions come in many forms from meta-materials to electronically controlled plasmas. In this sense, optics and beam steering are most likely unified processes. From here, it is a matter of scaling it up to an array and iteratively improving upon components to reduce both form factor and power consumption. The end result is a mutli-role imagery/communications radar that can be driven as a software defined system and re-purposed as required on the fly. With such a platform, a single standard satellite can be developed all feeding back to a strong AI, which is connecting the dots in intelligence from all available sources. But what happens when we point such a radar at the human body? ADR allows us to bypass the traditional absorption of skin and tissue to deliver radio energy accurately to any portion of the body. Such delivery of energy causes neurons to be stimulated by the exact same principle that causes peripheral nerve stimulation in MRI. It also returns information in the reflected beam that can be used to decode neural activity. This is the technology that gives rise to Remote Neural Monitoring and the current US human experimentation program that is employing these radar to manipulate human thought processes and physical control the human body remotely. It should be crystal clear now that this technology is certainly a WMD. It doesn't take much to kill a human with such tech and a single satellite with 200-1000 beams would make a nuclear bomb seem like a potato gun in comparison. Whilst satellites are beyond many nations, tanks are not. A system such as this mounted to a tank can theoretically create an exclusion (read genocide) zone of 60km where no form of cover will provide protection for infantry. This is something well with the capabilities of many smaller nations. Given this, we require urgent political intervention to update the laws of war and Geneve conventions to ban the deployment of such technology in any capacity beyond read capability. http://deepthought.newsvine.com/_news/2015/10/18/34492106-espionage-brain-computer-interfaces-reverse-engineering-the-technology-the-radar-modern-warfare-series Tx Reddwolf Now I can't help but think of lots of incidences taking place, such as riots, etc.
