O título desse post, assim como os tweets abaixo, são do neurocientista Moran Cerf durante apresentação no MIT Media Lab hoje à tarde. É evidente que não conhecemos todo o potencial de nossos cérebros, mas também que não estamos preparados para incorporar nossas mentes à tecnologia, pelo menos não sem levantar barreiras éticas ou de privacidade.
Se não conseguimos expressar tudo o que pensamos, há uma grande fatia que permanece enclausurada e nunca chega a ver a luz do dia.
Understanding how the brain works leads to understanding why we do what we do.
We think we’re in control because the things we want are happening; we assume we’re the one driving the wagon.
Changes to our brain lead to changes in our behavior.
We rewrite history to explain how we ended up where we are. Our brains justify everything.
When the brain recognizes something our brain cells burst into activity, and we can see the moment before it happens.
We observe our own language as much as the audience does, but we claim agency of our words.
We can now see brain activity without actually going inside the brain.
In 2010 I was misquoted saying a dream recorder was possible, and argued against it. Four years later it was invented
We can see that you’re going to make a choice seconds before you make it, and play your own brain against you.
By looking inside the brain we can anticipate every move, no matter how fast a person moves.
By monitoring brain activity we can tell what ending an audience will want from the movie they are watching.
Your bodies listens to and react to cues much faster than you can consciously process them.
When we’re sleeping we do shut down some of the barriers in the brain. We get much more access to who you really are.
You’re a lot less likely to lie to yourself when you are sleeping.
The biggest problem with bringing brain-reading tech to market is that we are not ready for it.
