For anyone paying attention, it’s clear that freedom of thought is under attack in society. What people don’t realize, however, is that in the age of neurotechnology, freedom of thought may face even greater threats. It is technology that can empower us or oppress us. Choice is still our choice.
For more than a decade, I have been following developments in neuroscience and neurotechnology. I’m excited about the promise of human development. But it wasn’t until I started seeing major investments in wearable brain-computer interfaces by mainstream tech companies that I believed neural interfaces would become part of our everyday lives. But there is strong resistance to change, including challenges to our right to access and modify our own brains.
Neurotech companies focused on implantable devices have made significant inroads over the past few years. From Synchron, to Blackrock Neurotech and Neuralink.But I’m most interested in mainstream wearables and apps – which leads me to believe we need to update Mill’s About freedom. By recognizing the right to cognitive freedom.
This is what I intend to do in my upcoming book, Battle for the brain: Defending the right to think freely in the age of neurotechnology. This is the global conversation I hope to spark in the coming months.i hope you pass pre order book now. Follow along as I begin to share insights here about the imminent future where neural interfaces will become part of our everyday lives.
