Direct Human Brain – AI – Interface System technologies
© by Gina Rydland
Lack of factual information creates a naive conception of the development process of technologies sanctioned as safe to use, clouding the public debate and undermining sufficient grounds for government decision making. Securing human rights and safety when testing and implementing safe-to-use technologies demands access to more specialized and accurate knowledge than today’s global political, military and industrial climate permits.
Rigorous monitoring by government ministries and committees, human rights organizations, and the public is an essential tool to secure against abuse and violation of human rights. Brain and body (non) invasive technologies represents new opportunities for manipulation and control and should be addressed in proper foras. Foras inside the military and industry have long since been established, but little has been done to bring an accurate and deeper description of relevance out to the public. The industry mainly address the public as consumers, which is rooted in the very nature and goal of military-industrial research and development, failing to emphasize security issues involving public health and environment.
Moving into the area of direct human brain – AI – interface systems, information available is at best sketchy. However, obscure signals within public research and development shows that a variety of sponsors are making development of such technologies not only feasible but operational without public knowledge and debate. The schedule for releasing [less] advanced human brain – AI – interface technologies meant for the public market may seem uncertain. Examples include the following: Diagnostics and treatment of psychiatric disorders and diseases rooted in the brain or physical or mental trauma; the learning process, behavior, education and communication; and, enhancement of brain functions, intelligence and capacity.
The details of today’s practical applications and the liability of the direct human brain – AI – interface system in use for intelligence needs remain non-disclosed. The road to a global, fully operational and economically viable DHB – AI – IS (Direct Human Brain – AI – Interface System) is likely to be a continuing challenge for many decades. The discovered potentials outweigh the time and resources used for research and development, making it a high priority. An intelligence acquisition and surveillance system based on a fully operational direct human brain – AI – interface technology will reshape military warfare, intelligence communication and operations.
The precautionary principle will never be sufficient to protect individuals or society from harm when the military industry pushes for further development of DHB – AI – IS. The only reliable way to develop safe-to-use technologies is, unfortunately, to run full scale tests on place and in realtime situations.
Inside the military industry, monitoring of professional and technical aspects during a development process is highly organized. In contrast, control and mapping of the effects on environment, society, health, and individuals during full scale implementation is too complicated, demanding vast resources, leaving an incomplete overview.
The public means to supervise and control how law and ethics is practiced inside classified research and development projects involving human experimentation is non-existent. A broader cooperation and a more open dialogue between representatives from military industries and intelligence, government, human rights organizations and the public needs to be established to protect the individual and society from harm in the process of development.
The potential negative effects of the DHB – AI – IS on humans and environment demands trained personnel to provide advice and information on several levels of society. To the victims, psychological and medical help, economical support and the provision of a lawyer, is decisive. This type of specializing in regards to DHB – AI – IS technologies is yet to be established inside the public domain.
The present situation leaves no hope of an immediate solution where law is able to protect humans or society against experiments conducted in classified research projects.
IRPT works for a broader understanding and openness regarding these issues to, at least, be able to help and support victims of research and development of DHB – AI – IS technologies. Acknowledgement from government resulting in new legislations and drastic actions to ensure the safety of humans and the environment is of vital importance.
