By 2050, they will be able to see ones thoughts...!!?

This article goes into detail of Ian Pearson's thoughts, he heads the British Telecom's futurology unit.

He speaks of the possibility of being able to actually download data from the brain, and compares the forthcoming PlayStation 3 as being "one percent as powerful as the human brain".

Rough estimate of course, when looking at the PS3 as hitting supercomputer status, and that the PS3 is 35 times as powerful as the PS2, so that is assuming the progression continues as so.

PlayStation 5 will probably be as powerful as the human brain
An interesting read, none-the-less.

You mean master system?

IMHO this sort of talk mirrors a complete lack of understanding of the human mind.

i never take these sort of stories very seriously; nobody knows well enough that they can guess what is going to be possible fifty years from now.

Yeah, it's always hard to take these kind of reads seriously, but they make for a good laugh at the least.

cool, so immortality is right around the corner, awsome. anyone else following my train of thought here, live forever in the synapses of a computer, thats hawt, I'd play half life 7 all the time...

My thoughts exactly. But I also have a very limited education in computers and the physical science behind them.

well what we do know is that information exists more as the impulses between synapses than what actually in your dendritic nerve cells. I suppose the reasoning is that once we can have as many synapses between computer components as there are in the human brain... y'know...

but I'd worry more about the internet, thats also millions of synapses, if not billions, tho we'd have to hit the trillions to get close to birthing that kind of neural network.

Pearson said that computer consciousness would make feasible a whole new sphere of emotional machines, such as airplanes that are afraid of crashing.
Wouldn't that potentionaly make the airplanes... afraid of flying?

yes, yes it would. you don't need to give machines emotions, you just need to program them do do what you want in all cases.

if (landingchoices = runway || landingchoices = sideofmountain)
{
if (plane.isworkingproperly()==TRUE)
{
land(runway);
}
else
{
killemallandletgodsortthemout();
}
}



see, i could easily do this stuff

i think we can look at the hot new movie Stealth featuring Jessica Biel, Jaime Foxx, and directed by Rob Cohen to see exactly what would happen if we made machines self aware...and what kind of terrible movies could be made f this happens.
