News always comes late to me so I’m not entirely sure about this but I’ve heard about a few scientists/engineers designing a small (like really really really small) chip that connects to your brain - and allows you to mentally surf the internet! This would obviously be mega-expensive at first but putting aside costs for now, what do you think about it? Is it a good idea? Would you get it? Taking into account that if you can access the internet, like on your phone or computer, through this chip people would be able to access (hack) you if you don’t have a good firewall… I’d imagine so, anyway.

No, because then, I’d probably spend my math hours surfing on adult webs.
While I feel that would make it a lot more bearable, I’d hate to imagine what would happen to my brain if I caught a virus or got hacked.

I like the idea of how easy it would be to access information, but there’d be so many complications and it’d be too risky.

My same opinion^
Imagine getting hacked. Did anyone see that movie where these kids play Sims with real people? It could be like that O.O

I’ll just be curious here, but how exactly can you write without spelling?

I k kW it’d be risky, but I would definitely go for it. I’d just google the answers for questions in class. Saves everyone’s time. And if I get a virus, I’ll just find a way of suing someone,

I think it’s a fascinating idea, total moment of science fiction coming to life, as the works of Peter F. Hamilton have had integrated neural circuitry in them for years. I wonder if they will combine it with the technology just now surfacing to put user interfaces into contact lenses.

I think it might be a bit terrifying in some respects as people have pointed out, but consider the next steps. School could be totally unnecessary within 100 years. You want to become a doctor? Download all the required knowledge and skill directly into your long term memory and away you go. Imagine the possibilities of the human race with all that expertise and knowledge available to everyone!!

In reality though I fear far too many people would just spend all day stood still as images of lolcats came up over their eyes.

Deon you’ve gotta take this into consideration. The amount of info we’d be able to download would be potentially infinite, as you said with doctors, imagine all the new discoveries they’d make. You’d have to keep upgrading your info as they keep discovering stuff with dramatic speed.
Our brains can store a lot of info but they’d eventually run out of space.

Plus it would pretty much kill one’s individuality wouldn’t it? If I had access to the same kind of information you could download, what makes me different from you?

The fact that our brains our finite and so we would choose to access the information which truly inspires us. You’d still have world experts etc due to the fact that nobody can know everything at the same time purely down to the amount of data required.

Right, ok, but what would make you different from a person with your same passion?
And how would the world expert thing work? If they discover something and upload that information , wouldn’t downloading the info give you the same knowledge?
