  • Psychophysiologist Alexander Kaplan: Why Elon Musk is Weaving “Neural Lace” and Will AI Help Conserve Resources for Human Brain?

    Today’s computers don’t just solve mathematical problems at the drop of a hat – they also beat world champions in chess, Go and poker. Does this mean that artificial intelligence is finally here and could soon pose danger to humans? Or is human-machine symbiosis the way of the future? It’s no coincidence that even Elon Musk and Facebook are now developing neural interface technology for direct brain-to-computer interaction. What this will lead us to, what is “neural lace” and “cybersymb” and what myths surround the topic of the human brain – these were the topics of the open lecture given at ITMO University by Alexander Kaplan, Russia’s leading brain-machine interface developer and head of Laboratory for Neurophysiology and Neuro-Computer Interfaces at Moscow State University.
