In this episode of the Life in 2030 podcast, we explore the emerging field of Brain-Computer Interfaces, or BCI for short. It’s a field that’s already allowing amputees to control their prosthetic arms simply through the use of their thoughts, but in a few decades, its ability to make thoughts and data interchangeable opens up a world of opportunities, from surfing the web Matrix-style, to tech-enabled telepathy, and in particular to this episode, convicting criminals of hard-to-prove crimes.
What do you think? Is thought reading technology all it’s cracked up to be? Will it play a big role in our legal system? Will it be banned altogether? Where else do you think thought reading tech will play a big role in our future society?
