    Should hacking into the people's brain be accepted? If it would be possible, then would you accept it or not?

    Do you have any examples of how this might be accomplished?

    I have a guess that there could be some medical circumstances where it could be seen as beneficial, some military where it would be very controversial and other financial where it could be seen as sleazy.

    When it comes to hacking the brains of other life forms it would seem to be a different question.

    I have zero expertise in this area,so am just expressing an interest.

    What are the obviously beneficial uses that might come on stream ,I wonder.....

    This seems to be the largest problem. The ethics issue appears to be strictly philosophical.

    But they used to hack into people's brains. It was called "lobotomy". Maybe they still do in some places. Anybody know?

    However it is done, if it could be used to delete bad memories, it would certainly be useful in at least one application!

    I think it's outrageous and we should all wear tinfoil hats to preclude any such possibility:

    Quoting from the link in the Tribune:

    "According to the Wisconsin company, the chips inserted in their workers will help them open security doors, store personal medical information, log into their computers and more easily purchase snacks."

    That is pretty scary, especially the snacks part!

    Imagine implanted quantum chips with ultra-high capability (1).

    They are programmed with ultra-advanced AI that decides if what you are doing is in the best interests of Big Brother. If not, it can make an enzyme to produce a neurotoxin to take you out.

    No need to reprogram Winston. Too many others, dedicated chips off the ol' block, are waiting in the wings.....

    If "hacking into people's brains", requires an axe then I'm against it.

    Here's a legendary video about the technology that makes hacking possible. Linus Torvalds said it's possible. But why in hell did two voters want to accept this, because on this planet, this technology is used to control and torture people, instead of having a friendly chat.

    Amazed that the Orwellian society we now live in would have been unacceptable only 50 years ago.
    Einstein predicted any war following a nuclear one would be fought with sticks and stones. More likely now it would be fought with robots.
    But who are the robots? Probably micro-chipped humans.

    It is possible, but it is also possible to build a faster than light ship (sort of). Doesn't mean we can do it yet and there is no credible evidence to support that it ever has been done (unless you consider brainwashing "hacking").
