United StatesMore than half of those surveyed said they would consider attaching a computer chip to their brain.
Pew Research conducted a survey of 10,260 adults in the US. The questions are mainly about public opinion about advanced technologies such as brain computing. To And self-driving cars.
78% of respondents oppose the use of brain chips to improve their cognitive abilities. However, 59% said they would adopt this technology if they had autonomy, meaning they could turn the control chips located in their brains on and off at will.
“It’s about control. People think: If I could control this technology, I’m more open to it,” said Alex Tyson, Pew Research VP.
Accordingly Good luckFollowing in the footsteps of tech billionaire Neuralink, the brain computing sector, including brain chip implantation, has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. Elon Musk The founders made some progress in the lab. Musk once confirmed that Neuralink’s technology will be used to empower people in the future, allowing people to store and play with memories, such as watching videos on a computer. However, experts believe that this dream is far from reality.
The Brain Implant Chip is currently being used primarily in clinical trials to help restore function in patients with severe paralysis who are unable to self-manage. These computer chips are small, medical devices that are surgically attached to the brain, where they can last for years. However, planted people cannot control themselves, but require the intervention of others.
In addition, according to the survey, 83% of Americans say that human brain chip tests should meet stricter standards than the current implantation of medical devices. Most people fear the safety of technology when it is placed inside their body.
The survey also found that Americans are wary of driverless vehicles. 44% think self-driving cars are widely accepted as a “bad idea”, 26% say it is a “good idea” and 29% say “not sure”. However, 70% are willing to accept self-driving cars if they have recognizable signs or features on the road. 67% said such vehicles would be more acceptable if they had their own lane.
