BCI Technologies Are The Future Warfare
The human brain might soon become the sixth ”domain” for warfare, along with land, space, air, sea and cyberspace. Brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies, which connect the human brain to devices, are now considered the most powerful tool that can compel an adversary to submit to one’s will. BCIs can help injured or disabled soldiers to remain on active duty post-injury, enable paralyzed individuals to use their brain to type, or allow amputees to feel using bionic limbs. Most researches in this field are aimed at security purposes, though misapplication of such technology has many implications for the future of warfare, cause they can be exploited if hacked. This might result in manipulating a soldier’s BCI during conflict so that they were forced to pull the gun trigger on friendlies, installing malicious code in their own secure computer system or divulging information to the enemy. Recent experiments have proven, that biotechnological systems are rather vulnerable, so it’s top important to prevent BCIs from being disrupted or manipulated, and protect individual’s brain against enemy’s hacking.
