A LEADING expert on the ethical, legal and social implications of biosciences has revealed her fears over the possibility of the US government gaining access to our thoughts using artificial intelligence.

The CIA were involved in a programme of experiments on humans and animals to identify and develop drugs capable of mind control back in the 1950s. Project MKUltra was organised through the Office of Scientific Intelligence and coordinated with the U.S. Army Biological Warfare Laboratories in a bid to force confessions during interrogations. Nita Farahany, a leading scientist has now revealed how artificial intelligence may allow for history to repeat itself once again.

“With our growing capabilities in neuroscience, artificial intelligence and machine learning, we may soon know a lot more of what’s happening in the human brain,” she revealed at a TedTalk event.

“I’m deeply concerned about what this means for our freedom and what kinds of protections we need.

“I believe we need a right to cognitive liberty, as a human right that needs to be protected.

“If not, our freedom of thought, access and control over our own brains and our mental privacy will be threatened.”

Farahany revealed how even the most basic brain-tracking devices, using technology similar to fitness trackers, could soon be part of our everyday routine.

She detailed: “I wore one of the early consumer-based EEG (electroencephalogram) devices, which recorded the electrical activity in my brain in real time.

“It’s not unlike the fitness trackers that some of you may be wearing to measure your heart rate or the steps that you’ve taken, or even your sleep activity.

“It’s hardly the most sophisticated brain imaging technique on the market, but it’s already the most portable and the most likely to impact our everyday lives.
