The idea initially is to have the little circuits gather detailed data on brain functions. But eventually ... the electronic swarms may prove useful for “controlling devices via thought....”
Ah yes, controlling devices (like your computer search function) via thought.
And what about the opposite possibility, controlling thought via devices (like the devices heralded in the article), that will turn us into "computerized people?"
Let's not have any illusions about what we are getting into here. Turning human beings into computer directed robots is not my idea of "human" progress.
