Comment Neuroengineering (Score 1) 484

I don't see why anyone thinks The Singularity has happened. If they engineered narcotics into our neural system that had no disadvantages (only euphoria of ideal magnitude) than I'd say we're starting to approach the era of where technology is blended into us and takes us into more control and innovation in everyday life. BCS and Neuroscience and BME are so young. We're nowhere. Computer advancements only matter as far as them getting small and compatible enough to mimic and enhance brain functionality, etc. inside us.

Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable. Any system which depends on human reliability is unreliable. -- Gilb
