Traversed edges per second and brain myelination

The history of neuroscience in general, and myelination in particular, is replete with comparisons between brains and computers.

For example, the first suggested function of myelin in the 1850s as an insulator of electricity was made by analogy to electric wires, which had just recently been developed. 307 more words

Tech industry players push for 'brain-computer interface'

The development of artificial intelligence involves huge inherent risks, as anyone who has seen a few science fiction movies could probably tell you. Despite understanding this, however, tech tycoons are recklessly pushing to develop dystopian brain-implanted cyborg technologies as they see a chance to profit — and that the potential for things to go wrong, while enormous, is more likely to negatively impact the lives of random customers and the general population rather than their own bottom lines or personal well-being. 670 more words
