The Big Tech Titan recently revealed his goal of building a mind reading machine that will take augmented reality devices to a new level.
During a video recorded appearance at Harvard Law School, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained the type of mind-reading technology he is looking forward to creating in the coming decades at Facebook. In short, Zuckerberg believes it is possible for Facebook to create a “machine learning system” to understand thought patterns and interface directly with a person’s mind to operate a computer or augmented reality product.
Explaining the possible augmented reality technology, Zuckerberg said that “We have showed this demo of basically, can someone type by thinking? And of course when you talk about brain computer interfaces, there’s two dimensions of that work. There’s external stuff, and then internal stuff that’s invasive.”
“A bunch of folks who are doing this research showed a bunch of people images, I think it was animals, while having kind of a net on their head,” Zuckerberg explained that this “trained a machine learning system basically on what the pattern of that imagery looked like when a person was looking at different animals, then told the person to think about different animals, and it can predict what the person was thinking about in broad strokes just based on neural activity.”
Harvard Professor Jonathon Zittrain replied immediately that the “Fifth Amendment implications are staggering,” which led Zuckerberg to immediately try to deflect to another topic.
“Presumably this would be something someone would choose to use as a product, there’s of course all the other implications, but yeah this is going to be an interesting thing down the line,” said Zuckerberg, “I really don’t know how we got to this.”
This idea was previewed by Wired two years ago in an article suggesting Facebook is in a race to be the first to create technology that can interface with the human brain.
Dugan once oversaw Darpa, the visionary research arm of the US Department of Defense. Now, after a stint at Google, she oversees a blue-sky lab at Facebook called Building 8. Her keynote speech last week at the company’s annual developer conference marked her public debut as a Facebooker. At Google, she worked on modular smartphones and ways of converting our immediate surroundings into 3D virtual worlds. At Facebook, she and her team are building, among other things, a computer interface for the human brain.
It was a powerful speech, especially when she showed a short video of a woman with Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS, who can already control a computer tablet keyboard with her thoughts. Later, Dugan extolled the importance of Facebook’s “terrifying” effort to build something that has never been built before. “Why do we sign up to be terrified each day?” she said. “That is the price we pay for the privilege of making something great.”
Time will tell whether Zuckerberg’s idea is technologically feasible, or whether having a computer read your thoughts is something the average consumer will want to adopt, but Zuckerberg declared this to be one of the areas of technological advancement he is most excited about.
Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
