Abstract

This paper explores the prospect of brain implants as related to human activity and functioning. The researchers present information compiled through popular data collection using specific keywords related to brain implantation. The study calls into question and discusses the harm that could result if a negligent populace receives brain implants to 'merge' with artificial intelligence through brain computer interfaces. Its intent is to raise awareness of the risks that brain implantation imposes on an individual's health, wellbeing and livelihood.
