Pentagon’s think tank, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is funding efforts to create technologies that result in “merging minds and machines.” The most dramatic are brain chips, arrays of electrodes that, when implanted in the brain, can receive electrical signals from and send them to neural tissue, aimed at creating neurally “enhanced” soldiers.

In principle, brain chips could boost soldiers’ cognitive and physical functions. Soldiers could control complex weapons systems with their thoughts, communicate telepathically with other soldiers and upload large databases instantly. In principle, minds containing brain chips can also be read and controlled by others.
