Today’s Daily Post was “A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?” Coincidentally, I was watching a TED talk this morning on how close to mind reading chips we are. The synchronicity was too strong not to share it.
As for whether I would take the chip?
I probably would. Some studies have shown people have a tendency to impute malice where there is only accident. While I try to avoid assumptions it would be useful to have more information.
Also, a brain chip! I would be proper cyberpunk with one of those.
