There is a great deal of research going on in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) merging with the brain.
Exuberant cheerleaders like Roy Kurzweil are quite confident that we are approaching a moment when a computer will exhibit all the power of the human brain.
The definition of “power” in this context is fuzzy. But Kurzweil and others are sure we’re about to uncover the “algorithm” that underlies all brain activity.
They couldn’t be more wrong. Neuroscience has barely scratched the surface of understanding how the brain operates. Cracking the code is not on the horizon.
This fact reflects a much deeper problem. PR is not science. Predictions about what is imminent are not the same thing as verified research results.
