@stman some of my classmates presented a project in class about an AI-assisted fighter jet squadron. Presumably because the US military cannot attract enough pilots anymore, they want a system where one pilot controls multiple planes in orchestration.

That sort of technology sounds like the perfect candidate to be combined with this brain-computer interface garbage.


@stman I thought it's to justify their continued careers? There's also the pissing contest and what would be "cool!" The F-35 is a great example. The "Well, There's Your Problem" podcast should do an episode on that engineering disaster!

The National Academy of Engineering has a list of Grand Engineering Challenges and "reverse-engineering the brain" is one of them. This instrumentarian power cannot be given to corporations/governments, but scientists are happy to do the work!
