Should the government be trying to figure out if we are going to commit a crime in advance? It may sound like a situation as portrayed Via Minority Report. but the truth is that “pre-crime” technologies are being aggressively developed, and some have actually already been deployed.
In the future, authorities may not only be able to use pre-crime technology to read our minds, they might also be able to use technology to directly control our minds as well.
One of the most noteable current programs is known as FAST (Future Attribute Screening Technology). this pre-crime system is already so advanced that developers claim that it has about an 80% success rate.
Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) is a program created by the Department of Homeland Security. It was originally titled Project Hostile Intent. The purpose is to detect “Mal Intent” by screening people for “psychological and physiological indicators” in a “Mobile Screening Laboratory”.
The goal is to create a new technology that would be working in real time as opposed to after a crime is already committed. Perhaps you are reading this and you assume that the widespread implementation of such a system is still a long way off.
Well, if that is what you are thinking, you would be wrong. In fact, pre-crime cameras are already being installed at important transit locations in San Francisco.
As for Mind controlling the thoughts and actions of others, it sounds like complete science fiction doesn’t it? Well that kind of disturbing technology is already being developed
Researchers at Harvard University have created the first noninvasive brain-to-brain interface (BBI) between a human… and a rat. Simply by thinking the appropriate thought, the BBI allows the human to control the rat’s tail. This is one of the most important steps towards BBIs that allow for telepathic links between two or more humans .
Pre-crime and mind control technologies are already here and they will undoubtedly become far more advanced in the future.So how will governments around the world choose to use these technologies?
That is a frightening thing to think about.
