  •  I think it is cool! (0+ / 0-)

    By trying to build brains we get to understand even more how our own brains work. We have been doing this for eons (usually by observing behavior related to events) but now we can really start to understand.

    There is always a potential for misuse, but I would argue we are already subject to massive amounts of misuse (by corporations and advertisers to name a few), so how can it get much worse.

    The cool stuff out of the Canadian project is that their brain seems to have similar problems to our own brain - for example it is better at remembering the beginning and end of lists and less so of the middle. That is cool!

    There's room at the top they're telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill
