DARPA TO CREATE MIND-CONTROLLED WEAPONS

BY DAGNY TAGGART
Last year, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced that it was seeking noninvasive ways “to achieve high levels of brain-system communications without surgery.” The techniques would “allow precise, high-quality connections to specific neurons or groups of neurons.”

The agency wants to create mind-controlled weapons of war, as it (vaguely) explained in two recent press releases.

To achieve this goal, DARPA recently formed a program called Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3).

DARPA WANTS SOLDIERS TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL MACHINES WITH THEIR MINDS.
According to a press release published on May 20, 2019, the agency has awarded funding to six companies to support N3:

Battelle Memorial Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Rice University, and Teledyne Scientific are leading multidisciplinary teams to develop high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces for use by able-bodied service members. These wearable interfaces could ultimately enable diverse national security applications such as control of active cyber defense systems and swarms of unmanned aerial vehicles, or teaming with computer systems to multitask during complex missions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, what could possibly go wrong with systems like that, except for everything?!?

I would counsel extreme caution in the development of this technology; there is so much room for so much to go completely haywire, that it is hard to know where to start evaluation of severe potential problems, both for the weapons,and the soldiers who use them.
