Scientists have discovered bio-synthetic material, which they are calling Pedot, that reportedly merges AI with the human brain.
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming an AI robot, or maybe thought the Matrix was more than a dystopian fantasy but rather a look into the future, then your time may have come.
Scientists at the American Chemical Society Fall 2020 presented their groundbreaking findings yesterday, marking a considerable advancement towards integrating electronics with the human body.
The study, led by Dr David Martin, claimed that the idea for the project which led to the discovery came from the team “trying to interface rigid organic microelectrodes with the brain“, as reported by The Independent.
When that didn’t work, they began exploring alternatives, “looking at organic electronic materials like conjugated polymers that were being used in non-biological devices.”
It was here that the team found a “chemically stable example that was sold commercially as an antistatic coating for electronic displays.”
Historically, there have been issues connecting human tissue to electronics because certain materials cause scarring that interrupts electrical signals between the AI software and brain tissue.
However, Pedot has the properties needed to connect electronic hardware with human tissue without causing scarring, while also dramatically improving the performance of medical implants.
Martin says that one day, he hopes to tailor the way these materials deposit on a surface, then implant them in tissue in a living organism. So prepare yourselves, part-cyborg humans may be coming sooner than we realise.
