The U.S armed force wants to make superhumans who have enhanced senses, greater strength, and brain works like a computer. In short, they will be cyborg warriors. According to the Army Times, the pentagon envisions that these soldiers will be ready for battles in 2050. Back in October, the Department of Defense officially declared a plan to make a fusion of machine and human. With this ambition, it has finally brought an idea that is believed to exist in science fiction to reality.
The executive summary of the report pointed out four critical improvements to work on in the next 30 years. Two of them are upgrades in warriors’ ability to hear and see. Wearables will be equipped for soldiers to increase their strength.
The report concludes that these enhancements will make their abilities exceed those of normal people on the battlefields.
However, the key change here is the fourth upgrade. The U.S military plans to enhance soldiers’ neural abilities through a two-way transfer of data, meaning their brains will be wired to computers. This will allow for the instant distributing of new information. Another application is that soldiers can control uncrewed vehicles from afar with only their thoughts. Communication among soldiers will also be improved thanks to the new brain-to-brain interactions.
The improvements may give the U.S armed force and edge over their opponents in battles. However, it will pave the way for inequality and imbalances in building security, ethical, and legal frameworks.
Along with this cyborg soldier plan, the U.S military is also working on AI-controlled combat vehicles like tanks to identify and engage the enemies automatically.
