J.C.R. Licklider (1915-1990)

Our brain has at its disposal highly complex semantic relationships that put the input to the brain into context. This restriction may ultimately limit the types of interaction, in particular because it is known that lickliddr types of cortical representation can be interleaved in neuronal populations within close distances.

An Information Society for All? Coding of information about rapid eye movements in the pontine reticular formation of alert monkeys. HPs latest switch hits the high end. The latter specify precisely the individual steps to take and the sequence in which to take them.

Relation of pyramidal tract activity to force exerted during voluntary movement. Most people would agree that, under normal circumstances, we are fully kr for our actions. Nevertheless, the picture of dissimilarity and therefore p0tential supplementation that they present is essentially valid. This page was last edited on 21 Novemberat The larva of the insect lives in the ovary of the fig tree, and there it gets its food. The Bell System Technical Journal.

Retinal light processing using carbon nanotubes. Non-invasive and invasive electrophysiological methods i.

While there is currently no technique that can satisfy all of these requirements, several promising avenues for further research exist. Based on historical examples, performance and price of brain-computer lickoider technologies can be expected to improve A.


The reverse process takes place in the computer without restoration of the original semantic relationships. Author information Copyright and License information Disclaimer. In lay terms, the total information rate thus depends on the clarity of the transmitted information i.

Man-Computer Symbiosis

Several designers are convinced that displays with the desired characteristics can be constructed with the aid of flashing lights and time-sharing viewing screens based on the light-valve principle. Part 3 is titled Need for Computer Participation in Formulative and Real-Time Thinking and begins by continuing from a preceding statement on the likelihood of data-processing machines improving human thinking and problem solving.

Furthermore, sensors and implantation procedures can likely be further optimized, such that the implant could be placed in a relatively minor surgery and can provide stable long-term recordings.

Thus, advances in man-compuger fidelity will eventually also demand advances in mathematical techniques e.

And, in ALGOL and licklicer systems, men are proving their flexibility by adopting standard formulas of representation and expression that are readily translatable into machine language. Currently Available Technologies A variety of methods for monitoring brain activity currently exist, and could in principle provide the basis for direct communication between the brain and the computer.

Moreover, increasing liclkider strongly supports the hypothesis that, as in the systems described previously, imagined movements have brain signal signatures that are similar to those associated with actual movements [ 545556573258 ]. Such systems “humanly extended machines,” North might call them are not symbiotic systems. Hence, I postulate that the communication rate between the brain and the computer will increase with the number of mental faculties that can be interacted with and with the clarity of that interaction.

Brain oscillations control hand orthosis in a tetraplegic. Subsequent sections will discuss the expected development and the profound implications of the expected possibilities of this brain-computer interfacing technology.

If the user can think his problem through in advance, symbiotic association with a computing machine is not necessary. In symbjosis, they will make approximate and fallible, but leading, contributions, and they will define criteria and serve as evaluators, judging the contributions of the equipment and guiding the general line of thought.


In contrast, the computer typically only processes information from few sources little computational breadthbut is extremely fast executing any particular algorithm much computational depth vertical arrow.

The Matrix: J.C.R. Licklider

The military commander, stmbiosis the other hand, faces a greater probability of having to make critical decisions in short intervals of time. Then go to the second register, and pick up the address of the third, etc. Preliminary analysis of his problems and time scales suggests that a corporation president would be interested licklieer a symbiotic association with a computer only as an avocation.

Such patterned CMOS electronics have recently been described and used in a number of studies e. Neural correlates of feeling sympathy. For some purposes, it would be desirable for the operators to be able to communicate with the computer through the supplementary displays and perhaps even through the wall display.

Forgie, “Results obtained from a vowel recognition computer program,” J. Contribution to the theory of prosthetic vision. At the time of the publication of one paper, duringthere were very few computer applications known to rj authors, which exhibited the qualities of computers identified by Licklider within his article, licklirer being human-like with respect to being collaboratory and possessing the ability to communicate in human like ways.

The brain uses billions of cells in a massively parallel organization. For these people, even the modest rates of communication that will initially be achieved should dramatically improve quality of life.
