Obsessed with our gray matter

Recently I have been reading a lot of IEEE spectrum. Another article on mapping human consciousness and selectively adding or removing it. The future seems to be thrilling, but I feel something slippery about the path taken by humans.

If we reverse engineer the brain and create a machine with the functionality of the brain, we might needs to create a way to stop it from going against us.

At this I remember King Arthur's farewell,
"The future seems dark and dreary" ...

20 years from now, you call 911 .... and the answer is something like "Sir, this is your Robo-Cop speaking ... How can I help you" ... And you say, sigh !!! "I just want to talk someone human ..."
