A book I desperately need to read!

This book sounds like something that I need to read to brighten up my rather dismal view of the future that I have had for the past year or so.

Fred C. Ikle, one of America’s foremost strategic thinkers, in his latest book “Annihilation from Within” (Columbia University Press), sees the ever-faster advances in brain science and computers merging to build superhuman intelligence systems. Brain-computer-interface (BCI) research projects are proliferating among universities in the G-8 major industrial countries and China. And when this quest succeeds, Mr. Ikle says it will trump the latest supercomputers (already up to 73 trillion operations per second) and the best human experts.
