Yes, and I guess you can also develop a neuroprosthesis that could help drunk drivers pass DWI tests!! I notice articles like these only list the positive benefits.
While I agree that these types of stories overstate the positive (especially at KurzweilAI), for the sake of argument:
Wouldn’t this tech (by extension) allow a drunk driver not only to touch his nose with his eyes closed or say the alphabet backward, but to drive as if he were not intoxicated?
Granted, we don’t know whether motor-control areas of the brain could be prosthetically enhanced in the same way; I assume that they would, but that the neural feedback would be more complex and harder to model.
Thanks for the Comment!
