(名詞) 神經安全性:神經裝置 (neural devices) 的安全措施和通訊協定 (protocols)。

由於神經裝置的問世,人類得以透過神經介面 (neural interface) 用思想操作電腦、控制輪椅及其他機器,但這些裝置在設計之初並未考慮到安全性問題,因此越來越多的科學家擔心神經裝置,或更廣義地說人腦,可能成為駭客下一個攻擊的目標。他們呼籲安全專家和相關人士正視神經裝置領域的潛在安全問題,未雨綢繆,以使「人腦被入侵」的可能性降至最低。

Despite the risks, Kohno said, most new devices aren't created with security in mind. Neural engineers carefully consider the safety and reliability of new equipment, and neuroethicists focus on whether a new device fits ethical guidelines. But until now, few groups have considered how neural devices might be hijacked to perform unintended actions. This is the first time an academic paper has addressed the topic of "neurosecurity," a term the group coined to describe their field.
