ETHICAL-LEGAL LIMITS OF NEUROSCIENCE/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE INTERFACE ADVANCES

Driven by the parallel advancement of artificial intelligence, neuroscience has been developing at a proportion and velocity that surprise even the scientists dedicated to its study. There is no doubt about the benefits of this advance for humanity, although it is also necessary to recognize its harm, which requires a broad, open, and in-depth debate on its potential to violate human dignity. The speed with which these advances have been taking place has, however, conspired against the realization of these debates, preventing reflections that match their implications, and, consequently, hindering the formulation of ethical-legal contours capable of safeguarding human dignity in the face of possible deviations or abuses. In this context, this research aims to contribute to the formulation of ethical-legal parameters for the application of the neuroscience/artificial intelligence interface, in order to protect the recently called neurohuman rights, whose core is the protection of dignity
