MBIs can transform industries and improve lives by directly connecting human brains to computers.

The article examines the relationship between privacy and MBIs in the context of the GDPR and closely examines surveillance risks posed by MBIs. The article also considers MBIs' ethicality and privacy as a human right. Thus, this essay examines the GDPR's current condition considering the the Brussels Effect and sustainability.
