You Might Never Upload Your Brain Into a Computer

You Might Never Upload Your Brain Into a Computer | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it
Many futurists predict that one day we'll upload our minds into computers, where we'll romp around in virtual reality environments. That's possible -- but there are still a number of thorny issues to consider.

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come | ExtremeTech

Google invents smart contact lens with built-in camera: Superhuman Terminator-like vision here we come | ExtremeTech | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it
Google has invented a new smart contact lens with an integrated camera. By virtue of being part of the contact lens, the camera would naturally follow your gaze, allowing for a huge range of awesome applications, from the basis of a bionic eye system for blind and visually impaired people, through to early warning systems (the camera spots a hazard before your brain does), facial recognition, and superhuman powers (telescopic and infrared/night vision). In related news, Google Glass is publicly available today in the US for one day only (still priced at $1500).

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 7, 1:45 PM

"On peut considérer cette expérience comme réelle au sens où la patiente l’expérimente, son cerveau prouve qu’il s’agit de sensations tangibles pour elle. Les scanners cérébraux démontrent que ce qu’elle prétend ressentir est effectivement induit par son cerveau. En revanche, cela ne signifie pas que son ‘âme’ est sortie de son corps. Ce n’est pas un voyage astral comme décrit par les mystiques. Il n’y a pas d’activité paranormale, c’est même parfaitement empirique.

Avant, les scientifiques pensaient que ces expériences hors du corps étaient un type d’hallucination provoquée par un mécanisme neurologique. Il s’avère que ledit mécanisme est présent chez le tout-un-chacun et qu’il suffit de se former à l’activité pour pouvoir planer."

Turing’s theory of morphogenesis validated 60 years after his death | BrandeisNOW | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it
Alan Turing’s accomplishments in computer science are well known, but lesser known is his impact on biology and chemistry. In his only published paper on biology, Turing proposed a theory of morphogenesis, the process by which identical cells differentiate, for example, into an organism with arms and legs, a head and tail.

A monkey that controls a robot with its thoughts. No, really. | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it
Can we use our brains to directly control machines -- without requiring a body as the middleman? Miguel Nicolelis talks through an astonishing experiment, in which a clever monkey in the US learns to control a monkey avatar, and then a robot arm in Japan, purely with its thoughts. The research has big implications for quadraplegic people -- and maybe for all of us. (Filmed at TEDMED 2012.)

How to Build the Post-Human Brain

How to Build the Post-Human Brain | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it

By 2040, humans just might be nearly indestructible, according to Ray Kurzweil and some of the world’s top scientists. Advances in technology and medicine will obliterate the maladies of today, and make life expectancy rates skyrocket. As humankind transcends physical pains and we live longer lives, the question remains: is our brain equipped to deal with an infinite lifetime of memories? And if not, then what happens to the way we remember our lives? Will we be able to download our thoughts and memories somehow? And where, then, does machine end and human begin? Join a discussion of futurists who live and work at the convergence of technology, memories, and science.
