What’s the connection between the brain and Web sites? The brain has networks of neurons that form a semantic network of memories, and the Internet has a World Wide Web of Web sites. Web sites are the software of the Internet, just as memories are the software of the mind.

What’s interesting is that the Web is growing far faster than is the evolution of the human brain.

Will the internet become conscious?

Will the internet become conscious? | The brain and the internet | Scoop.it

The internet is a new lifeform that shows the first signs of intelligence. So says brain scientist and serial entrepreneur Jeff Stibel.He argues that the physical wiring of the internet is much like a rudimentary brain and some of the actions and interactions that take place on it are similar to the processes that we see in the brain. At the same time, he says, it is forcing us as humans to interact and think in new and different ways. But, he tells BBC Future, this is just the beginning. The internet is only going to become more and more intelligent, changing humans and society in ways which we are not yet able to understand.
