New technologies are opening the door to near-everlasting life as well as a myriad of ethical and philosophical questions. Technologists are working on a variety of ways to avoid death — including uploading your brain to a computer. Entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and beyond are attempting to disrupt what has long been seen as one […]

MIT researchers have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud. The system consists of a wearable device and an associated computing system. Electrodes in the device pick up neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face that are triggered by internal verbalizations — saying […]
No more secrets! New mind-reading machine can translate your thoughts and display them as text INSTANTLY
Researchers say they have developed a machine that can translate our thoughts The astonishing machine will analyse what you are thinking and display it as text Scientists hope that the machine can be used by people who are unable to speak
Israel-based BrainQ is a new neurotech startup hoping to take on brain-computer interface (BCI) companies like Braintree founder Bryan Johnson’s Kernel and Silicon Valley billionaire Elon Musk’s Neuralink.
By triggering precisely timed pulses of electricity to the brain, researchers can essentially use one black box to unlock the potential of another.
In Altered Carbon, the body no longer matters. As one character quipped: “You shed it like a snake sheds its skin.” That’s because the human consciousness has been digitized, and can be moved between bodies—both real and synthetic.
Think that human augmentation is still decades away? Think again.
The greatest unfair competitive advantage for your small business is leveraging this critical shift in how you view the drivers of the future.
The trouble with the future is that it never seems to arrive. That’s why we call it the future. We consequently have this bad habit of taking the present, and all the wondrous and horrific things it has to offer, for granted. As a reminder that we’re actually living in the future of a not-so-distant […]
Machines have been displacing humans on job tasks for several centuries, and for seventy years many of these machines have been controlled by computers.
