Memory implants, as seen in ‘Black Mirror’, could soon be a reality!
Six years after the episode ‘The Entire History of You’ aired, it has been revealed that humans could potentially have the ability to record their memories.
Tom Gruber, co-founder of Siri and an Apple executive, explained at the recent TED 2017 conference that there is a vision for technology to record events in our life.
Speaking in Canada, he revealed that:
I believe A.I. will make personal memory enhancement a reality. I think it’s inevitable.
Gruber has backing from many fellow visionaries, none more so than Elon Musk. Musk has launched a ‘telepathy’ start-up named Neuralink, which aims to implant brain electrodes that may eventually upload and download thoughts.
This would be yet another spookily accurate prediction from the hit show. What a world it would be though!
It’s a fascinating thought, but arguably one that is still very much in the thinking process. It will unquestionably be a number of years before we see such a remarkable feat.
