[SD] Researchers Grow a Brain In a Dish. - Page 6

post #51 of 97
Time Magazine: 2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal

If you got the actual issue, a graph stated that in ~2015 computers will equal brain power of a rat. ~2025 was the nearing of human level, if I recall correctly.

I highly suggest you check out Timothy Leary's "How To Operate Your Brain"

It'll take you to a whole new level

Hahaha, well anything by Timothy Leary is fantastic. He was a brilliant psychologist.
Actually, I consider him the go-to authority on the brain.

Wow, this is truly incredible. Imagine if they could develop this process enough to help repair the damaged areas of peoples' brains. And make organic computers. That'd be cool too.

Ya, digital computers are great number crunchers, though some problems are solved much faster with analog systems. A biological computer probably won't compete with digital logic in terms of calculation rate, but the adaptive quality of something like a neural network works well for complex tasks like pattern recognition.

Particularly Alzheimer's and other degenerative diseases which we do not fully comprehend yet.

This research could also open the doorway to understanding the bio-electrical nature of the human brain, and push us into the direction of science fiction with instant learning such as that from The Matrix series. Internet connectivity linked to the human brain? What about increasing your memory capability by buying a new Corsair memory pack and plugging it into your noggin' like from Johnny Mnemonic? The possibilities are endless.

Interesting stuff, but I hope they do tread these new waters with care.
I lol'd I'm sure Corsair would love to be thought of as a company that would sell that in the future. Don't they have a rep here?
