How to Build the Post-Human Brain
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.
