The connections that occur in the brain and between people might just change the world.

The Future of Memory

San Francisco, CA
An evening on the Future of Memory. What is human memory? How is it optimized? If we store everything, why can't we retrieve everything? If we could retrieve everything, hwo would that change learning? Will your memories and identity survive the death of your physical body? What if we could share our memories with another, take them into our brain? What are the failure points in memory, and are there imminent cures? Can we improve our own memory? With all the data being generated and shared, what is the future of technical storage and retrieval? What happens when we go from ones and zeros to biological computing? How will you retrieve information stored in dead applications? What is being done to save the key intelligence and knowledge of humanity in the event of a mass technical failure?

What is human memory?  How is it optimized?  If we store everything, why can't we retrieve everything? If we could retrieve everything, hwo would that change learning? Will your memories and identity survive the death of your physical body? What if we could share our memories with another, take them into our brain?  What are the failure points in memory, and are there imminent cures?  Can we improve our own memory?  

With all the data being generated and shared, what is the future of technical storage and retrieval?  What happens when we go from ones and zeros to biological computing?  How will you retrieve information stored in dead applications? What is being done to save the key intelligence and knowledge of humanity in the event of a mass technical failure?
