We convene. For laughter, human connection, and the sheer power of ideas, whether they be brilliant, absurd, undoable, or all three in one sentence. How do we live our best lives today, and how do we move into the future with our eyes wide open? Join in our community of the world’s leading influencers. The connections that occur in the brain and between people might just change the world.
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?
