Perceptive Teleportation

“Beam me up Scotty”, some of you might remember this catchphrase from Star Trek where teleportation was a convenient “commodity” to move people from a planet to the the Enterprise space ship. If you take a look at the “technology” that was imagined at that time (and it was a …

Transhumanism: Evolving Human Behaviour

I am no sociologist at all but as we are considering technology evolution and their impact in the Symbiotic Autonomous Systems Initiative, the societal aspects are clearly important. These are issues that will be discussed both at the Workshop on SAS preceding the TTM 2018 conference to be held in …

Transhumanism: Increasing Human Thought Capabilities VI

Providing more resilience to the thinking activity (including more focus) Thinking activity, as any other brain process, is the result of the activation/deactivation of millions, billions neurones and synapses. In turns, these activation/deactivation is influenced by several chemical substances floating in the brain. Improving thinking activity therefore can be pursued …

Transhumanism: Increasing Human Thought Capabilities II

The increase of thinking capabilities can be pursued by: “engineering” a better “brain” (pretty though, since we do not know yet how it works nor how the genome is shaping it …) Improving processing capabilities through focused stimulation better exploiting its capabilities, including establishing better connection with it, feeding more pertinent …

Magnetoencephalography goes on the move

In the quest to unravel the working of the brain scientists are using several kind of “sensors” to see how the brain works. Magnetoencephalography, an approach developed in the last century (1968), allows medical doctors and researchers to watch the brain electrical activity by sensing the magnetic field generated by …
