UC Berkeley predicts Human Brain/Cloud Interface
Human Brain/Cloud Interface (B/CI) will connect brain cells to cloud-computing networks.
Enabled by exponential progress in nanotechnology, nanomedicine, AI, and computation.
Communications, education, work, and the world as we know it would be transformed.
Neural nanorobots would provide direct, real-time monitoring and control of signals to and from brain cells.
Global superbrain could connect networks of individual human brains and AIs.
Basic BrainNet system has already been tested.
Existing supercomputers have processing speeds capable of handling the necessary volumes of neural data.
Magnetoelectric nanoparticles to amplify communication has already been tested in mice.
Research by UC Berkeley and the US Institute for Molecular Manufacturing published in Frontiers in Neuroscience.
