Perhaps a few hundred years late to be an original explorer, but maybe I can be explorer 2.0!
What is it I came here to do? Not look at silly pictures of people's dogs or kids all day that’s for sure. But the money is insane, always the money..
This desire to share, to communicate is what interests me…
But now it creeps back, the memories, everything I have read or seen so mixed up I cant tell what was mine or somebody else’s stolen dreams and memories that fill me up and drive me crazy, still I should be used to this. I find ways of dimming the voices but they are impermanent and short lived, often followed by a cursed hangover.
The world has always craved connectivity. Walls connect as do roads. The first digital connections came underwater in the 19th century when we laid the first telegraphic cabling across the Atlantic. Ones and zeros. The telegraph, same technology as the apps we use today. The world is covered in cabling, fibre optics, bandwidth. The ownership of this cabling and not the information it carries is where the money is!
At some point Memorize will have to control the means of delivery, the infrastructure that will need to be created in order to deliver our products. Information, much less knowledge, doesn’t transmit itself through thin air, well it does, but not for nothing! This is for me the real 2.0 thinking.
Check out this article from MRC cognition brain sciences unit at Cambridge. Yeah I hacked it.
It's amazing. They talked to a patient in a coma using magnetic imaging scans, measuring the surge of bloodflow that accompanies neural activity. Now that's proper data mining.
New England Journal of Medicine wrote about it a few months ago, but they remarked on the electrical signatures that accompany same neural activity. If you could correlate both then communication becomes mappable…
Expensive but worth it. Can’t wait to test the software.
Very slow work as software and device is very rudimentary. Yes, no, good, bad, funny sad... and that took two hours, cross checking, recording fifty readings within a micron of similarity before moving on and then feeding in a randomised control question. Basically took all night.
If we take the minute but readable heat changes that take place with thought I can make an app that communicates simple colour coded messages directly from the brain. A mind reading app basically, little more than a tarot reading gimmick at this point, but the possibilities...
Via electricity, or even vibrating frequency, giving grammar to our heat and temperature readings.
The more these develop the bigger our language will get; we grow exponentially with this technology, but for now we have limited control over it.
There is no fear of dissolving who we are, of our information being mined, for this mining creates further ways for us to connect. Knowledge is power, but what we have here is just information. This is just foreplay, just a taste of what comes next. Our mind map, the connections we make, our neural social network, turns this information into knowledge, a deeper understanding of our desires and connections.
Information mining is all surface. Mining knowledge operates at a much deeper level, and the seams of data it mines are therefore that much richer. Today we have sur-facebook, tomorrow Memorize!
I can fit the sensor inside and it will look just like a normal ring, all silver reflections and sci-fi angles. Very cool but temperamental, so I'm sticking with the headset for now. In the future I can imagine implants, but that's inhumane, right?
Currently making great strides in my research with my Emotiv EPOC™ headset.
My memory of sweet things flashes (via heat/moisture recognition pads) crème brûlée and pain au chocolat. The geotagged database on my computer suggests three local outlets for these products. Simple and crass it may be, but this is the beginning. From hunger to taste to product all through mapping of brain function..the road ahead is mind boggling!
It could match up desire with desire, cancel fear with happiness. It would be like Linear programming for emotion, for the soul!
