Vol. 1 When will computer hardware match the human brain? (Received Dec. 1997) Hans Moravec ABSTRACT This paper describes how the performance of AI machines tends to improve at the same pace that AI researchers get access to faster hardware. Brains, Eyes and Machines. 5 Bionic Exoskeleton Suits of the Future. Real Life Iron Man Suits As the old saying goes: the suit makes the man; never will this maxim resonate so well, than when referring to bionic exoskeleton suits.
They’ll not only make you the man, they’ll make you superhuman. Yes, picture this for a second. Imagine walking at an average speed of 20 miles an hour, lifting 300lbs weights as if they weighed only 10 and being able to leap 20-30 feet in the air. Optogenetics: A wireless, optical router for your brain. Ready for the Bleeding Edge Science Word of the Day?
Optogenetics. It’s even weirder than it sounds, too: optogenetics is the manipulation of a cell’s functions with light (usually lasers). Today, American startup Kendall Research has announced that it has made a wireless optogenetics device that the company’s founder calls “a wireless router for the brain.” To understand the importance of optogenetics, and to marvel at the magic of hooking your brain up to a network with a wireless router, we have to first look at how researchers currently investigate cell function, and thus just how groundbreakingly different the optogenetic approach is. Basically, as it stands, we have very limited control animal cells — especially brain cells. At the moment, the only real way to investigate animal cells is to knock out a function, usually by breeding a genetically engineered mutant. Human brain: fuse with computer chips biodigital brain.
U.S. Spies See Superhumans, Instant Cities by 2030. Artificial limbs like these could be only the beginning of man-machine interfaces, the National Intelligence Council predicts.

Perhaps that is why Sagawa Electronics is bridging the gap between fantasy and reality with a working robotic exoskeleton it calls the Power Jacket MK3 that mimics your every move. And it says it will produce up to five of them for about US$123,000 apiece. View all.
2045 Initiative. Initiative. Mankind has turned into a consumer society standing at the edge of a total loss of the conceptual guidelines necessary for further evolution.
The majority of people are almost exclusively absorbed in merely maintaining their own comfortable lives. Modern civilization, with its space stations, nuclear submarines, iPhones and Segways cannot save mankind from the limitations in the physical abilities of our bodies, nor from diseases and death. We are not satisfied with modern achievements of scientific and technical progress. Science working for the satisfaction of consumer needs will not be able to ensure a technological breakthrough towards a radically different way of life.

NATO experts warn that intelligent cyber weapons may get out of control. » CNN: Your Behavior Will Be Controlled by a Brain Chip Alex Jones. Smart phone will be implanted within 75 years Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com October 9, 2012 A new CNN article predicts that within 75 years people will have embedded microchips within their brain that will allow their behavior to be controlled by a third party.
The story, entitled Smartphone of the future will be in your brain, offers a semi-satirical look at transhumanism and the idea of humans becoming part cyborg by having communications devices implanted in their body. Electronic brain hacks are turning insects into robotic helpers. We're a long way from directly controlling human minds remotely, but recent years have seen a string of breakthroughs in hacking the minds of insects.
Insect brains are probably the simplest interesting brains, as insects can perform a range of tasks (flying, smelling, carrying, etc.) with brains that have numbers of neurons orders of magnitude less than those in complex vertebrates. A fruit fly has around 100,00 neurons, compared to 85 billion in humans. So at the conjunction of neuroscience and robotics lie insects -- their tiny brains still too complex to model completely, but offering an easy way into modelling certain parts of the brain. NSA Aquaint Artificial Intelligence. » Can you trust a new brain with an IQ of 7000? Alex Jones. Jon Rappoport Prison Planet.com February 17, 2013 I’ve been forcing myself to read gushing statements about the march of artificial intelligence (AI) and how, in the near future, we will have “the source code of the brain,” and computers will be able to do whatever the brain can do, except much, much faster.
