From Pinplants to the Terminal Man: Can Science Build the Better Humans Envisioned by SF?
Brain implants are a common feature of Science Fiction. Science is rapidly catching up with Science Fiction in developing computer interfaces, connection with robotic limbs, and the means to treat disorders of the brain. Science Fiction still holds the high ground with respect to downloading memories and developing hybrid human-computer AIs and cyborgs; but Science is closing in with prosthetics and transcranial stimulation to treat a number of disorders. What is fact? What is (still) fiction? Where can science and science fiction go from here? Dr. Robert Hampson moderates.
