UPLOADING MEMORIES: WILL THERE BE A WAY TO REPLICATE PEOPLE’S EXISTENCE

“Uploading Memory.”


saved data

A day will come where all of our memories will be able to be accessed and used to keep an aspect of us going throughout society. Meaning a Stephen Hawking brain could really benefit the world after he is dead with holding on to his intellect. That would mean technology to scale from the likes our planet has never seen. Accessing all the data of the mind of some of our smartest so that we can have an advantage as a nation. And with so much brain power, what could a nation do with such information for its infrastructure?

opportunities

A Henry Ford comes along and is born into this country. Or better yet a Steve Jobs is born and we want his mind to continue. Imagine if we could have kept everything that Jobs did and managed to keep Apple going the same as if he had never left. You’re talking technology rolling out year after year from the vault of Jobs. And since we have everything he wrote down, we could compile this information to build his ideas the same way he would have built them. The uncertainty of where a company is heading after someone as important as him dies wouldn’t be lingering over the heads of the organization’s leaders. But is there a more sinister aspect of the technology?

sick twisted system

Manipulation is the main reason why something like this will be halted for a very long time. You would need a large scale oversight into the matter because not everyone is born equal. Some people just have that thing others don’t. So can you imagine a mundane thinker accessing the data of a genius and building their own futures off the backs of someone else. Or better yet, our government laying claim to the mind of this person for their own benefit. That means your family member that died is now property of the government to be used however they please. And who is to also say that someone won’t try to kill you for your mind. Because you are now worth more dead than alive.

reality is reality

This will be something of the future, but in a different context. I don’t know hat the context will be, but the information of people will be left behind because we document so much today. And it will be for more research purposes if anything.

LOST INTENTIONS: WHY THE TELEVISION LOST ITS ORIGINAL USE

cinema, dark, display

“Really, used for learning.”


the television

When the television was first invented, it was designed to be used as a tool to educate the public. Now, the television is used as a medium to entertain people. Image result for first tvAnd for the longest, the entertainment came from the radio. So how and why did it change over time? Because I think the television can still be used as an educational tool, but we choose not to use it for such method.

what have we learned

Once we realized in society that we could use not only language, but the imagery coming from the television as a means to push an agenda, that is when television transformed. Because now you have a way to dramatically play out what it is you have to say. Before on radio, you had to conjure up your own image, which forced people to have a creative mind.

But today, television doesn’t make you think anymore. And that comes from having to compete with the internet. So now, the television is more so built around who can get information out there the fastest, not necessarily who can educate the public. Yet, the public ourselves can still be educated, but choose not to. Then again, what is real and fake anymore in our society.

the new television

What’s interesting about the television’s original use, is that it still exist, but on the internet. And it exist on the YouTube website. That’s right, YouTube is not only a website where we listen to music and watch entertaining content, but there are also tutorials to learn trades. Anything you want to learn, someone has a YouTube channel dedicated to teaching you.

Doesn’t matter if it’s woodcarving, painting, or even learning mathematics, someone has a video for it. This would be a case of the television innovated from what it was in it’s origins.

what next

With the continuous innovation of the AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) capabilities what will be the next tool for learning. Because these headsets are already trying to make their way into schools across the country. Image result for ar and vrBut eventually, they will prove to be a problem as well. And then, we’re going to have to continue past this point as well.
