Don’t miss Horizon CDT PhD candidate Angela Thornton as she investigates a hypothetical futuristic world where brains can be emulated, augmented and uploaded in From Memory to Mind Uploading.
In this free talk – being held online on Thursday, 15 December 2022, 6-7 pm – Angela will share her PhD journey which uses innovative tools and techniques to explore a hypothetical futuristic world. In this scenario we can create an artificial brain (via whole brain emulation) and potentially augment or even upload our brains and minds to a different platform such as a supercomputer. While mind uploading has been widely depicted in popular media such as Black Mirror (Brooker, Jones & Reisz, 2011-2019) and Amazon’s Upload (Daniels & Klein, 2020 -), scientific and technological innovations such as mapping neuronal connections, high resolution imaging and growth in nanoscience and computing, as well as advances in neuroprosthetics and Brain: Computer Interfaces (BCI), means that it may become a reality in the far future.
