This post is part of a series on Mind Retrieval that we started long time ago back in 2010. Links to previous posts can be found here:
The Internet can be thought of as a network of nodes where each node has an assigned IP address. The Web and Deep Web are subsets of this. Traversing these nodes is done with crawlers. To retrieve the information that flows across them is what we know as information retrieval. The information might consists of data, text, sound, images. The text might convey numbers, words, phrases, topics, ideas, theses…
Now if the nodes are human brains, the information extraction from the part of the brain responsible of thoughts, emotions, senses, can be loosely termed Mind Retrieval.
So Mind Retrieval requires communications between nodes (brains). The BrainNet Project represents one step closer toward this direction. Here is an interesting link (http://info.247apk.com/brainnet-can-have-three-brains-talk-to-each-other/) where three human brains were “connected” to accomplish specific tasks.
Imagine a large scale project where the brightest minds can interact to take on bigger tasks or solve important scientific and practical problems. Imagine artificial brains (bot brains) doing the same.
When I started this series years ago, many did not believe in the idea of mind retrieval, teasing it as mere speculations.
I guess they have been retracted since then. Mind Retrieval and brain-to-brain social networks are at a corner near you, along with peripherals: browsers, reprogramming, adverts, teleports, hacks, etc.
