One British sci-fi TV series that captures the anxious mix of fear and wonder that accompanies machine-human interfaces is Black Mirror. One episode in this series, titled “The Entire History of You” features a piece of technology called “Grain”. When implanted behind a human’s right ear, grain records a person’s first-hand visual and auditory experience and converts it into a chronological collection of watchable videos.
What if we could record every moment of every day from the time we were born by something that has been implanted in our brain? What if we could rewind and replay every single experience and every single social interaction that we have ever had?
Two avenues of current neurotech research, Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) and brain decoding, promise something close to the output of Black Mirror’s grain.
