Elephants will no longer be the only ones that never forget

Elephants will no longer be the only ones that never forget


DARPA, because of the US Department of Defence, is working on a black box brain implant. A implant that will be wired into a soldier’s brain and record their memories.


If a soldier happens to suffer memory loss due to brain injury, the implant can then be used to restore those memories.


The project, which DARPA has named Restoring Active Memory, is presently at the stage where it’s looking for proposals from commercial companies who in the past had success with brain implants, like Medtronic.


They need to be able to actually analyse and decode a human’s neural signals. Work has been done in this area, such as brute-forcing the encoding of the optic nerve, but they are a long way away from reading groups of neural spikes.
