Keeping up with the machines - NZ Herald

Putting a computer in your brain is no longer science fiction

Technology entrepreneur Bryan Johnson sees a future in which intelligent machines can do things like drive cars on their own and anticipate our needs before we ask.

What's uncommon is how Johnson wants to respond: Find a way to supercharge the human brain so that we can keep up with the machines.

From an unassuming office in Venice Beach, his science fiction-meets-science start-up, KerNEL, is building a tiny chip that can be implanted in the brain to help people suffering from neurological damage caused by strokes, Alzheimer's, or concussions.

The team of top neuroscientists building the chip - they call it a neuroprosthetic - hope that in the longer term, it will be able to boost intelligence, memory, and other cognitive tasks.
