Importing knowledge to the brain could actually take as small effort as the Matrix movie knowledge transfer exhibited during the sleep.
Researchers from HRL Laboratories, based in California claim to have developed a system, a simulator which can feed information directly into a person’s brain. The simulator will also teach people new skills in a very short amount of time.
Scientists believe this is the 1st step towards developing a robust software that will work exactly like Matrix movie knowledge transfer going to sleep thing.
“Our system is one of the first of its kind. It’s a brain stimulation system,” explained Dr Matthew Phillips.
“It sounds kind of sci-fi, but there’s large scientific basis for the development of our system.
“The specific task we were looking at was piloting an aircraft, which requires a synergy of both cognitive and motor performance.
“It turns out that certain functions of the brain, like speech and memory, are located in very specific regions of the brain, about the size of your pinky.”
Dr. Matthews believes that brain stimulation could eventually be used to transfer knowledge for important tasks such as learning to drive, exam preparation or perhaps language learning.
“What our system does is it actually targets those changes to specific regions of the brain as you learn,” he added.
Soon learning would be as easy as downloading an App.
