Michio Kaku - Brain Net will replace the Internet

Michio Kaku - Brain Net will replace the Internet

(3:54) Yet again, the foreseeable future is science fiction. Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku talks about brain-to-brain communication; connecting computers to living minds.

Latest comment: I'm surprised that Michio Kaku seems to imply that we'll never make a self-aware computer. Whatever self-awareness/consciousn ess is, whether it is created inside our brain, or if it's something external that we 'plug' into, or whatever else you care to imagine, it evolved. Humans are self-aware, chimps probably, mice maybe, flies probably not. The point is that at some time in the past, there were no animals that displayed self-awareness, and now there are. Evolution did it in a few billion years, I think we'll do it in a few hundred. Science is like evolution on hyper-steroids; super-efficient proactive selection rather than super-slow natural selection. I think it's only that we don't yet understand the laws of physics deeply enough that prevents us from creating a self-aware machine.

What's the difference between linking brains and talking?
