Here’s video of my Le Web Paris talk, on Linking Human Minds. This is all about the current science of sending sights, sounds, and sensations in and out of human brains, and the frontiers of augmenting and transferring memory and intelligence. Le Web did a fantastic job producing this. I love the split-screen showing me speaking and the slides at the same time.
The talk itself is a compilation of the very real science that I used in my novels Nexus (one of NPR’s Best Books of 2013) and Crux.
You can read fictionalized accounts of the uses and mis-uses of these technologies in the novels. (Along with a non-fiction appendix at the back of each with more on the science.):
