Forward-leaning scientists and researchers say advancements in society's computers and biotechnology will go straight to our heads — literally.

In a new paper published in the Frontiers in Neuroscience, researchers embarked on an international collaboration that predicts groundbreaking developments in the world of 'Human Brain/Cloud Interface's' within the next few decades.

Combination - Nanotechnology - Intelligence - Computing - Researchers

Using a combination of nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and other more traditional computing, researchers say humans will be able to seamlessly connect their brains to a cloud of computers to glean information from the internet in real-time.

According to Robert Freitas Jr., senior author of the research, a fleet of nanobots embedded in our brains would act as liaisons to humans' minds and supercomputers, to enable 'matrix style' downloading of information.

Devices - Vasculature - Barrier - Brain - Cells

'These devices would navigate the human vasculature, cross the blood-brain barrier, and precisely autoposition themselves among, or even within brain cells,' explains Freitas.

'They would then wirelessly transmit encoded information to and from a cloud-based supercomputer network for real-time brain-state monitoring and data extraction.'

Interfaces - Humans - Computers - Researchers - Network

The interfaces wouldn't just stop at linking humans and computers, say researchers. A network of brains could also help form what they call a 'global superbrain' that would allow for collective thought.

In recent experiments, researchers have already demonstrated the capability to conjoin human brains in collective tasks in what they call BrainNet.
