Your Digital Self: Brain implants would make ‘The Matrix’ come to life

“The Matrix” is now 17 years old, but I still remember my jaw dropping when Neo interfaced with the Matrix for the first time and uploaded a kung-fu database directly to his brain.

Imagine what that could mean for education, or any profession where quick and timely access to specific sets of data is crucial. A doctor could take just milliseconds to “remember” a complex procedure during an emergency operation; a lawyer could have immediate access to an entire library of cases and precedents simply by thinking about them.
