Kernel – a new company, with an ambitious goal: to hack human intelligence (HI) and transform our brain into a programmable device that can be improved. By developing neuroprosthetics to bridge the gap between humankind and its tools, Kernel is already hard work building the solutions to marry human and artificial intelligence.
Kernell marries neuroscience with technological advancements in machine learning, microelectronics, and translational medicine — making it possible to enhance intelligence in ways we previously didn’t think possible, thus redefining the human brain.
Advancements in neuroscience have given us a deeper understanding of the brain, and furnished us with tools to reengineer it.
Increasingly capable of matching complementing and exceeding human abilities will make connecting HI and AI even more seamless.
Miniaturized electronics are making brain-implant technology increasingly powerful and less invasive.
Advances in neuromedicine allow us to diagnose the mechanical causes of neurological ailments, and to construct new devices to successfully treat them.
The symbiosis of human in artificial intelligence will unlock previously unimagined possibilities.
Sophisticated neuroprosthetics, made possible by leveraging advances in microelectronics and non-invasive surgery, may enable us to rewrite and redesign the very architecture of intelligence.
Neural augmentation may allow us to delete or alter our memories, store them in the cloud, or even google the entire record of our lives.
By understanding our neural code, we may be able to upgrade our intelligence and abilities by simply downloading new programs into our brains.
Co-evolving with Our Machines
Currently, we interact with our machines through low bandwidth and inefficient user interfaces. Soon, what “we” and our “computers” do may be indistinguishable.
Understanding the mechanics of neurology and parlaying this knowledge into neuroprosthetic devices, we may be able to treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as other dysfunctions such as depression and anxiety.
Chip In A Brain
Implantable “brain chips” will confer sensory enhancements, such as improved hearing and vision, for expanding our current biological limits.
A Brave New World
Enhanced intelligence, amplified creativity, and synthetic telepathy are a few things possible with this brave new partnership between HI and AI.
