In this millennium, we are witnessing the greatest scientific and technological revolution of all times and we are confronting ourselves with an unprecedented debate about Brain Regeneration, Artificial Intelligence and Neuroprosthesesz for brain function restoration and enhancement.

We understand the brain better and better, but there still is a lot to discover ( Uploading your mind )

With Carlo Ierna, historian of philosophy at Radboud University we have been making a journey across some history at the origins of contemporary technology, recent disruptive news about brain chip implant and robots replacing humans.

The articles draw the attention of the scientific community as well as the general audience to different topics and arising questions about uploading and downloading consciousness, whether it is possible to transfer information directly from one brain to another over the internet…

…the relation between body and mind, and mind and behavior.

We have been investigating the origin of AI

A machine that could think like a person has been the guiding vision of AI research since the earliest days

Things that Think

What do we mean by “thinking”? What are the technical requirements on the machine? Does it need to process information in the same way that humans do? Massively parallel, biochemically, etc. like a human brain?

We analyzed the relation between

Robot and Humans

About the relation between body and mind, and the brain and the identity

Can we read and write brain signals wirelessly now?

Will we truly be able to read and write memories, emotions, knowledge in the brain?

And then we have been looking at the relation between

Sci-fi and Science

about the history of science fiction linked to the history of science” (Future of Days Past)

linking the history of science fiction to the history of science, exploring through the science fiction authors’ eyes how technology changes society.

Ethical and research standards have changed a lot…
We have some historical perspective, but we’d need ethics of technology…


BrainJam addresses the social, ethical, and philosophical concerns deriving from the emergence of previously unimaginable technology and its possible future application to the most mysterious organ of the human body: The Brain.

This site is intended to engage in an open dialogue between scientists, society, and policy makers to address the philosophical and ethical concerns arising from the increasing trend of the biotechnology and biomedical fields towards man-machine hybridization. It pursues a holistic approach to human well-being using an interdisciplinary combination of expert perspectives and philosophy, in order to inform the public and correct widespread misconceptions and fears about ‘cyborgs’ and human enhancement, stemming both from transhumanism and bioconservatism.

Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

Imagine a craftsman being awakened suddenly in the dead of night. He searches downstairs for something among a crowd of mannequins in his workshop. If the mannequins started to move, it would be like a horror story…

To Humanity and Beyond

The case of the use of the abacus by Japanese school children and adults … tool’s use becomes incorporated into a culture-specific technology

The Mental Node

My view is that this gland is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed. The reason I believe this is that I cannot find any part of the brain, except this, which is not double …


We could, just as is the case with the electrocardiogram for pathologies of the heart, find an objective research method for pathological changes in the activities of the central nervous system, which would be of the greatest significance for diagnostics

Counting on the Brain

Despite the evolution of the nervous system, it is not accompanied by a manual explaining the principles of operation …

Mental Brains

Hemispherectomy… surgeons have performed this operation hundreds of times for disorders uncontrollable in any other way

The world is not a chessboard

A machine that could think like a person has been the guiding vision of AI research since the earliest days…

Human-Computer Symbiosis

The resulting partnership will think as no human brain has ever thought and process data in a way not approached by the information-handling machines we know today.

Voodoo Neuronics

The approach to discover the rules of all thinking and putting them in a computer failed by and large, instead programmers started looking more in detail at how human brains worked…

Backward Thinking

Artificial intelligence belongs in the history of human intelligence
