Audio: The Transhuman Mind Meld: Martin Higgins interviews Ramez Naam
[Editor’s note: you might also be interested in this recent paper which proposes a real world “neural dust” very much like Naam’s fictional drug nexus: Neural Dust: An Ultrasonic, Low Power Solution for Chronic Brain-Machine Interfaces ]
Ramez Naam is the author of two SF books – Nexus and Crux – dealing with a mind linking nano-drug that he believes is theoretically possible. He is also the author of the non-fiction book More Than Human – Embracing the Promise of Biological Enhancement and his newest book about the power of innovation, Infinite Resource.
Ramez serves on the advisory board of the Institute for Accelerating Change, is a Senior Associate of the Foresight Institute, is a member of the World Future Society and is a fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.
