Jeremy Bailenson: Infinite Reality
Ph.D., Founding Director, Virtual Human Interaction Lab; Associate Professor of Communication, Stanford University
Advances in our understanding of how the brain works, combined with the explosion of immersive digital technology, could make ideas as far-fetched as total “personality downloads” possible – meaning your great-grandchildren would be able to know and have conversations with you in the future, all in a virtual setting indistinguishable from reality. Bailenson posits that such advances could be here in just five years.
