Show Notes

All new episode of Exponential Africa show where Mic Mann interviews Divya Chander, Chair of Neuroscience at Singularity University. An exciting conversation on our brains, consciousness, meditation, fusing our organic brains to machines and its implications!

Neuroscience as is is a very broad type of science but simply put it is the study of the brain which encompasses mathematics, computational neuroscience and the birth of AI that came from neuroscience understanding neural networks!

What are your thoughts on rewiring our brains inside out? Being human Divya describes us as having two fundamental codes that can be rewired - our genes that today can be edited with technology which essentially is editing the code of life and our brains. We used to think that our brains could not be rewired, but neuroscience has proven otherwise. Today neuroscientists have the ability of decoding how our brains speak therefore finding ways to rewire the brain!

Divya speaks of fusing organic brains with machines, consciousness and the ethical implications of it all, watch the full episode and dive deeper into this fascinating topic!
