New Futuristic Computer Lab

Have you ever been online and seen your family tree? Maybe a lot of work has been done for you, therefore when you click a name, it tells about the individual ancestors, all their descendants, and their ancestral line. What if it tells you more? What if we take some strategy from Vannevar Bush from Bell Labs and the concept of life logging or lifelong recording? What if your future ancestor has access to everything you do throughout your life? Is this possible? Let’s talk you know, with all the social networking you do, the more you make yourself online.
The Internet records every website you visit, every e-mail you send, every YouTube video you watch. He knows more about you than you know about yourself, and may be able to predict what you will do next even if you do not know yourself. This may scare you from a surveillance point of view, and ask you to question the validity of your personal privacy, this is quite often for me. In the future personal privacy may not really be a compound word or phrase that anyone ever used, may not exist, certainly not online. Now go back to the ancestral tree, what if everything from your whole life is still digitally archived in the cloud.
Futuristic Computer Lab
Your grandchildren, and their grandchildren, and their grandchildren can see everything about you, how you live, what you do, and can learn from your life experiences. This will help them understand where they came from, and their genetic line, and the lessons you learned, maybe the hard way. This will help them do better, achieve more, and mingle in ways that will help them move forward. Is not that a wonderful gift for your child’s future offspring? What if you had all this information from all your past ancestors? Is not that interesting for you? Do not you want to know what they are like, what do they do, what do they think, who their friends are, and what are their dreams? All of this could happen in the future, and it might also happen.
Actually your mind may be recreated one day in the cloud, and you will live in digital immortality. Interestingly enough, you may not live in heaven, but you stay in the clouds. Yes, this is an interesting futuristic concept, and there are a number of futurists who discuss things along this line. As a coordinator for a think tank it is interesting that in the present period we complete the components that allow this transition. Indeed I asked him to consider all this and think about it.
