This is a talk about human-machine interaction, computation, neuron
activity and the yet-to-exist biological internet, which follows from the
current direction of technological development and the physical model of
information exchange. To date, there are no formalized formats for direct
information and intent transfer between minds and other computational
structures. Such transfer remains a formative research topic. The fidelity
with which information and intent can currently be sensed, stored and
transferred is low when biological signals are the source. While
computational systems now direct a vast amount of the world economy and
influence large spans of human activity, the bridge between people and
these systems becomes critical. Dr. Jesse will discuss this bridge, as it
grows between people, their peers and their society, between people and
their economy, and soon perhaps, memory, and history.


Dr. Forrest Fabian Jesse is a researcher in human-machine interface and
the development of the biological internet. His experimental work focuses
on control of biological neuron circuit growth and information processing,
free-space neural interface, and mediated reality (AR/VR). Dr. Jesse
developed one of the first camera glasses life recording systems (Portable
Film) and one of the world's first laser based wearable augmented reality
systems (Portable Road).

His theoretical focus is context invariant computation, which gives the
physical basis for information transfer between computer systems and
people. The centerpiece of this computation theory is context invariant
NOR. He is the director of Xixuan laboratory in Beijing.
