Tech: Watch an Apple designer talk about storing every single memory you've ever had (AAPL)

Apple's Tom Gruber

"I can't say when or what form factors are involved, but I think it's inevitable"

Apple's Tom Gruber gave a talk for TED in April about his vision for a future where computers and artificial intelligence can supercharge what humans can do.

TED posted the Siri co-creator's talk online on Monday.

In the short, 10 minute discussion, Gruber imagines a product or service that could make a human's memory "as good as computer memory."

"What if you could remember every person you ever met, how to pronounce their name, their family details, their favorite sports, the last conversation you had with them?" Gruber asked.

"From the tiniest clue, it could help you retrieve anything you've ever seen or heard before. Imagine what that would do for the ability to make new connections and form new ideas," he continued.

Gruber calls Siri a "humanistic AI," or artificial intelligence software that collaborates with people and augments, and sees a memory-enhancing AI as a logical conclusion of voice assistants like Siri.

He still works for Apple though, and didn't reveal any details on future products — just the big picture thinking that's informing its development.

From the talk:

It's a refreshingly positive view of the future. Watch the entire video below:
