From the Turing Test to interconnecting brains, a look at innovation’s impact on learning

In 1985 the musicologist Clive Waring suffered a headache which lasted for a few days. By the time it passed he couldn’t remember the names of his daughters. He suffered from a very rare condition that has not allowed him to form new memories or remember anything in recent history.
