Humans have been using prosthetics for a long time, especially to recover lost abilities such as eye sight with glasses, but it seems there is an increasing trend towards augmenting the human beyond its capabilities. The paper presents the results of a survey carried out in April 2018 regarding the willingness of people to use brain implants to improve their memory.
