Can those memories serve to enhance retention of learnings and help-built connections or patterns we could not do in a conscious state? What is also intriguing is the work being done in projects like "Deep Dream" which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images. We may indeed be in the cusp of the "next big thing". But this is not new, AI pretty much has been at the forefront of all major conversations pertaining to technology over the past few years. From self-driving cars to intuitive virtual assistants, AI has been turning every science-fiction trope into reality.
