"What if you could remember everything? Soon, if you choose, you will be able to conveniently and affordably record your whole life in minute detail. In Total Recall, Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell draw on their experience from the MyLifeBits project at Microsoft Research to explain the benefits to come from an earth-shaking and inevitable increase in electronic memories."Join me for a live and interactive interview with Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell, co-authors of Total Recall: How the E-Memory Revolution Will Change Everything. This is a fascinating look into a future that is coming very quickly.
Total Recall is the book written by Jim Gemmell, the project leader, and Gordon about the MyLifeBits induced vision of the inevitability of Total Recall. In 2010, Gordon’s personal store or e-memory is over a quarter of a Terabyte, and the data is accumulating at about 1 Gigabyte per month.
Gordon has been a principal researcher at Microsoft Research since 1995. He is the former vice president of research and development at Digital Equipment Corporation (1960-1983); professor of computer science and electrical engineering at Carnegie-Mellon University (1966-72); founding assistant director of the National Science Foundation's Computing and Information Sciences and Engineering (CISE) Directorate (1986-1988); panel chair of the National Research and Education Network (NREN) for creating the Internet (1987-1988); advisor/investor to 100+ High Tech start-up companies (1983- ); and a founding trustee of the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. He has written several books about computer architecture and High Tech Ventures (1991) with John McNamara describing the Bell Mason Diagnostic. He is a member of the Bell Mason Group that consults on starting corporate ventures.
Gordon created ACM’s Gordon Bell Prize in 1987 to acknowledge and reward progress in parallel processing. He is a fellow of the ACM, American Academy of Arts & Sciences, IEEE, NAE, NAS, and 1991 National Medal of Technology medalist.
