K-Sandrix, an extended biography  

K-Sandrix is a project, run by a friend, whose the main objective is to
produce extensive biographies. In the current cryonics context in France,
even in the best case we must take into account the effect of a long
ischemic phase at room temperatureWhatever is done after that, we may well
have lost a large part of the memory content. So, it would be interesting
to have a non-brain back-up for as much informations as possible.  

The first step in that way has been with a biography service. Two such
biographies have been produced in 1998.They are "paper memories", the next
step, for 1999 is to add a large CD-ROM set to each new biography. CD-ROM

will include sounds/voice, pictures and may be dynamics hand writting. The
ultimate objective would be to build back the neural paterns controling
learned activities such speaking, writting,...  

The final step in the project is based on an experiment by Hewlett Packard
on continuous monitoring: A computer stores everything you hear or see.
Day after day, it produces a movie of your life and a total recall memory.
That possibility becomes more credible with the annouce by IBM of a pocket
computer with voice command and screen on glasses. With a Quick-cam, that

computer could take one frame every few second, compress it and store the

picture on its micro-disk. Every day, the memory content would be dumped
on a larger desk-top PC. That full system may be in large use five years
from now...  

If you are interested in the K-Sandrix project or want your own biography,
please let me know.
