Technology has infiltrated nearly every aspect of our existence, and according to one scientist, it’s time to introduce these advancements into the penitentiary system. In a groundbreaking new concept, a researcher has proposed a futuristic prison where criminals could serve their sentences in just a few minutes instead of years or decades, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The project, called Cognify, involves implanting synthetic memories of crimes into prisoners’ brains, but from the victims’ perspectives. Developed by Hashem Al-Ghaili, this concept aims to create a lasting therapeutic effect by making these memories permanent.

The proposed system includes a virtual reality-like device that displays AI-generated footage of the crime, paired with a brain implant that induces emotional states such as remorse and regret. This approach aims to instill feelings that some individuals may not be able to evoke on their own.

Globally, millions of people are incarcerated, and authorities claim that prison time deters future crimes. However, more than a hundred studies from 2021 suggest that imprisonment does not effectively prevent reoffending. Based on this data, Al-Ghaili designed a future prison to help criminals genuinely learn from their past actions.

According to Al-Ghaili, Cognify will eventually be able to create and implant artificial memories directly into prisoners’ brains. These complex, vivid, and realistic memories will be generated in real-time using AI. In practice, the rehabilitation process would last only a few minutes, but it would feel like years to the criminal.

The rehabilitation will be customized for each case, considering the severity of the crime and the sentence. Memories can be tailored to meet each subject’s rehabilitation needs.

Initially, prisoners will undergo high-resolution brain scans to create detailed maps of their neural pathways. These maps will be used by the Cognify device to target specific brain areas responsible for memory, reasoning, and logical thinking, including the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, amygdala, parietal lobe, and anterior cingulate cortex.

Once deployed, the device will broadcast AI-generated memories of the prisoners’ crimes, which could range from domestic violence to fraud. In addition to visual effects, prisoners may also experience physical reactions, such as the pain and suffering endured by the victims.

Cognify will also feature encrypted storage for sensitive inmate information and rehabilitation data. Al-Ghaili believes that his concept will revolutionize the criminal justice system, significantly reducing prison terms and the costs associated with maintaining prisons.
