Wild Card's description 
By 2020 EU researchers discover the secrets of downloading information directly to human brain. A microchip in brain either activates certain neural networks to learn, or it functions as an extra hard drive / database of a brain. The innovation comes from surprising combinations of brain research, cognitive sciences and network analysis.
