Begins the race to create an avatar that will allow us to be immortal
Earlier this year, a Russian billionaire named Dimitry Itskov publicly stated its intention to devote its resources to achieve nothing more and nothing less than immortality, and also get to the year 2045, because the thing is no fun if you can not enjoy it.
Of course, no one gave much credit, but this tycoon's statement was totally serious. So much so that Itskov has sent a letter to members of the Forbes list, the 1266 richest people in the world, inviting them to join what he calls 'The 2045 initiative'.
The billionaire claims to have recruited 30 scientists have begun to study how to achieve the project goal. It will also open an office in San Francisco to report on progress of their plan.
And what is this plan? Because the ultimate goal is to download the contents of our brains in a data network to literally become software whose representation could be holographic.
If you think this creepy, intermediate steps you'll love.2020, claims to have achieved Itskov create a copy of a human robot that can be controlled directly via an interface BCI (Brain Computer Interface). By2025, the initiative hopes to remove a human brain and keep it alive, connecting directly to robotic avatar, by then, will have been improved.
We arrived at2035. The project aims Itskov by then have found a way to download the contents of a human mind in an artificial brain by which the person would become immortal as machine completely. The last step is literally detached from the physical body and converted into energy (a hologram).
One could almost say that Itskov took too seriously 'Ghost in the Shell' Masamune Shirow. To those who are on the Forbes list is our turn to sit with a bowl of popcorn and see how far the good Itskov and his friends billionaires. Although the goal seems delusional, not someone invest more in R & D, for a change...
