A technology company claims it’s working on a project which would enable a human’s consciousness to be transferred to an artificial body after dying.
In what appears to be a plot from a science fiction movie, technology company Humai are working on bringing humans back to life after death, through artificial intelligence.
They are hoping that the technology – artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and bionics – will be ready in just 30 years.
Making an imprint of humans to remain after they go, Humai is using nanotechnology and artificial intelligence to store data of thought processes, information, behavioural patterns and conversational styles about how bodies function.
This data will be inputted into multiple sensor technologies, which will be constructed into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human.
As they explain it, this science means using cloning technology. Their website explains that Humai is an artificial intelligence company with a goal to reinvent the afterlife. They want to resurrect you after you die.
Based in Los Angeles, Humai is funded totally by founder and CEO Josh Bocanegra.
Bocanegra informed Australian Popular Science that the brain of the person who passed away will be frozen using cryonics technology in order that when the artificial intelligence technology is fully developed they can place the brain into an artificial body.
By measuring brainwaves, the artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts.
He added that as the brain ages they will utilize nanotechnology to improve and repair cells. Cloning technology will help, and they believe they can resurrect the first person within 30 years.
Bocanegra states that he does not think of it as fighting death, but rather as making death optional. He added that he cannot imagine why anyone would want to die, but that he respects their wishes.
Humai has five staff members including an ambassador, an artificial intelligence expert and two researchers.
