Want to live forever? New startup aims to transfer consciousness to artificial bodies.

An ambitious Australian tech startup aims to develop technology to transfer human consciousness to an artificial body within 30 years.

The only certainties in life may be death and taxes, but soon taxes could be the only sure bet, as a new tech firm aims to offer humans the ability to cheat death.

The Australian startup, Humai, has the grand aim of developing technology to transfer an individual’s consciousness into an artificial body after death.

The fully artificial body will use nano technology to repair and improve cells, and will house the (formerly) deceased human’s brain – effectively allowing them to live forever.

Josh Bocanegra, CEO of Humain told Australian Popular Science “We’re using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioral patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out. This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human. Using cloning technology, we will restore the brain as it matures.”

He goes on to explain that the artificial body will be controlled by the individual’s thoughts “The artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts by measuring brain waves. As the brain ages we’ll use nanotechnology to repair and improve cells. Cloning technology is going to help with this too.”

In terms of timescale, Humai are aiming to have the technology to resurrect the first human within the next 30 years.
