Scientists are asking businesses to finance their development in the field of cybernetic immortality
Recall that at the beginning of 2011 in Russia, a new strategic social movement "Russia 2045". It was headed by businessman, president of media holding New Media Stars Dmitry Itskov.
On the basis of the movement was to create a corporation "Immortality." It was composed of eminent specialists in the field of artificial organs, bionic systems and systems in place for the exchange of information between the brain and the electronic device. Most scientists — from the institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The purpose of the corporation — to create a completely artificial body of a person by the middle of this century (see "KP" here). Movement "2045" has manifested itself in two international conferences: the "Singularity Summit" in New York and the Global Future Congress 2045 in Moscow.
Plan "Russia 2045" and corporations "Immortality" is that in 2015 a prototype of "Surrogates", as in the movie with Bruce Willis. In this fantasy action film people got into the capsule, put on a helmet with sensors and strength of nerve impulses run your android — with full presence. In 2020, an artificial body will be publicly available and easy to operate, such as cars. In parallel experiments go to transplant the brain — first in animals, then in terminal patients. Then you should see the first commercial copy of an artificial body with a living brain inside. In 2030 — the creation of an artificial brain. And in 2035 — its combination with an artificial body. And in 2045 years — the creation of a body-hologram that can be projected anywhere in the world and which will be transferred to consciousness.
Fantastic idea captivated even the Dalai Lama XIV (see "KP" here). In an interview, he said in particular: "It is necessary to connect the body, the robot and the human mind, the human brain. It is necessary to combine. It's possible. "
But, of course, such big plans require big money. So the head of the movement appealed to Dmitry Itskov wealthy. It may be that they want to be the first immortal?
Here is his letter.
