Already involved 30 scientists
In the first stage, for the year 2015-2020, the aim is to create a robot — a copy of the human body, which could be controlled by the human brain.
Then, in 2025, the project envisages the creation of an avatar, in which the human brain is transplanted to the end of life.
The working group hopes to create by 2035, an artificial brain, which could be transferred to the human person, so that in 2045 to reach a goal: to create an avatar — that is a hologram — completely identical to the appropriate person.
According to the website of the draft, they have "the following main objectives: the creation of a new vision of human development, the possibility of a substantial increase in capacity due to cyber technologies, and creating a new culture associated with these technologies."
Youngest billionaire said that already recruited 30 researchers, to further the eternal search (cyber) life. It also plans to open a control center in San Francisco, to track the development of the project. "
