Mankind has always hoped to extend the human lifetime indefinitely. Now a Los Angeles-based company has announced its intention to bring people back from the dead using artificial intelligence.
The company, called Humai, said they found a way to resurrect the dead by storing their memories and using artificial intelligence to return them to life. They claim they will be able to bring people back by 2030.
“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,”Humai CEO and founder Josh Bocanegra told Popular Science.
“This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human,” he added.
It sounds like something out of science fiction. The company, however, seems confident, even going so far as to suggest that death could one day be optional with their method.
“With the rise of brain-controlled robotic limbs, advanced biomedical implants, and life-saving medical treatments, it seems as though in the modern day, we’re closer than ever to conquering death,” wrote PopSci.
In an interview with IEET, Bocanegra said: “While other AI companies are attempting to make virtual versions of people after they die, his was the first to actually bring people back to life.”
“I don’t think tombstones, photos, videos, or even our own memories are the best ways to remember someone who has passed,” he said. “Instead, I think an artificially intelligent version of your loved one, whom you can interact with via text and voice, is more desirable.”
