“The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality.” – 2045 Initiative
As shown in the image at the top left corner, 2045 Intiative maintains an Avatar milestone which predicts certain revolutionary advancements in the science and technology sectors – in particular, those which will add onto the viability of eventual mind uploading. Each story covered in their Avatar Technologies Digest compliment those milestones, whereby they increase the likelihood of us someday achieving legitimate mind uploading at around the time of year 2045.
In their first digest they briefly cover six different stories. The first one being Google’s recent efforts in expropriating age-related diseases, effectively curing aging itself. The second story goes into the development of the world’s first fully functional bionic heart which, if successful, will put an end to cardiovascular disease permanently. The third story goes into a young boy meeting actor Robert Downey Jr., in which the actor surprises him with a special gift: an Iron Man-inspired bionic arm! The fourth story covers the recent development of autonomous liquid metals by Japanese scientists, which should remind readers of how the robots in Terminator moved around. The fifth story goes into French researchers’ recent successful achievement of implanting new, happy memories into mice – a feat that compliments mind uploading well. And the final story revolves around the recent creation of an injection which should effectively stop people from bleeding to death from traumatic injuries.
