Billionaire Dmitry Itskov Wants to Achieve Immortality Using Robots

The concept of immortality might seem like something out of a science-fiction film right now, and it definitely sounds impossible to achieve for humans, as we have serious biological limitations working against us. However, a Russian billionaire named Dmitry Itskov wants to achieve immortality through technological means rather than biological ones, as he aims to transfer human consciousness into robotic bodies. Remember the movie Transcendence? Well, the main character played by Johnny Depp managed to transfer his consciousness into a computer, and while things actually got a bit out of hand after that, Dmitry’s idea is somewhat similar.

The difference is that he actually wants to allow humans to bypass their limitations regarding age, diseases and disabilities by living on as androids. The billionaire is confident that he’ll be able to achieve his goals in the next 30 years through the 2045 Strategic Social Initiative, which he founded in 2011. The initiative is working on developing a technology that would transfer an individual’s personality to an advanced non-biological body that could live for many years, potentially even forever.In order to achieve its goals, the project will need experts in fields such as anthropomorphic robotics, neural interfaces and artificial organs, but as long as funding will not be an issue, I’m sure that plenty of scientists will be able to offer their precious input. For now, the project’s leaders plan to create cheap android avatars that could be controlled by people remotely in order to perform dangerous tasks or rescue operations. The 2045 Initiative has

For now, the project’s leaders plan to create cheap android avatars that could be controlled by people remotely in order to perform dangerous tasks or rescue operations. The 2045 Initiative has stated the following regarding its plans for the future:

“The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimal conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies”
