Dr Ian Pearson has previously said people will have the ability to “not die” by 2050 – just over 30 years from now. Two of the methods he said humans might use were “body part renewal” and linking bodies with machines so that people are living their lives through an android.
But after Dr Pearson’s predictions, immortality may now be a step nearer following the launch of a new start-up. Human is hoping to make the immortality dream a reality with an ambitious plan.
Josh Bocanegra, the CEO of the company, said he is hoping to use Artificial Intelligence technology to create its own human being in the next three decades. He said: “We’re using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioural patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out. “This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human. “Using cloning technology, we will restore the brain as it matures."
Last year, UK-based stem cell bank StemProject said it could eventually potentially develop treatments that allow humans to live until 200. Mark Hall, from StemProtect, said at the time: “In just the same way as we might replace a joint such as a hip with a specially made synthetic device, we can now replace cells in the body with new cells which are healthy and younger versions of the ones they’re replacing. “That means we can replace diseased or ageing cells – and parts of the body – with entirely new ones which are completely natural and healthy.”
