GeekSpeak – Uploading minds to Computers- Part 2 Join the Discussion Saturday March 31st at 12pm SLT



Do you think it will ever be possible to copy the pattern of neurons in a person’s brain and then upload that information to a computer so that the person continues to live as a form of AI?  If that were done would the new AI be the same person as before?  Would it be a conscious, aware person at all?

If minds could be uploaded to computers would you want to do it yourself?  Would you want it for people you love, who would otherwise be dead?

What would the world inside a computer be like?  Would we walk around in robot bodies?  Or would we live in virtual worlds in the computer?  Could uploading into a horrible virtual world be used as a form of punishment, a punishment that might last forever?  Would we see the beginning of a real Hell and a real Heaven?

When will all this happen?  Thousands of years in the future or maybe, as some think, in 10 years time?

Please IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for future subjects.

Happy Easter!
