The mind emulation foundation that asserts that 'human beings can continue to live digitally' appears by computerization



A website of the foundation seeking a donation of research funds was discovered, claiming that ``the human body will die, but if you

emulate your mind digitally you can continue to live'', and noticed on social news site Hacker News etc. Are gathering.

Looking through the Foundation's website, in the 'Mission' section, it is 'your heart is making you. Mind emulation keeps your heart alive after your body dies.' It is our mission to fund and research scientific research in order to accelerate the realization of emulation.'

According to the Mind Emulation Foundation, the human mind is part of a connectome with emergent properties. Since the connectome is a biological thing that represents the whole neural circuit, 'If we could emulate the entire human connectome digitally, we could also emulate the human mind,' claims the Mind Emulation Foundation.



The Mind Emulation Foundation states that it is important to be able to map all connections and

synapses of neural circuits in the brain to realize emulation of connectome, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 2017 With the ability to scan to the nanoscale level in a year, 'it is not far from the technology to completely map synapses without damaging the entire brain.'

The Mind Emulation Foundation also claims that the maximum number of mappable synapses is increasing exponentially with time. In the graph below, the vertical axis shows the number of synapses that can be mapped, and the horizontal axis shows the year. The Mind Emulation Foundation states that there are about 100 trillion human synapses, and in 1986, nearly 10,000 synapses could be mapped, and in 2020, about 100 trillion synapses could be mapped. I'm guessing it will be mappable in 2084.



Hacker News's

page discussing the Mind Emulation Foundation says, 'There is no basis that only the brain produces the emergence of the mind.' 'If you could map all synapses, you can drop your mind digitally.' There were many negative opinions such as 'I don't think it will happen.' At the time of writing the article, the name of the representative of the Mind Emulation Foundation was not specified, but it seems that inquiries are accepted from the following email address.
