Stolen mind

In 2050, our mind can be "uploaded" after death. We won’t be immortal, but our mind, knowledge and experience will feed in to the future internet. This may bring the old "body stealing for medical research" to a new level, where these minds could be stolen or deleted if ransom is not paid by the relatives.

Ece Çolpan It is possible but I don't think it is gonna be that soon. 18 Sep 2019
Георги Владимиров I don't think that would be possible after 33 years, because the brain is too complicated and have to do alot of reaserch about how even to get those toughts of being alive. But i think that idea will shape all the meaning of life and death. But that way will be part immortal which if the world don't change the people with money and power will be here forever. 06 Feb 2019
Dale Warren There are several leaps that make this implausible. 1. We don't understand the physical processes the brain uses to store information as memories. We DO know it's vastly different than a computer hard drive. For example: We remember a smell.. We can remember thoughts and feelings We can even remember remembering something. We have nearly 0% understanding of HOW the brain stores all that information. 2. This would require technology capable of processing memory info into an electronic format compatible with computer software. This too would require a lot of expensive research into a very specific subject. The practice would also have very limited commercial value. Who would fund the research and development? 3. The ethics are dubious. Recording ever last minute and personal private memory is more than a little creepy. This creep factor is exponential when that data is being transmitted throughout the world wide web. No information network is 100% safe... And anything that makes its way to the public will be accessible forever. Do you want your children to be able to access your most private sexual fantasies? Or their friends? I could go on, but Ii think my point is obvious. 06 Feb 2019
