Company Claims Artificial Intelligence Can Keep People Alive Forever

Los Angeles-based company Humai is claiming that artificial intelligence (AI) can bring people back from the dead. Humai founder Josh Bocanegra believes this could be a reality within the next three decades. In fact, the company's mission statement reads “We want to bring you back to life after you die.”

According to the Humai website, AI and nanotechnology can be used to “store data of conversational styles, behavioral patterns, thought processes and information about how a person’s body functions from the inside-out.” The data can be put into multiple sensor technologies into an artificial body powered by the brain of a deceased person. The company restores the brain by using cloning nanotechnology.

As a result, a person could eventually live forever. Before the technology is completely developed, Humai intends to freeze its clients' brains using cryonics technology. Bocanegra shared “We’ll first collect extensive data on our members for years prior to their death via various apps we’re developing. After death, we’ll freeze the brain. When the technology is fully developed we’ll implant the brain into an artificial body."

Ray Kurzweil, Google’s director of engineering, predicted that technological singularity, which is the idea of uploading the mind into a computer and replacing body parts with machines while a person is still alive, would become a reality around 2045. Science fiction writer Vernor Vinge believes it could be possible by 2030.

Although professor Sir Colin Blakemore, a neurobiologist and former chief executive of the British Medical Research Council, human life will always have an expiry date despite advances made by technology or genetics. British consultant Michael Maven says Humai sounds too good to be true – with only five employees and no venture capital, he questions how they’ll be able to achieve what scientists have been trying to for years.

Maven asked “How will he connect it (the brain) to a machine? You don’t just simply plug it in via USB. Nanotechnology is not an answer, it’s a buzzword. The technology which could extract legible thoughts and ideas out of an organ made of living tissue is nowhere near anything we have yet.”

AI expert Andrea Riposati said, “No reason to believe it will be ready in 30 years. But this is an amazing business model for Humai. They can collect monthly/yearly payments from their customers promising something in the future.”
