Please Note: Yes, this is the original web site dedicated to "mind uploading" into substrate-independent minds (SIM), and in large part discusses the specific implementation route known as whole brain emulation (WBE). But, if you came here to find up-to-date information then you should probably head to the site of our non-profit organization: carboncopies.org. We have had to prioritize updating of the carboncopies.org site in order to support roadmapping, neworking and event related activities.
We will return to refresh this site and give it new purpose as soon as possible!
Thank you for your attention,
|MindUploading.org addresses the
specific issues that may arise when neural prostheses are customized to
a specific patient, and when large scale neural prostheses lead to
whole brain emulation: the emulation of a patient's complete brain
function in a prosthetic substrate. Site content is focused on
neuroscience and computational research that is involved in an eventual
progression from neural prostheses to the applied science of whole
brain emulation, including the concept of "mind-transfer".
what are neural prostheses,
whole brain emulation and mind uploading?
