The Meet-me-halfway route to Immortality:
One of the biggest challenges in creating AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) is, the fact that the human brain and mind is too complex to simulate. Yes, there are big budgets being sanctioned in an effort to map the human BRAIN, in the hope that it may provide myriad benefits to humanity and as an aside, at some point might even allow us to offload the brain onto non biological, if needed, substrates — Substrate Independent Minds.
Such might eventually be the outcome or goal of the Transhumanist movement: Making us post human, devoid of the diseases, the scourge of cancers, the heart-ache of grieving for loved ones taken away… in essence, giving us the ability to choose for ourselves, the way we want to exist.
