Bringing people back from the dead? Sounds like something from a sci-fi movie but one man, Ray Kurzweil wants to do just that. He hopes to make people live forever, and bring his dead father back to life. Ray has the support of Google behind him since he’s now the Director of Engineering. Since his father’s death in 1970, Kurzweil has stored his keepsakes into a data in hopes of one day feeding it into a computer capable of creating a virtual version of his father. In fact, in one of his novels he describes how humans might be able to "transcend biology."
"We are a human machine Civilization and we create these tools to make ourselfs smarter," Kurzweil told scientific American. He also writes about wanting to build a computerized repica of the human brain in his latest book, "How to create a mind," he says, "we would be better equipped to fix its problems, like mental and neurological illnesses." He imagines a search engine accessing a database of your thoughts, stored in the Cloud. It would anticipate what people are seeking before they even knew it.
But none of this will become real until at least 2030. So what do you think? Would you want to have a virtual program of yourself left behind after you’re gone?
Sounds weird to me. Sometimes people should leave things just for movies, books and entertainment. Like the idea of bringing back the dinosaurs.
