In the upcoming decades, unbelievable and somewhat terrifying futuristic scenarios will come to pass.
Future inhabitants, according to futurologists, will become immortal and inhabit mechanical bodies.
According to Dr. Ian Pearson, a person will eventually be able to transfer their minds into computers and attend funerals where their former biological bodies would be interred.
Cyborgization does provide some benefits. Let’s consider the possibility of replacing each of our limbs with a superior one.
Modern advanced prostheses provide a sensation of touch, allowing us to feel things like temperature, pressure, and the material an object is made of.
We could acquire new legs, effectively resolving the issue of handicap.
Additionally, we may put implants in our brains that would enhance our IQ, memory, or make it simpler to pick up new abilities.
Dr. Ian Pearson, a futurist, highlights prospects on his blog that are both exciting and dangerous.
He believes that future technology advancements will make it possible for humans to replicate our minds and upload them to the cloud in order to achieve immortality.
A person will soon be able to “settle” in any cyborg’s body and live forever in digital form.
The hypothetical future process of scanning the physical structure of the brain precisely enough to produce an emulation of the mental state (including long-term memory and “self”) and transferring or copying it to a computer in a digital format is known as mind uploading, also known as whole brain emulation (WBE).
Then the computer would simulate how the brain processes information so that it would behave and feel like a sentient aware mind in much the same way as the real brain.
Significant mainstream research is being done in related fields, including connectomics, virtual reality, brain-computer interfaces, animal brain mapping and simulation, quicker supercomputer construction, and information extraction from dynamically working brains.
