International Conference “Global Future – 2045” (GF 2045)

“2045”, a global social initiative based in Moscow, together with the Eurasian Center for Mega-History and Systematic Prognosis, under the aegis of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, are pleased to announce that on February 17-20 the International Conference “Global Future – 2045” will be held in the conference hall of the Radisson-Slavyanskaya Hotel in Moscow.


The goals of the Congress are as follows:

-  Discussion and demonstration of the newest developments in the fields of cognitive sciences, robotics, and modeling of living systems;

-  Evaluation the potential for transforming planetary civilization in light of the rapid pace of technological development;

-  Discussion of possible scenarios for the development of civilization in the context of new concepts regarding universal history, or “Big History”;

-  Discussion of strategic problems arising in a dynamically changing world and the potential for the appearance of a global or cosmic mode of thinking.

Program participants and members of the Organizing Committee of the Congress will comprise world leading physicists, biologists, anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers as well as specialists in the fields of Big History, robotics, brain-computer interfaces, neurosciences and space technology from Russia, the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Japan and other countries.

The Congress will also host an Investment Forum, where business leaders can learn about technology projects related to the topics under discussion.

The three-day event will conclude with an expert roundtable discussion, summary remarks, and the finalization of a resolution to be sent to the UN for evaluation and acknowledgment of the significance of the initiatives undertaken.  


Dmitry Itskov, Co-Chairman of the GF 2045 Organizing Committee and "2045" Initiative Founder:  
“We are confident that the Congress will prove an event of worldwide significance, the primary laboratory for formulating a global understanding of the events and processes critical to the uninterrupted development of human civilization. In light of the series of crises plaguing us today, our work is more relevant than ever. The Congress will become not only a discussion forum but a place where politicians, businessmen and the larger community can acquaint themselves with cutting-edge technological breakthroughs.”   


Akop Nazaretyan, Co-Chairman of the GF 2045 Organizing Committee, Professor, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Editor-in-Chief of the academic journal “Historical Psychology and the Sociology of History”: 
“Mutually independent assessments are predicting that in the middle of the XXI Century we can expect powerful polifurcation, comparable in significance to the appearance of life on Earth. Either a colossal breakthrough or a headlong collapse awaits us. You and I exist right now thanks to previous generations’ success in overcoming a range of dangerous global crises and transitional periods. Today, only the intensive development of new technologies has the power to save humankind from biological degeneration brought on by unprecedentedly high standards of living. These new technologies, however, are accompanied by new global threats. Our hypothesis, based on systematically drawn conclusions, is that a process of natural selection among planetary civilizations is occurring in the universe, based on a civilization’s ability to cope with technological progress. Whether the civilization of Earth will be left behind or join the ranks of those breaking through to a cosmic level of evolution – this is the critical question for the coming decades.”


The Global Social Initiative “2045”

was founded by Dmitry Itskov, President of the media holding “New Media Stars,” in February 2011 with cooperation from leading Russian specialists in the fields of neuro-interfaces and synthetic “biological” organs and systems.

The Initiative’s main goals are

-  the creation of a new conceptual framework for the development of humankind that answers the challenges facing civilization on a global level;

-  making the radical extension of human lifespan a reality with the use of cybernetic technology;

-  the formation of a culture that promotes technological progress and the synthesis of natural and artificial intelligence.

“Russia 2045” plans to found an international research center where leading scientists can work on the creation of integrated technologies for radically extending the lifespan of the individual.


The Eurasian Center for Mega-History and Systematic Prognosis under the aegis of the Institute of Oriental Studies

An authoritative academic organization working at the vanguard of a new direction in scholarly thought – the so-called “Mega History” (or “Big” or “Universal” history), the aim of which is

-  to create an integrated model of the past, including the core processes in the evolution of the universe, the Earth, biological phenomena, and material and spiritual culture;

-  to forecast social developments on both a regional and global scale with the use of complex interdisciplinary approaches. 


The Conference Program:

1. Technological Progress in the Foreseeable Future. The Convergence of NBIC and GNR. Preconditions for the Scientific-technological Revolution.

2. Universal History as an Instrument for Creating Prognostic Models. Methods for Making Global Prognoses.

3. Probable Future Scenarios. The Snooks-Panov Vertical and Other Possibilities. The development of world civilization: catastrophe or perseveration? Does Earth-based civilization have a future in space?

4. Psychological Assessment of the Stability of Planetary Civilization. Modes of Future Thought: Can strategic concepts move beyond ideology?


●  Instruments of Psychological Transformation in Traditional Cultures. 

●  Political Ideologies and “Global Thought”

●  Can there be a Synthesis of Scientific Theories and Spiritual Traditions?     


5. Strategy “2045” – A New Vector in the Evolution of Humankind in the Third Millennium.

/ About us

Founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011 with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems.

The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. 

The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society.

A large-scale transformation of humanity, comparable to some of the major spiritual and sci-tech revolutions in history, will require a new strategy. We believe this to be necessary to overcome existing crises, which threaten our planetary habitat and the continued existence of humanity as a species. With the 2045 Initiative, we hope to realize a new strategy for humanity's development, and in so doing, create a more productive, fulfilling, and satisfying future.

The "2045" team is working towards creating an international research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and development in the fields of anthropomorphic robotics, living systems modeling and brain and consciousness modeling with the goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier and achieving cybernetic immortality.

An annual congress "The Global Future 2045" is organized by the Initiative to give platform for discussing mankind's evolutionary strategy based on technologies of cybernetic immortality as well as the possible impact of such technologies on global society, politics and economies of the future.


Future prospects of "2045" Initiative for society


The emergence and widespread use of affordable android "avatars" controlled by a "brain-computer" interface. Coupled with related technologies “avatars’ will give people a number of new features: ability to work in dangerous environments, perform rescue operations, travel in extreme situations etc.
Avatar components will be used in medicine for the rehabilitation of fully or partially disabled patients giving them prosthetic limbs or recover lost senses.


Creation of an autonomous life-support system for the human brain linked to a robot, ‘avatar’, will save people whose body is completely worn out or irreversibly damaged. Any patient with an intact brain will be able to return to a fully functioning  bodily life. Such technologies will  greatly enlarge  the possibility of hybrid bio-electronic devices, thus creating a new IT revolution and will make  all  kinds of superimpositions of electronic and biological systems possible.


Creation of a computer model of the brain and human consciousness  with the subsequent development of means to transfer individual consciousness  onto an artificial carrier. This development will profoundly change the world, it will not only give everyone the possibility of  cybernetic immortality but will also create a friendly artificial intelligence,  expand human capabilities  and provide opportunities for ordinary people to restore or modify their own brain multiple times.  The final result  at this stage can be a real revolution in the understanding of human nature that will completely change the human and technical prospects for humanity.


This is the time when substance-independent minds will receive new bodies with capacities far exceeding those of ordinary humans. A new era for humanity will arrive!  Changes will occur in all spheres of human activity – energy generation, transportation, politics, medicine, psychology, sciences, and so on.

Today it is hard to imagine a future when bodies consisting of nanorobots  will become affordable  and capable of taking any form. It is also hard to imagine body holograms featuring controlled matter. One thing is clear however:  humanity, for the first time in its history, will make a fully managed evolutionary transition and eventually become a new species. Moreover,  prerequisites for a large-scale  expansion into outer space will be created as well.
