Video: 2045 Initiative's Vision for Further Development of Humankind

We are facing the choice: To fall into a new Dark Age -- into affliction and degradation – or to find a new model for human development and create not simply a new civilization, but a new mankind.

The Pentagon’s new Avatar project, unveiled by Danger Room a few weeks back, sounds freaky enough: Soldiers practically inhabiting the bodies of robots...


"Global Future 2045" Congress Resolution Was Considered

On the February 20, 2012 After three days of seminars and presentations, Congress "Global Future 2045" closed with the round table discussion devoted to formulating concepts, forming future strategy and writing of the Congress Resolution.


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 Moscow (Radisson-Slavyanskaya Hotel).


The Problem of Bioprosthesis Control and Possible Solutions

In February 2011, a number of Russian researchers announced plans to create an artificial human body controlled by a neurointerface by the year 2045.


Cover Letter for the Humanoid BCI-controlled Robot Proposal

At the moment, there is an avalanche of growth in technologies used to create humanoid robots. In part it is due to the rapid development in microelectronics, sensor systems, new materials and software algorithms, etc. It is also related to public expectations that have been reinforced by the long-term predictions found in science fiction.


Letter of transmittal for project applications regarding the creation of a system for maintaining brain function outside the body

There is currently dynamic growth in the research being done on maintaining brain function and creating technologies that prevent neurodegenerative processes in the brain, technologies that treat auto-immune diseases, and technologies that activate regenerative processes after a stroke or other injury to the brain.


“Russia 2045” Has Never Been a Project Personally Initiated by Putin

On October 1st the New York Times published an article with a picture from a protest in Moscow that includes a poster of Vladimir Putin and a caption that reads, “Project "Immortality 2045", The Eternal”.

/ 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.
