/ Immortality Corporation Vision
Let me introduce you the Immortality Corporation work schedule.
The schedule is based on the analysis of the already existing research programs of "2045" Initiative Group Members, as well as other scientific communities from Russia and abroad.
Artificial Body Research and Development will be divided into several tracks, to be pursued simultaneously.
The four tracks and their suggested deadlines are optimistic but feasible. This is our program for the next 35 years, and we will do our best to complete it.
The fourth development track seems the most futuristic one. It’s intent is to create a holographic body. Indeed, its creation is going to be the most complicated task, but at the same time could be the most thrilling problem in the whole of human evolution. Perhaps it is the ‘radiant mankind’ Konstantin Tsiolkovsky wrote about.
We are in the process of creating focus groups of experts. Along with these teams, we will prepare goal statements and research programs schedules.
We invite interested specialists to contact us and join the discussion. We welcome your contribution.

"While innovation is often presented as a technological process, it also needs to be applied everywhere and to everything. We need innovation in human affairs, from family relations to business affairs. Innovation has to address both ecological balance of species and destruction of inorganic habitats. Alternatives must be found for warfare and the arms industry. In short, innovation is a process that applies to all existence..."

' If the job is to be taken seriously, we can get a detailed model of a brain prototype within five years or so. And since many research areas concerned with the subject develop in parallel, it may well be that we can achieve these results even faster...'

Do you remember The Surrogates movie? It perfectly demonstrates the abilities of a mind-controlled artificial human body, or an avatar. It is what our project is all about. The Surrogates’ screenwriters were not consistent enough (probably due to the lack of imagination) in the evolution of their ideas. There is no doubt that the mankind needs an avatar.

"... I certainly think that practical benefits of being able to live for ever, if I transmit myself digitally, I will be able to run on bodies which are not biological or enhanced biological and be able to backup copies in case, if something goes wrong, would be enormous. So, I think, that in the future I am hoping to be software..."
