UPLOAD OUR MINDS TO COMPUTERS
MIT researchers working in the new ﬁeld of “connectomics” are
attempting to create a comprehensive map of the human brain’s
connections — the ﬁrst step toward creating an artiﬁcial brain to
which we can upload memories.
OpenWorm is an open source project seeking
to create the world's ﬁrst “organism in a
