2045: A New Era for Humanity
|Dmitry Itskov's Russia 2045 organization has released a video that provides a dynamic overview of the future of mankind.|
ussia 2045 has released a dynamic and inspiring new video highlighting the project and its aims. The timeline outlined in the movie ambitiously ends in 2045 with the era of neo-humanity.
Much like the Singularity, Russia 2045 is working towards creating smarter-than-human artificial intelligence and independent substrate minds, in a quest for transhumanist immortality.
According to Russia 2045's founder, Dmitiry Itskov,
We believe that humankind is currently on the verge of a complete collapse of its value structures. Consumer society is mostly concerned only with maintaining a comfortable existence and satisfying its desires. Science focuses on meeting people’s consumptive needs, and inventions that do not make an enormous profit are rejected—deemed nonviable, unnecessary. Our civilization, using modern means of transportation and communication, is incapable of liberating people from the constraints of a physical body, of eliminating disease and death. Consumer society provides corporations the opportunity to earn lots of money, but it never helps achieve a technological breakthrough. We are running in place ( we are spinning our wheels ) , even though we have the creative and intellectual capabilities to make many great discoveries.To go along with the video, Russia 2045 has put for the following forecast for the next forty years:
February, 2012Global Future 2045 Congress is held in Moscow - It is a debate platform for discussion of our civilization's prospects for development.
2012-2013The global economic and social crises are exacerbated. The debates on the global paradigm of future development intensifies.
New transhumanist movements and parties emerge. Russia 2045 transforms into World 2045.
Simultaneously, the 2045.com international social network for open innovation is expanding. Here anyone interested may propose a project, take part in working on it, or fund it, or both. In the network, there are scientists, scholars, researchers, financiers and managers.
2013-2014New centers working on cybernetic technologies for the development of radical life extension rise. The 'race for immortality' starts.
2015-2020 The Avatar is createdA robotic human copy controlled by thought via 'brain-computer' interface. It becomes as popular as a car.
2020In Russia and in the world appear -- in testing mode -- several breakthrough projects:
Android robots replace people in manufacturing tasks; android robot servants for every home; thought-controlled Avatars to provide telepresence in any place of the world and abolish the need business trips; flying cars; thought driven mobile communications built into the body or sprayed onto the skin.
2020-2025An autonomous system providing life support for the brain and allowing it interaction with the environment is created. The brain is transplanted into an Avatar B. With Avatar B man receives new, expanded life.
2025The new generation of Avatars provides complete transmission of sensations from all five sensory robot organs to the operator.
2030-2035ReBrain -- The colossal project of brain reverse engineering is implemented. World science comes very close to understanding the principles of consciousness.
2035The first successful attempt to transfer one's personality to an alternative carrier. The epoch of cybernetic immortality begins.
2040-2050Bodies made of nanorobots that can take any shape arise alongside hologram bodies.
2045-2050Drastic changes in social structure, and in scientific and technological development. All the
for space expansion are established.
For the man of the future, war and violence are unacceptable. The main priority of his development is spiritual self-improvement.
The next GF2045 International Congress will be held Spring 2013, in New York City.
