Mindfiles and Reconstructing Minds from Software…
At www.LifeNaut.com, we are often asked how would it work and why would you want to create a Mindflile. Creating a digital record (Mindfile) of a person’s unique characteristics (attitudes,values,mannerisms, and beliefs) may one day enable artificial intelligence software to transfer “a good enough copy” a person’s mind to a computer and one day even download it into a new body? This is an interesting talk on the subject given by Dr. Martine Rothblatt at the ASIM Expert Series….
Martine Rothblatt gave an ASIM Expert Series talk in Teleplace on “Reconstructing Minds from Software Mindfiles” on Saturday September 18, 2010.
Abstract: “I do think, however, there is a (natural) tendency to way overestimate the importance of copying our brain structure to copying our minds. I think our minds will be uploadable in good enough shape to satisfy most everyone by reconstructing them from information stored in software mind files such as diaries, videos, personality inventories, saved google voice conversations, chats, and chatbot conversations. The reconstruction process will be iteratively achieved with AI software designed for this purpose, dubbed mindware.“
