Dmitry Itskov, a Russian media mogul and multi-millionaire, has one goal: to be able to use technology to live forever. To be able to do this, he is currently heading a science-based project called the ‘2045 initiative’ which aims to “upload” human consciousness into an online avatar that can live forever. This is a step to eternal life technology.

Itskov has given millions of dollars into pioneering the research since the initiative was launched. His team of scientists, believe that the human brain is very similar to a computer and will eventually be able to be transferred to upgradable “bodies”.

Itskov claims that he has upped the urgency of his research. “If there is no immortality technology, I’ll be dead in the next 35 years,” he says in an upcoming documentary, The Immortalist. “The ultimate goal of my plan is to transfer someone’s personality into the new artificial carrier. Different scientists call it uploading or they call it mind transfer. I prefer to call it personality transfer.
