CryoMind: the technology that will allow your mind to live forever

This technology based on the scientific concept “mind uploading” believes it's possible to completely translate the human mind into digital information and capable of accurately simulating the brain

The European startup CryoMind launched this week its homonymous technology: CryoMind. It’s an innovative system that offers the possibility of extracting the brain waves of people and keep in a safe place waiting for the world to discover mind uploading technology. This technology is based on the scientific and philosophical idea of "mind uploading" that opens the doors to individually reproduce those human minds that have been previously digitized and stored.

Mind uploading, also known as whole brain emulation, is the hypothetical futuristic process of scanning a physical structure of the brain accurately enough to create an emulation of the mental state and copying it to a computer in a digital form. The computer would then run a simulation of the brain's information processing, such that it would respond in essentially the same way as the original brain and experience having a sentient conscious mind. An argument for mind computability has been introduced by the Brain Preservation Foundation: "All of our current theories of the human mind are computational and imply that we are like a program in this sense we can in principle be copied and can have many ‘instantiations’ running simultaneously."

CryoMind offers a service to extract and store brain waves through a scanning session that requires an EEG (electroencephalogram) device developed by the partner company, Emotiv. “The human brain contains nearly 90 billion neurons, each of them connected with thousands of other neurons, creating a huge network of chemical and electrical impulses. This gigantic electric dance results in brainwaves that we can measure by an electroencephalogram (EEG). Everyone’s brainwaves are unique, and there are no two people in the world with completely identical EEGs patterns,” highlighted the creators of CryoMind.

CryoMind's mission is to keep your brain data for at least the next thousand years. Taking advantage of the service of specialized companies, the brainwaves data will be stored in a long-term archival facility 250 meters deep in the Arctic mountains permafrost. “Even if the company disappears, the data will remain in that facility for hundreds of years at the disposal of the scientific community, when the technologies and knowledge about the mind are advanced enough” concluded a CryoMind spokesperson.
