Mind Uploading

Mind Upload­ing is the hy­po­thet­i­cal pro­cess of (re)con­struct­ing some­one’s mind in a form that can be run on a com­puter. Whole Brain Emu­la­tion is a term for one pos­si­ble ap­proach to up­load­ing. The minds that re­sult from this pro­cess are called up­loads or ems (short for em­u­la­tions).
