Mind Uploading

TagLast edit: 28 Jul 2020 1:22 UTC by Ruby

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).
