Resurrection after death possible in 30 years, with AI, company claims
Resurrection after death will be possible in about 30 years’ time, with AI (artificial intelligence), says the Los Angeles-based company Humai. The company says its mission is to ‘reinvent the afterlife’.
Humai says it is an artificial intelligence company that aims to bring you back to life after you have died. It is using nanotechnology and AI to store data of conversational style, thought processes, behavioral patterns, and information on how our body functions from the inside-out.
These data, the company claims, will be coded into several sensor technologies, which will be installed in an artificial body with the brain of a deceased person. Using cloning technology, it aims to restore the brain as it matures.
If you are resurrected, would that new entity (or being) be you or another personality, i.e. another ‘person’?
Resurrection? Really? Or a giant hoax?
Los Angeles is in California, an American state famous for either extremely forward-looking or downright bizarre movements. Some people wonder whether it might all be just a publicity stunt or an elaborate hoax.
In an interview with PopSci, Humai’s founder and CEO, Josh Bocanegra, said:
“After death we’ll freeze the brain using cryonics technology. When the technology is fully developed we’ll implant the brain into an artificial body. The artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts by measuring brain waves.”
“As the brain ages we’ll use nanotechnology to repair and improve cells. Cloning technology is going to help with this too.”

When asked when he believes this will become possible, Mr. Bocanegra said “We believe we can resurrect the first human within 30 years.”
Humai has kept its cards very close to its chest, i.e. it has not revealed at all how far it has come in this process.
Humai is not alone in making bold claims like this. In 2014, a Bitcoin pioneer, Hal Finney, had his body frozen in the hope that one day it could be resurrected.
