People could potentially treat death in the coming 30 years as an option with a new technology resurrecting humans with an artificial body. This is the goal that the private company, Humai, is setting up as it is developing a technology that would bring the dead back to life using a new body with the brain of the deceased human.

The information about a deceased person will be coded to multiple sensor technologies, Humai says on its Web site. The “conversational styles, [behavioural] patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out” would be stored on a silicon chip through AI and nanotechnology.

When the technology is fully developed, the company said that it will implant the brain into an artificial body. Humai expects that the first procedure would be performed in 30 years.

“The artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts by measuring brain waves,” Humai CEO and founder Josh Bocanegra told PopSci.

However, the technology is not capable to stop the natural aging process of the brain. But Bocanegra noted that they would use nanotechnology to repair and improve its cells.

Cryonic technology would be used to freeze and store the human brain after death. Cryonics is a concept of using extremely cold temperatures to preserve a human body, which is beyond help by today's medicine, for decades or centuries until a future medical technology can treat them.

Humai will collect data from people for years before their death through various apps they are currently developing, Bocanegra said. They will then freeze the brain using cryonics after the death of the person.

The concept of Humai to copy stored neural information of a person is likely a science fiction at the moment, according to IFLScience. However, the company suggests that death could soon be optional by using their method.

“I don’t think tombstones, photos, videos, or even our own memories are the best ways to remember someone who has passed,” Bocanegra said. “Instead, I think an artificially intelligent version of your loved one, whom you can interact with via text and voice, is more desirable.”
