Humans may soon be able to live forever, or at least digitally, thanks to artificial intelligence. For those who prefer their physical body, there still is hope in the form of nanotechnology, which would involve nanoscale machines that travel in your blood and prevent aging by repairing the damage cells experience over time. They would also be able to cure certain diseases, like many forms of cancer, by removing their cells from the body. Read more to see how AI will eventually help humans achieve digital immortality.
Both researchers as well as entrepreneurs are researching how artificial intelligence could create versions of humans after their deaths, with one solution being recording their life stories and using them to create a replica embedded in a smart speaker. There are already hologram-like projections of dead musicians, including Tupac Shakur, who have performed on stage. Data from social media, voice recordings and writings can now be used to train an AI chat bot to converse and interact in the personality of the specific person, mimicking their voice and interacting using two- or three-dimensional images.

I don’t think when people are even asking about immortality they really mean true immortality, unless they believe in something like a soul. If someone was, say, to upgrade their brain and body to live a really long time, they would still not be able to live beyond the end of the universe,” said Susan Schneider, a philosopher and founding director of the Center for the Future Mind at Florida Atlantic University to Live Science.
