The date was chosen because Dmitry suspect be dead before his 70 birthday – so he just want be sure, his memories and personality will be preserved.  The 2045 initiative was founded in 2011 with the participation of Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems. The organization plan to transplant (upload) personality to a computer by 2035. If it will be possible, creating artificial, immortal body should be “piece of cake”.  Uploaded personality should be able to control robotic body – just like quadriplegic Erik Sorto can control a robotic arm thanks to sensors implanted in his brain.
