The 2045 Initiative has the main objective to reshape humanity as such by: (1) the creation of a new
vision of human development that meets global challenges humanity faces today;
(2) the realization of the possibility of a radical extension of human life by
means of cybernetic technology, as well as (3) the formation of a new culture
associated with these technologies. 

The 2045 team is working towards creating an international
research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and
development in the fields of: anthropomorphic
robotics, living systems
modeling, and brain and
consciousness modeling with the
goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier
and achieving cybernetic immortality. Since February 2011, an annual congress
The Global Future 2045
is organized by the Initiative to give platform for discussing: mankind’s evolutionary strategy based on
technologies of cybernetic immortality as well as the possible impact of such technologies on global
society, politics and economies of the future.
