How far off are we from being able to transfer a human consciousness to a machine? Will Quantum computing help us get there? Is this the next evolution of our species?

"How far off are we from being able to transfer a human consciousness to a machine?" This is going to be an unpopular but true answer to your question. We are just on the precipice of knowing that this will never happen and that it’s been science fiction all along, Johnny Depp be damned! I... Continue Reading →
