EXPLAINED: How we will soon be able to upload our MINDS to …

The bold predictions were made by Ray Kurzwell, director of engineering at Google, which has now been put under the microscope by Express.co.uk.

During a Global Futures 2045 International Congress, he sensationally said: We’re going to become increasingly non-biological to the point where the non-biological part dominates and the biological part is not important any more.

The mind-boggling speech added that mankind will have machine bodies by 2100.

Professor Stephen Hawking also thinks it will be possible to upload our minds saying the brain is like a programme in the mind, which is like a computer, so it was theoretically possible to copy the brain onto a computer and so provide a form of life after death.

But he added that this is way beyond out present capabilities.

Express.co.uk discovered mankind is caught in a paradox with experts knowing they WILL be able to do it, but are not sure how.

While there are solid theories about how we can make sci-fi a reality, theres one major hurdle scientists need to figure out first understanding what the mind actually is.

The average brain is made up of around 86 billion neurones which all interact with each other by sending electrical signals.

Although this is known, what remains unclear is how this makes up the mind what makes us which is proving to be a stumbling block in conscious uploading.

As it stands, it would take around two years to completely map a flys brain and all of its interaction with itself, so mapping a human brain, including memories which again is unclear how theyre stored, to upload to computer would be virtually impossible, but this doesnt mean that it wont come in the future.

When Express.co.uk contacted Google to explain how it will be able to upload minds to a computer, it played its cards typically close to its chest.

A source at Google said it is currently learning how to make computers easier and will begin looking into mind uploading in the future.

Kurzweil added: Our scanning machines today can clearly capture neural features as long as the scanner is very close to the source.

Within 30 years, however, we will be able to send billions of nanobots-blood cell-size scanning machines-through every capillary of the brain to create a complete noninvasive scan of every neural feature.

A shot full of nanobots will someday allow the most subtle details of our knowledge, skills and personalities to be copied into a file and stored in a computer.

But Professor Rafael Yuste of Columbia University said: “The challenge is precisely how to go from a physical substrate of cells that are connected inside this organ, to our mental world, our thoughts, our memories, our feelings.
