The Society of Neural Prosthetics and Whole Brain Emulation Science

Please Note: Yes, this is the original web site dedicated to “mind uploading” into substrate-independent minds (SIM), and in large part discusses the specific implementation route known as whole brain emulation (WBE). But, if you came here to find up-to-date information then you should probably head to the site of our non-profit organization:

We have had to prioritize updating of the site in order to support roadmapping, neworking and event related activities. 

We will return to refresh this site and give it new purpose as soon as possible!

Thank you for your attention, addresses the specific issues that may arise when neural prostheses are customized to a specific patient, and when large scale neural prostheses lead to whole brain emulation: the emulation of a patient’s complete brain function in a prosthetic substrate. Site content is focused on neuroscience and computational research that is involved in an eventual progression from neural prostheses to the applied science of whole brain emulation, including the concept of “mind-transfer”.
