Intent: For copying mental content (including long-term memory and "self") from a particular brain substrate and copying it to a computational device, such as a digital, analog, quantum-based or software based artificial neural network or holonet. The computational device could then run a simulation model of the brain information processing, such that it responds in essentially the same way as the original brain (i.e., indistinguishable from the brain for all relevant purposes) and experiences having a conscious mind.
Development Thread: Pending review.
Manufacturer: Todstern Industries
Affiliation: Private market.
Modularity: Currently the program is designed for Human and semi-Human species. Further developments may lead to adaptations for non-Human species.
Material: Durasteel and numerous small metals and compounds make up the main components of the device.
Description: (Include some strengths and weaknesses here. Describe some of the history behind the submission. Give us some idea of how it might perform its function, what it excels against and what some limitations of it are. This is where you talk about your idea, flesh it out over at least a good-sized paragraph, and address some of the ways it might be used or abused. For especially powerful or ambitious submissions, a very thorough description is recommended.)
