Informatics and Consciousness Transfer

Alex Vary


This paper suggests that the science of informatics can and should be applied to the transfer of consciousness from a living biological brain to a mechanical brain - specifically, the realization of consciousness in robots. The suggestion is motivated by the need and intellectual drive to understand and enhance biological systems and to simulate biological systems by using inorganic hardware components such as silicon-based chips, mechanical devices, artificial neural networks, and associated programming and information/signal transfer modalities. The problems of and methods for employing informatics in designing intelligent conscious robots and proxy-humanoids are discussed. The informatics approach draws together the appropriate diverse fields, including computer science, information science, cognitive science, and computational neuroscience.
