Not mind uploading quite yet, but certainly a very interesting step in
a very interesting direction.

Virsona's AI based technology lets users gradually build a "virtual
persona" (Virsona) which learns how to emulate its creator. From the
Virsona website: "Virsona has a patent-pending artificial intelligence
technology integrated into each Virsona , which enables it to reason,
remember and react as if the Virsona were the person it was designed
to emulate". There is the possibility that future advances in AI may
fire up consciousness in a virsona, which may then be considered as a
upload of its creator. "Personal Virsonas take the term 'social media'
to an entirely new level by giving people the ability to achieve
digital immortality," said Peter Hodge, CEO and co-founder of Virsona.
