The 8th International BlockchainUA

0

Conference will be held in Kiev on September 18, 2020. Bank of Memories is a media partner of the conference.

Every year the BlockchainUA brings together more than 1000 blockchain entrepreneurs, investors, block enthusiasts, IT experts and media representatives from around the world to discuss solutions to current challenges in the field of blockchains and decentralized technologies.

Personally we can say that at the conferences organized by BlockchainUA we managed to meet and get consultations from the leading specialists in the field of Blockchain technologies, such as

Gordon Einstein, Counsel, Distributed Lab
Pavel Kravchenko, Co-founder of Distributed Lab
Mikhailo Chobanyan, Founder of Kuna
Roman Oleynikov, Input Output HK, Director, Veritas Project

Information and advice of these specialists helped us to build the legal architecture of the project, to determine the role of the blockchain in the project, the right time of listing on the stock exchange and the nuances of this process.

 

We invite all interested people to join the event and get a quality network.

How to open your own digital bank with Bank of Memories

The first ones receive the most pleasant bonuses, and it is true, so in everything!

As you may know, many new IT services reach customers. However, before the project goes live, it must pass a user experience test, bugs fixing etc. (a bug is a jargon in programming, usually denoting a program error).

This short article was born after the interview I gave to one online media. The interviewer asked me how our testers can become our partners and I will tell you how.  

We offer our early adopters to become testers and earn bonus tokens. In the future, every early adopter could easily have their own Bank of Memories and store data in the decentralized storage.

Everyone will be able to grow to the level of a private bank and the volume of this bank and the amount of earnings will be limited only by the imagination of a partner.

Here is the way how to improve a financial situation in three years.

  1. 3 days to study the project
  2. 2 months to participate in the test, find bugs. It is like a franchise where you invest only 200 GBM tokens in mining and create you own private data storage bank. After this tiny investment you will start work. As any bank, the owner has expenses for electricity and the Internet costs, and earnings for the data stored.
  3. During 3 months test of a decentralized storage system our partners can earn 300 GBM.
  4. Net profit from the placement of 8 TB (terabyte) storage will amount to 4214 GBM per year.

I don’t want to predict the price of GBM itself. I can say only this: 50% of all tokens will be distributed to users in amounts not exceeding 0.1 to 5 GBM to create a stable number of users in the first 3 years. This will be approximately 14 million users.

The client receives compensation for every action as in the game where you are the main character, the game is lifelong. The more you play and actively participate, the greater the bonuses will be.

The question immediately arises, where will the service take such a number of users?

Why is a startup confident in the growth of coin liquidity?

What other functions does GBM perform in the service infrastructure?

The scarcity and price of a coin proportionally depends on the popularity and relevance of the coin, as well as the functionality of the coin.

GBM coin is a means of payment in the storage system, it regulates the sending of messages to the future. It is also responsible for increasing storage, and also saves on storage and acts as a reward for actions.

 By using GBM, the Bank of Memories project will ensure data integrity. Payment is frozen on a smart contract and allows you to ensure stable payment for storage services. The more data we store the less free coins will be in circulation.Keepers receive coins when they fulfil necessary conditions of the Bank of Memories. 

Today you are saving data for 1 year, tomorrow you would like to save data 10 – 20 – 30 years ahead. 

All participants in the process benefit from this interaction algorithm.

The client receives a protected, private and constantly updated service with a set of unique functions. Functions of our service are described here.

Keepers (private data banks) receive a constant influx of data, payment for the service provided, and a steadily growing shortage of GBM coins.

Developers get the opportunity to create their products based on GBM using all the developments of the project, incentives in the form of grants, and the ability to generate their tokens based on the system for free.

Thanks to this, the Bank of Memories is growing and developing, increasing its presence in the market for storing and transferring private data.

It is important to note that the Bank of Memories itself will be a keeper too, along with everyone else, will earn GBM coins.  This guarantees security to customers, and to the participants an increase in the popularity. 

Monetize the opportunity – well-being is desire multiplied by diligence!

It is very easy to become a tester – just join our international community here  

Gartner: Blockchain Perspectives in 2020

0

Blockchain technology has ushered in an era of decentralization, when customers own their data and decide how to use it. In this regard, IT leaders need to rethink their strategies, writes Aviva Litan, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner on InformationWeek.

Blockchain is an alternative method for tracking and managing customer data. IT leaders need to know where decentralized technology is heading or they risk losing the competitive race. Just look at the latest news to see how the value of customer data has grown. Data abuse and privacy breaches are consistently referenced in many reports from tech companies, and the latter now includes new terms such as the “surveillance economy,” where customers sacrifice data privacy in exchange for “free” services. … To combat this phenomenon, a number of legislation has been enacted, such as the California User Data Protection Act, which gives consumers the right to request information from suppliers about what data is collected about them and to attempt to prohibit its sale. Technological solutions such as blockchain, which have achieved some success in recent years, including in the field of data transparency, are less often discussed in specialized circles, but interest in them is constantly riveted.

As defined by Gartner, “a blockchain is a regularly updated list of irrevocable cryptographically signed transaction records that all network participants have access to.” Since these timestamped records are decentralized and immediately duplicated by all parties involved, it is exponentially harder to hack the blockchain. It is also more transparent: anyone with access rights can learn about a transactional event at any time in its history. For enterprises, centralizing customer data is a security threat and a single point of failure. It also imposes constraints on the introduction of new business models and customer development dynamics. At the same time, blockchain provides immutability and traceability of records without the need for centralized management. This can help you implement alternative methods for tracking and managing specific customer data.

This is especially important when the costs of adding data sources and the associated increased liabilities outweigh the benefits. With the explosive growth in the use of customer data in emerging technologies such as AI and IoT, transparency is becoming extremely important for customers. If the blockchain itself has reached a certain maturity threshold, then the UX / UI technologies that support it are in their infancy. Soon they will start a war, much like the war of standards that led to today’s Internet standards. According to Gartner, by 2024, 30% of sensitive personal data of customers will be protected by licenses based on blockchain technology. Blockchain-based UX / UI principles will benefit both customers and businesses.

The market needs atomic compatibility
Many organizations have come to the conclusion that blockchain can revolutionize economic and social interactions and ultimately become the backbone of a digital society. However, a number of fundamental problems need to be addressed first. The point is that before they can apply blockchain, they need to choose the right platform, the right smart contract language, the right system interfaces, and not worry about algorithm compatibility. In other words, the times when the blockchain can operate smoothly at the “atomic” level has not yet arrived.

Furthermore, it lacks cross-functionality (interaction between two relatively independent blockchains) where a smart contract can update multiple blockchain platforms with a single process. All this innovation and standardization will take at least three years.

There are some precautions to be taken when working with blockchain. Before giving preference to one or another type of smart contracts, you should think about security and risk management, since damage caused by accident (due to errors in the code) or deliberately (intruders) cannot be “canceled”, transactions on the blockchain, as already mentioned, are unchanged.

The need to attract competitors
As of the beginning of the year, most blockchain platforms only include three full cycle elements: distribution, encryption, and immutability. Often these proposals are aimed at improving efficiency by optimizing existing processes. According to Gartner, most blockchain platform owners do not want to partner with competitors, but maintain close ties with select vendors and partners.

Gartner has identified over 60 public blockchain initiatives. Their authors are blockchain consortia from all over the world, open for collaboration. These include banks, medical organizations, energy, transport, logistics, insurance and utilities companies, as well as educational institutions. According to analysts, in 2023

89% of cryptocurrency investors can stop worrying and use Bank of Memories

0

Recently Turner Wright presented a profound and very important analytics. (https://cointelegraph.com/news/study-89-worry-what-happens-to-their-crypto-after-they-die) It was posted on Cointelegraph and is based on The Cremation Institute research (https://cremationinstitute.com/crypto-estate-planning-study/). 

 

The key point of this research was to find out the behavioral patterns of cryptocurrency investors. What will happen in the future if they lose passwords from crypto wallets or they pass away? Who will inherit that money?

 

The online survey was conducted between October 20, 2019 – June 3, 2020. In total, there were 1,150 participants between the ages 19-73. 

 

Research reveals that 89% of cryptocurrency investors worry about what will happen to their assets after they die. Yet, despite this concern and real threat of losing their hard-earned crypto assets, only 23% of investors have a documented plan.

 

So people understand that their property, assets or other digital data can be lost or stolen, but still don’t pay enough attention to this problem.

 

Maybe they even don’t have to… Bank of Memories, startup in crypto and data storage area, is ready to provide them with the solution (or give them the solution). We are talking about blockchain based technology which combines reliable storage of any type of personal digital information and possibility to create personal digital testament so that relatives can inherit digital assets. 

 

Blockchain and decentralization were chosen as core technologies Bank of Memories uses. It is the only system that is protected from data falsification, hacker attacks and viruses. 

 

You can always find out who made the record, for whom, when and under what conditions the right to own a digital asset was awarded. For us, this is just an encrypted file. In the future this encrypted will will reduce in the cost of arbitration and will add clarification of relations between relatives.

 

We provide a convenient and reliable tool for digital assets transfer. Transparent, protected from fraudulent schemes, fakes. If a person does not agree, you can always see when the record was made, for whom.

 

Loss of data in the system is impossible, for several reasons.

 

  1. Connections in a family tree. Family is responsible for the accounts themselves and confirms only those people who are relatives. From a psychological point of view, relatives and friends are ready to pay for the data for the relatives who passed away.

 

  1. Digital testament (paid function of transferring rights to data).

 

  1. When clients create an account, they connect relatives and friends, and can also communicate with friends. As soon as this happens, an emergency key is created ( in blockchain), which will become the key to digital assets in the future.

 

The Launch of the Bank of Memories application is expected in September, 2020.

It is important for me to be remembered or why I have not sold my dream for $1 000 000.

I knew that this day would come and I would write about Bank of Memories and focus on the culture and philosophy of personal data storage, which we carry with our values.

Digital society is forming now and it’s a right time to give a new digital product to the world.

8 years ago, my mom got Parkinson’s disease. It was a tragedy for the whole family. Realizing that she would not live a long life, I set a goal to collect all the information about her, so that I could pass it to the future. I wanted her to tell about herself to her grandchildren at least in a digital space. However, it turned quite difficult to gather all information about her. Photos in one place, files in another, videos in the third, and relatives had some archives as well.

I began to study the services of unified data storage available on the market and it turned out that they were unsafe, expensive and unreliable. Judging by the reviews, another 35 million people faced the same problem.

In total, about 250 million people are trying to save. Many existing services are limited; you cannot synchronize or administrate data easily. If the access to the system is lost it is sometimes impossible to recover.

How to save yourself so that it is interesting to review your archive later? It is important for me to remember about my mother, I would like the message she sent to the future to change the lives of my children for the better. I do not want her whole life experience to be reset to zero in one day. We, like flash drives, accumulate information during our life and then we are reset to zero when we pass away.

I have a question to you: Would you be interested to know about your great-grandfather? Not just look through the pictures or see the video, but to see and hear something what is to be said privately by a fireplace. Information told by a person with your genetic code, by someone, who looked alike and lived in the past.

I guess you would remember his story and wisdom the whole life.

 

These challenges with data storage and sending it to the future made me reevaluate my whole life. I shut down my construction business and went into the unknown world of IT startups.

I came to build a reliable, simple and interesting service for self-storage. As I realized later, I did it backwards. Nevertheless, I understand this only now, when part of my path is behind and there is an opportunity, having climbed the hill from trial and error, to evaluate the path I traveled.

  • “Is it scary to shut down a working business and go into the unknown at 33?”
  • “No, it’s not scary, because going after a dream should not be scary,”

 

It was not enough for me to just earn money. I wanted to create something useful for this world, something that would benefit everyone, and not just me.

Why am I writing all this? For you, my dear and beloved future customers. All those who need to save themselves; all those who understand what a unique opportunity we have now, creating our personal data saved securely.

I want to take you by hand along the path I walked and show how we create the Bank of Memories. I want to give you something completely new, beautiful and interesting, something that will give you hope that you will be heard in 100 years by new generations. The way that can make you the first immortal inhabitant of the digital universe.

The first always get the best.

Subscribe to our YouTube Channel and register to try the product soon.

Follow this link and use the service free. We will give you 5 GBM tokens as a gift (only first 10 000 users will have it and we have 8 350 accounts left offering this perk now)

We will activate all functions free once we launch the service.

I’ll write every week about how I pitched the project to German Gref, how the crypto billionaire deceived me, how somebody sent me $ 2,000 when I got stuck in Kazakhstan with the note “when you get rich, please return”, how I became a vegetarian, how the investor deceived me in China and then the photographer saved me.

How I lost a friend with whom I did this project, but I didn’t give up.

I managed to go forward and believed that one day everyone can save themselves and their grandchildren will see it.  

I will also write how to refused $ 1 000 000 twice, realizing that the money offered for my idea will simply destroy the energy of the project.

There will be stories on how I found a team. How to find love and not lose faith. About the architecture and the algorithm that will give security. I will share documents, algorithms and … fuckups, of course.

PS: Like any small child, we need your support, dear readers. If you are an investor, please reach me out directly at melanchik@bmcoin.io.

With love and sincere gratitude for your time,

How is the storage culture formed? The Results are In: Cyber Protection Week 2020 Survey

0

With this year’s evolution from World Backup Day to World Cyber Protection Week, we’ve taken a fresh look at everything related to the annual event. Along the way, we found opportunities to build awareness of a broader array of topics, to expand the discounts we offer to new users and use cases, and to share the results of our global survey with a wider audience.

For this last point, we broadened the scope of our annual survey (formerly run as part of our World Backup Day celebrations) to learn more about the threats, challenges, and opportunities that face the global community.

Learn what our 2020 survey results mean for you:

IT professional results analysis

Service provider results analysis

Personal user results analysis

What’s new in the 2020 Cyber Protection Week survey

In our fifth annual survey, we moved beyond a historic focus on the experiences of personal users to include more IT professionals than ever before. We grew the number of respondents to nearly 3,000 in 11 countries around the world. And we updated our survey to address more of the digital challenges and concerns that face modern IT users – whether they’re at home, at work, or relying on a service provider who takes care of a wide range of clients.

This year’s findings provide insight into the modern state of backup, cyberthreats, data loss events, data privacy, and more – while painting a clear picture of what individuals and organizations are doing well, and not so well, in trying to overcome modern protection challenges. Here are the key takeaways from the 2020 World Cyber Protection Week survey:

People are backing up, but they’re also ignoring best practices

As we saw last year, a high percentage of respondents are backing up the devices they’re responsible for (91% of individuals and 90% of organizations back up at least once per year). Troublingly, though, the frequency of backups and the method of storing backups are both lacking. The largest segment of individuals reported backing up once or twice a month (33%) while the largest segment of business organizations reported backing up weekly (28%). When performing backups, less than one in five uses the hybrid backup method – a recognized best practice.

  • 51% of personal users and 25% of IT professionals back up to local storage devices or separate hard drive partitions
  • 31% of personal users and 36% of IT professionals back up to the cloud
  • 20% of IT professionals replicate data to other data centers
  • 17% of personal users and 20% of IT professionals back up to a combination of cloud and local destinations

Of course, ignoring best practices is problematic. More than two-thirds of personal users (68%) reported losing data or devices, along with 43% of IT professionals. And with backups not run frequently enough, any one of those data loss events could result in days of work becoming irretrievable.  

Data safety and privacy are universal top priorities

Despite these flaws in data protection approaches, both personal users and IT professionals report that they are concerned with the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection accordingly:

  1. Safety – Ensuring that you have reliable backups that keep data, applications, and systems complete and recovery ready
  2. Privacy – Maintaining control over who can view and access data, applications, and systems
  3. Security – Establishing reliable defenses against cyberthreats and cybercriminals
  4. Accessibility – Ensuring rapid access to data, applications, and systems when and where it’s needed
  5. Authenticity – Offering confirmation that data, applications, and systems are original and unmodified

This prioritization makes sense given the wave of data breaches and high profile ransomware attacks that continue to fill headlines and the personal experience many respondents have had with data loss incidents. The good news is that users are taking action, working to enhance their data safety, privacy, and security as follows:

  • 43% of personal users and 69% of IT professionals have solutions in place to detect when data is unexpectedly modified
  • 42% of personal users and 71% of IT professionals use anti-malware solutions that are able to defend against never-before-seen (zero-day) cyberthreats
  • 88% of personal users have taken steps including password encryption, securing WiFi, and more to protect their privacy online

In our age of increasingly sophisticated and costly cyberthreats, there’s good reason to take steps like these.

Dangerous gaps in understanding are emerging

This year’s World Cyber Protection Week survey also revealed shared concern among individuals and IT professionals about a variety of cyberthreats:

  • 78% of personal users and 86% of IT professionals are concerned about cryptojacking
  • 82% of personal users and 88% of IT professionals are concerned about ransomware
  • 82% of personal users and 87% of IT professionals are concerned about social engineering attacks
  • 84% of personal users and 91% of IT professionals are concerned about data breaches

This high level of awareness sparked and increased focus on data protection and cybersecurity.

However, there remains a noteworthy segment of individuals and organizations that aren’t aware of the threats that they’re facing. Our survey found that 12% of individuals aren’t doing anything to protect their privacy online, 32% wouldn’t know if portions of their data were accessed or modified by unauthorized individuals, and 31% don’t know if their anti-malware can detect newly emerging cyberthreats. That’s on top of the 12% of consumers that don’t use any anti-malware at all.

For IT professionals, this ill-informed segment is smaller but it’s shocking to exist at all. In the modern digital world, 6% of IT pros aren’t sure if their organization is subject to data privacy regulations, 12% don’t know if they could detect unauthorized data manipulation, 13% aren’t sure that their anti-malware could detect zero-day threats, and 9% aren’t sure if their organization had a data loss event this year that resulted in downtime.

Final Thoughts

Whether you’re primarily a personal user, a corporate IT pro, or a service provider responsible for keeping multiple clients running, you’re faced with an astonishingly complex digital world. Data is both more important and more vulnerable than ever. Protecting it is essential – but this year’s survey underscores the big question all users have: how?

Trying to safeguard modern devices and IT environments with traditional, legacy solutions continue to prove inefficient and unreliable – piecemeal solutions that respond to specific, individual use-cases leave gaps in your security, are frustrating to maintain and manage, and leaves you guessing about how safe, accessible, private, authentic, and secure your information really is.

Cyber protection is designed to bring data protection and cybersecurity into the present day. Users gain ready-access to easy, efficient, and secure solutions, which deliver integrated, advanced protection. Suddenly, it’s not so hard to fill gaps in your defenses, reduce your expenses and tasks, and gain peace of mind that your data, applications, and systems are all covered.

What is your market? Who is your customer? And why exactly are they? founder of the Bank of Memories.

Let’s get acquainted. My name is Andrey Melanchik. I am a founder of the Bank of Memories. For the last 5 years I have been creating a service, which purpose is intelligent data storage and administration of personal data. In this article I will try to answer the third question received from all investors. The market, the buyer, the seller are all the words that really mean the process of buying and selling, and at the top of all this process are emotions, or if I’m wrong, well, then throw stones at me. Let’s agree that emotions in this article mean a state, and varieties of it are on second place . But don’t forget that negative emotions are always stronger and longer.
How can you work with emotions? They can be caused, strengthened or renewed. Renewed only when a person has experienced emotions personally.
Who is our ally in this process, who is stronger than us, who can break through the armor of rationality, who is likely to affect the emotional strings of the human soul? Correctly! Related and close, beloved people! When a man loves, he is opened and closest! We are unarmed in front of love! And then the question is how does all this concern to the questions” What is your market? Who is your customer? And why exactly are they?” . Everything genious is simple. Our market consists of emotionally excited people.
Our customers are couples in love at the stage of pregnancy, who have just given a birth, raising children from 1 to 7 years. Relatives of the deseased, seriously ill, elderly people and tourists. In a word, people who are in deep emotional excitement.
And why did we decide so? Everything is very simple. I’ll try to explain it. Let’s put in order the numbers of dry statistics, analysis and conclusions.
From big to small. Smartphone users in the world for 2019 is 3.6 billion users we take as a basis people, who use social networks and this is an advanced user. In fact, there are 3.6 billion typewriters of content in the world. In fact, these are people who, with a certain degree of probability, are able to use the service with a gadget. Considering them as a market is stupid and reckless, but how to decrease the focus so that the probability of getting into the right audience and its quantity is confirmed by actual indicators, even at the hypothesis stage?

Our client is an emotionally excited person, but how to determine who he is and what excites him/her? And where is he/she?
When selecting countries, the following indicators were taken into account: plateau ability, solid family oriented society, social activity on different continents.
Here they are: England, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, UAE, Qatar and Switzerland What indicators clearly fit the conditions we need and are the main stimulators of emotions, making a person as open as possible, so that he can use our service?

The birth of a new person, death, terminally ill (Crayfish, Alzheimer, and others) resources such as the World Health Organization & OECD will help us with this. Tourism. When a person travels, he/she is impressed. Tourists as much as possible want to feel all emotions and extend the received pleasure. For receiving this data, we thank the UNWTO World Tourism Organization and their excellent work International Tourism Highlights 2019 Edition.

Rational thinking is disabled as a result of emotional arousal.
How many of approx. 0,5 billion people in 15 countries use smartphones? How many will be able to download an APP and become interested in our service. What to take as a basis?
We went to the streets and started a survey in different countries like China, Ukraine, Russia, the EU countries, the USA. You can watch it on our YouTube channel here. As a result, we have asked more than 1000 respondents in different countries and received the following answer. Link to all studies

Digital immortality: how to create your eternal copy The total “digitization” of the world is about to lead to the fact that people will live forever. Recreating a person will be as easy as phone book contacts

0

When I read this article, I got goosebumps. Everyone who at least watches our project a little will understand me. The article was written in 2015. The person I dream to meet now. This article has been hiding from me for 4 years. It seems that I was unprepared, probably it is. What we and the team came to in the process of introducing a startup at the end of 2019, Sergey Belousov formulated and described briefly and clearly 4 years ago.

The complete “digitization” of the world is about to lead to the fact that people will live forever. Recreating a person will be as easy as phone book contacts

Data planet

The world is rapidly moving towards becoming 100% digital. All processes in business and personal life are perceived through bits and bytes – this is not the future, but reality.

This process is easy to see in current IT trends. Cloud computing makes unlimited computing resources available to everyone and always. Everyone has mobile devices in their hands, and they are always connected to the Internet. Sociality – one of the basic human instincts – is now satisfied with social networks where people practically live. All items can now be printed on 3D printers. The world is full of robots and drones working where people used to work. Big data allows you to benefit from a huge amount of information, and artificial intelligence is becoming smarter before our eyes and makes everything around us accessible for study, practically alive.
All this leads to an explosive increase in the amount of data: an average of at least 125% per year. This means that life and work in the new digital reality need to be treated differently, and this opens up completely new possibilities.

One of the concepts currently being discussed is technological singularity. Wikipedia defines this as “a hypothetical moment after which technological progress will become so fast and complex that it will be inaccessible to understanding …”. My definition of singularity is when the digital world becomes larger and more important than the physical world. Without data, it will be impossible to live in the future in the same way that it cannot exist without water, food, air and energy. It is known that without water a person can exist for about three days. After some time, he will not be able to exist normally without digital information. This is already so for many organizations.

Tombs 2.0

The advent of the digital world has interesting implications. For example, humanity has always been preoccupied with the search for immortality. Egyptian pharaohs were mummified, along with them in the tombs were stored their things, dishes, jewelry, bodies of servants and family members, as well as a description of the life of the pharaoh in hieroglyphs and images. If you think about it, the attempts of the pharaohs were not so useless, because now you can restore a copy of their bodies from preserved DNA (for example, the DNA of Tutankhamun) and a person, at least partially, according to the others, the information in the grave.

Today, a much more complete way of human mummification has appeared – to save not only DNA, but also all its data. Indeed, consciousness most likely represents only a certain set of digital or quantum data.

One of the properties of the physical world is that everything in it is destroyed, nothing can be stored forever. But this does not apply to digital data. With some caveats, the data is eternal – you can transfer it from different types of physical types of storage to others and correct the mistakes made by time and the universe in them. This may mean, among other things, that if you have all the stored information about a person in your hands, then one day you will be able to “restore” it. Of course, there are many questions about data privacy and security, but there are no unsolvable problems.

Most likely, this should be absolutely all the data: not only personal notes, photographs, diaries, correspondence, medical records, etc., but also information about the person: memories of friends and relatives who are perceived by others. With all this data, you can make an exact digital “copy” of a person – a kind of being who will react to the outside world and behave the same way as a person with whom you can talk, ask him questions. According to the Turing test, it may be possible to “prove” that this is the right person.

If we discard moral and ethical issues, my idea can be realized now. Restoring a clone, a physical analogue of a person, using DNA is already practically possible, but there is nothing fantastic in recording and storing a very large amount of information. A person’s life probably weighs tens of terabytes, a maximum of 1 petabyte. The only question is how to “load” information into the created clone.

It is not clear what kind of data is necessary for the “correct” recovery of a unique person, and therefore it is better to save absolutely everything:

Each step, meeting, memory – there are more and more ways to “photograph” the maximum information. There are already programs that record many indicators, for example, while jogging or sleeping. In addition to his DNA, quite a lot of information remained about the same Tutankhamun: memoirs, manuscripts, etc., but it is still tens of orders of magnitude less than the data that the average owner of a smartphone stores.

In this sense, the storage and recording of information about oneself acquires not only practical, but also philosophical, metaphysical meaning. Today you have restored the contacts of your phone, and tomorrow – yourself.

GBM will take part in the international Global Silk Road Forum in Astana.

0

More than 1,600 participants from 51 countries will learn about our global project! The forum is timed not only for the 20th anniversary of the Kazakhstan capital, but also for the 5th anniversary of the “One Belt – One Way” project. The event will be held on July 2-3 and is organized by Astana akimat, G-Global International Secretariat and International Financial Center “Astana”.

The President J.P. Morgan Chase Int. Jacob Frenkel and ex-president of Bulgaria Peter Stoyanov will act as experts, speakers and moderators. We also expect the arrival of Ben Herzel, one of the developers of the Sofia – social humanoid robot. I think that Sofia’s presence will be one of the most interesting forum events.
