Will the personality survive in the teleport? And if you upload it into a robot?

5 January, 2022

Sigma published discussion on the topic of the survival of the personal identity, held as part of the podcast "Not artificial Intelligence".

In philosophy, science fiction and science, fantastic scenarios of teleportation or loading consciousness into a robot are actively discussed. But it may turn out that this is a one-way trip: that a person who will travel using a teleporter will remain killed on Earth, and a similar, but already different person will arrive at the destination. Are there any principles that justify the survival of a person during teleportation or loading into a robot? Or is it a form of suicide? What does the survival of an individual in time mean? These issues were discussed by Doctor of Philosophy Vadim Vasilyev (V.V.) and Doctor of Philosophy Dmitry Volkov (D.V.) together with a researcher at the Moscow Center for Consciousness Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University Anton Kuznetsov (A.K.).
