I don't know if it's a good or bad thing, but soon you'll be able to "live forever" through the latest type of social media. With this site, you will be able to store away your habits, emotions and personality so it can be accessed years later after you're gone.

Martine Rothblatt, founder of United Therapeutics, created this new type of online neural network that is able to "upload" and store your personality forever. This state-of-the-art site is called Lifenaut and it uses a variety of techniques to create a virtual representation of who you are.

Lifenaut uses a combination of personality tests and social media data to create an accurate digital avatar of you! Rothblatt and his team are working round the clock to be able to transfer human personalities to walking, talking robots. These personality profiles are being called "mindfiles" and are meant to preserve your unique digital reflections and opinions.

He even created a mindfile for his wife over 30 years ago and now has a robot that shares her personality. Her beliefs, memories and emotions were uploaded onto Lifenaut and now the robot he calls Bina48 can use this information to hold a conversation and react instinctively.
