Bina 48

Social robot (US)

BINA48 is a black, female-presenting advanced social robot and ambassador for the multi-decade mind uploading experiment in AI and cyber-consciousness LifeNaut project. She was created in the image of Bina Rothblatt, the real-life wife of biotech entrepreneur, Terasem Movement founder Dr. Martine Rothblatt using 100 hours of the real Bina’s beliefs, memories, attitudes, commentary and mannerisms. Bruce Duncan, M.Ed. Director of the Terasem Movement Foundation and Principal Investigator of the Lifenaut Project will join BINA48 to introduce her and describe current progress of the experiment.
