Substrate-independent minds (SIM) are minds that are able to operate on many different hardware platforms — not just a neural substrate.
There are at least two ways to successfully create a substrate-independent mind: implementing a mind in a synthetic neural system or transferring the existing characteristic information — and the functions that process that information — from a specific mind into an implementation that operates in another substrate.
The goals of SIM research is not only to be able to move the content of a brain to external hardware platforms, but also to repair damages and, ultimately, to enhance brain capabilities, so to create what is called life expansion.
