‘Imaginaries of Immortality in the Age of AI: An Intercultural Analysis’

Principal Investigator

In recent years, the impact of AI on our attitudes to death and immortality have gained immense significance across technological and economic domains. While the design and implementation of systems promising a digital afterlife can have far-reaching global consequences, they are currently discussed almost exclusively within an Anglophone Western context. Katarzyna Nowaczyk-Basińska’s AI2050 project aims to investigate perceptions of digital immortality in three eastern countries assessing their alignment with local interests and exploring diverse cultural imaginaries related to AI-driven immortality concepts. It will conduct three intercultural workshops with experts and non-experts to frame digital immortality within a context of diversity.

‘Immortality. Technocultural Strategies of Contemporary Times’

Project Leader

My work aims to analyze the impact of advanced technologies (primarily artificial intelligence) on the concept of immortality in Western culture alongside the social and cultural shifts caused by the ever-expanding understanding of techno-immortality over the last two decades. As part of my scholarship, I started cooperation with the Leverhulme Center for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge, and I am conducting my research under the scientific supervision of Professor Stephen Cave.
