NEW YORK (AP) — Can the City That Never Sleeps become the City That Never Dies? A Russian multimillionaire thinks so.

Dmitry Itskov gathered some of humanity's best brains — and a few robots — in New York City Saturday to discuss how humans can get their minds to outlive their bodies. Itskov has an aggressive timetable in which he'd like to see that goal met. By 2045, he wants brains that can control insubstantial, hologram bodies.

Some at the Global Future 2045 in New York City presented futuristic robots, while others at the event questioned whether some of Itskov's vision could come true.
