This category includes posts about the effects of digital immortality on the various industries of the world. Not every industry is looked into, but we have included a post in the industry tag if it talks about industrial growth or decline as a direct or indirect result of uploading brains to digital form.

We think the main industries to be affected will be healthcare, as digital beings will not need it, food industries, as digital beings will not need to eat and probably won’t be able to ingest or taste any food, and consumer goods due to the vastly different needs of digital and biological beings.

There will, of course, be new industries to arise, such as artificial body production and customisation, fully integrated/ simulated reality software development and infrastructure deployment to support a transition to a digitised world. Many other industries will also have to transition but would be unlikely to disappear unless with very low innovation.
