Downloading Your Consciousness Just Before Death.


This very question was brought up in Star Trek: the Next Generation's The Schizoid Man.But this not a Star Trek question.

What if just before you died, you downloaded your consciousness into a computer? Would that store data be you? And could it literally give you immortality?

I also put this in GD because I assume it's up for debate.

Thank you in advance for your kindly replies.
