TED Talk: Are we ready for neo-evolution?
Medical ethicist Harvey Fineberg shows us three paths forward for the ever-evolving human species: to stop evolving completely, to evolve naturally — or to control the next steps of human evolution, using genetic modification, to make ourselves smarter, faster, better. Neo-evolution is within our grasp. What will we do with it?
Harvey Fineberg studies medical decisionmaking — from how we roll out new medical technology, to how we cope with new illnesses and threatened epidemics.
