The most important Transhumanist issue to me is:

I am very excited about the possibility of intelligence enhancement through the chip implants which will become available in the next decades as we uncover the brain's operating system at the very lowest levels. Specifically I look forward to having the ability to upload information and download memories -- both of which would be facilitated if we can have the internet directly inside of our heads (which I think is inevitable). I am also interested in coprocessors working with the brain which would solve problems computers excel at today. I think this is the most important transhumanist issue because it will change how we learn and what is important to remember, it will change how we connect with other people and communicate, and it will change the pace of progress like never before. Changes to the mind are the most fundamental changes to what it means to be human, and thus have the greatest potential to advance society but should accordingly be done with the utmost care.

Introduction

I'm a Computer Science and Neuroscience student currently studying at Princeton University and remotely working in a startup company in San Francisco. I am very interested in artificial intelligence and brain enhancement.
