What does it mean to be a human person?
And what will happen to society 40 years from now, when we have bionics, human-level artificial intelligence and we no longer age?
Will technology level the paying field or will humanity splinter into new species with radically different abilities and desires?
These are some of the urgent questions that preoccupy the minds of transhumanists. I’ll discuss some of the history of transhumanism, its leading thinkers, and the technologies that will radically change our civilization.
Join us with Theoretical Physicist Professor Ivan Phillips who will give us an introduction to the world of transhumanism.
