I think it’s important that IEET publishes articles like this alongside the more futuristic and philosophical pieces. I love reading about the wonders of the future but we mustn’t forget that there are present day real-world problems that need solutions now. That these solutions are often less eye-catching than the technological hopes and fears articles doesn’t of course detract from their importance. We need to be reminded that sometimes solutions come from a relatively low-tech hands-on approach and that we don’t need to wait for robots, mind uploading, the singularity or artificial intelligence, etc. to be able to do something now.
