Singularity 1 on 1: Interrogate and Engage the World



Dr. James Hughes

Singularity 1 on 1

Posted: Nov 12, 2012


Interview with James Hughes on Singularity 1 on 1
“During our conversation with Dr. Hughes we cover a wide variety of topics such as: what is the IEET and what does it do; the story behind James’ interest in technology, policy, philosophy and bio/ethics; why transhumanist atheists are often drawn to Buddhism; his first book Citizen Cyborg and his upcoming Cyborg Buddha; transhumanism and his definition thereof; whether optimism is rational; the impact of artificial intelligence on transhumanism; James’ take on the technological singularity and our chances of surviving it; the benefits of biology; moral enhancement and animal uplift.” - Socrates of Singularity 1 on 1
