Le transhumanisme n’est pas un «eugénisme libéral» by Marc Roux

Pour essayer de sortir de la condamnation systématique associant le transhumanisme à l’eugénisme, notamment totalitaire, certains ont proposé de le décrire comme un “eugénisme libéral”. Mais, au sens strict, le transhumanisme démocratique n’est pas un eugénisme du tout.

The mystical underpinnings of Facebook’s anti-fake news algorithms by Marcelo Rinesi

Imagine you’re Rene Descartes, data scientist at Facebook in charge of saying true things. Problem is, your only input is what people say, and everybody lies.

Roland Benedikter Discusses Rights in a Post-Human World Cato Unbound

I agree with Rachel that the future of “serious” AI to be branded as such in the strict sense is still (far) ahead, as I have already stated in my lead essay. And I appreciate Rachel’s notion of “general intelligence” to be applied on the upcoming debates on rights for non-human “intelligence” within modern democracies. I regard this notion to be a potential “added value” to a more in-depth debate which hasn’t been taken into consideration sufficiently yet, at least in current Europe. Yet concrete legal proposal options o...

Superman: The Last Son of Prague by Marcelo Rinesi

Besides everything else, today Superman is an almost satirically strict exemplar of what a “good” immigrant has to look like: if you can pass as a white able-bodied heterosexual male, were raised in a small Kansas farm, got a prestigious job in a traditional professional field, and save the world two or a hundred times, then you, too, might be accepted (or shot at on sight on account of what a scared cop or soldier thought you might conceivably do, that might happen too). But he was originally something far uncannier and politica...

Cyber-weapons as a form of magic, and why we can’t code our way to a safer internet by Marcelo Rinesi

Beyond Technological Singularity-the Posthuman Condition Postmodern Openings

In the transmodern context, transhumanism appears as a new paradigm, with a centripetal tendency, which proposes the reinventing of man by overcoming the current biological limitations with the help of new technologies, so called human amelioration. In our work, we want to discuss in a speculative manner the possibility of the existence of the posthuman individual in the biological and moral (self) transcendence of the self. We will discuss a series of technologies capable of irreversibly modifying the human condition by placing humanity fir...
