This article is a shorter version of a paper I wrote in July, 2019, which loosely coincides with the five-year anniversary of the publication of my book, A Taxonomy and Metaphysics of Mind-Uploading. The book presents a wide range of thought experiments about mind uploading and then conveys my preferred model of identity, commonly known as branching identity.

Pan-genomics! Let’s get real-world here. Graphs are just the start. by Brian Hanley

I work with human DNA pathological variants and gene therapy. To me, the current pangenome effort and friends is mostly an academic exercise that won’t matter. Yes, we know that FASTA is limited, but we can combine FASTA files and look at these differences. I do like what Erik and friends have done, and pangenomics is interesting.

Beyond Humanism: Emerging Technologies and African Futures by Leo Igwe

Beyond Humanism highlights the philosophical implications of emerging technologies. And any one who is deeply concerned about improving the human conditions needs to pay attention to discourses on critical transhumanism and post humanism. The consequences of emerging technologies on the lives and prospects of Africans cannot be overemphasized because these technologies have the potential of radically transforming the life worlds.
