The politics of crime-fighting software by Marcelo Rinesi

Call it machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, or simply computational intelligence: countries are rushing to apply new technologies to combat crimes, but how they do so — and even what counts as crime — varies among them, and says much about their societies, priorities, and future.

Must A Human Be An Ape?  The Ultimate Problem of Self-Classification by Steve Fuller

How humans came to descend from apes The Oxford English Dictionaries define ‘human’ in three ways, which are listed in the following order: (1) whatever distinguishes people from God, animals and machines; (2) whenever people behave in a highly desirable fashion; (3) whoever is a member of the genus Homo. These are really quite different definitions. The first has the greatest conceptual clarity, but its clarity is limited to the realm of the conceptual. Making that definition work in practice is diabolical. The second is unclear in both...

The Future of the European Union by Tsvi Bisk

The present crises of the EU (70 years after its creation) are in large part a consequence of absorbing three former fascist countries (Greece, Portugal and Spain) and eleven former communist countries, whose economies, standards of living and political cultures lagged behind the 13 more politically and economically advanced countries. The internal migrations towards a better standard of living from the 14 to the 13, in addition to the refugee crisis, have been major contributors to the dissatisfactions that led to Brexit as well as the rise...

Edgist generation. Towards a transhumanist subculture? The manifesto. by Pedro Villanueva

I’m a fan of the movie Back to the future of the second part and when we talk about subcultures like Hipster, Neo-Hippies, Rave, Indie, etc. I noticed that something was missing to create a very different new subculture in the current generation, since we are in the year 2017. This manifesto I write is to create a more complete subculture in the youth according to our time. And frankly the movie Back to the future is almost prophetic and fits more in the present times. The name Edgist is similar to edge which refers to a new subculture...

This Smartphone Pioneer Is Fighting to Create a Transhumanist Superdemocracy Inverse

David Wood, a man that helped revolutionize communication in the early days of the smart phone, now wants to make the government smarter too. The British transhumanist helped pioneer today’s smartphone industry when he co-founded mobile operating system developer Symbian in 1998, and now he’s calling for changes that would radically rethink how people and politicians interact.

Is Transhumanism A Religion? by John G. Messerly

Transhumanism is an intellectual movement that aims to transform and improve the human condition by developing and making available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physiological, and moral functioning. Transhumanists argue that humanity in its current form represents an early phase of its evolutionary development. A common transhumanist thesis is that humans may eventually transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities that they will have become godlike or posthuman. Notably, this incl...

Le transhumanisme est-il vieux comme le monde ? by EMG

Vouloir transgresser les limites de la biologie humaine, pour vivre beaucoup plus longtemps en bonne santé par exemple, n’est pas quelque chose de nouveau. En fait, ce désir est aussi ancien que l’humanité - un désir presque primordial, enfantin (sans connotation négative), viscéral, comme celui de voler.
