Nano: Short Film Explores Future of Nanotech and its Legal Repercussions Serious Wonder

In the near future, nanotechnology administered into the bloodstream can sync with computer apps to augment the human genome. A new law mandating and regulating this once elective procedure meets resistance from hacktivists who are conspiring to thwart the impending roll-out of “Nano version 2.0.”

Aujourd’hui tous travailleurs… demain tous créateurs? by Alexandre Maurer

Lors de la révolution industrielle, dans de nombreux métiers, nos bras ont été remplacés par des machines. Nous nous sommes donc tourné vers des métiers où nous utilisons notre cerveau.

Aujourd’hui, avec les progrès fulgurants de l’intelligence artificielle, c’est notre cerveau qui pourrait être, à son tour, remplacé. Des intelligences artificielles diagnostiquent déjà des cancers mieux que des cancérologues, remplacent des assureurs dans des compagnies d’assurance, conduisent des voitures de façon autonome…...

On Voter Fraud, Immigration, and Economic Disparity by David Brin

== The New “Voter Fraud” Commission ==

Sauver le symbole by Marc Roux

Nous pouvons nous accorder avec certains critiques du transhumanisme pour dire que la convergence NBIC met en question notre rapport au langage et aux symboles. Or, il est probable qu’ils contribuent à ce qui fait émerger l’humain. Une pensée transhumaniste peut-elle relever ce défi ? Le symbolisme s’évanouira-t-il dans nos machines computationnelles ?

Don’t Impeach! Plus appraising GOP proposed legislation—and why is he really in Saudi Arabia? by David Brin

I had prepped a missive appraising GOP legislative proposals… but it seems we must always lead with the latest, daily crises. With some Republicans already murmuring about impeachment and getting all moony-eyed toward the notion of “President Pence,” let me repeat what I’ve said for a year now.

That’s the title of a new article I have coming out. It argues that the creation of artificial offspring could add meaning to our lives and that it might consequently be worth committing to the project of doing so. It’s going to be published in the journal Science and Engineering Ethics. The official version will be out in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can read the abstract below and download a pre-publication version at the links provided.

Frequently Asked Questions on the Ethics of Lifespan and Healthspan Extension by Ilia Stambler

The mission of healthy life extension, or healthy longevity promotion, raises a broad variety of questions and tasks, relating to science and technology, individual and communal ethics, and public policy, especially health and science policy. Despite the wide variety, the related questions may be classified into three groups. The first group of questions concerns the feasibility of the accomplishment of life extension. Is it theoretically and technologically possible? What are our grounds for optimism? What are the means to ensure that the l...
