Our transhuman future: Is it time for humans to upgrade ourselves?
From reprogramming our immune system with mRNA to editing our genes with CRISPR, and eventually increasing our intelligence by connecting our brains to computers, technology is already upgrading humanity.
We are living longer and smarter as we increasingly merge ourselves with technology, and the lines blur on what makes us human. Transhumanism is the concept of overcoming the limits of human biology with science and technology. Alyse will talk about how we are already upgrading ourselves and the technology that will make that happen in the next 5-10 years.
