Should I have let my daughter marry our robot?

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transhumanism

Here’s my newest #transhumanism article from Metro; a very personal story:


At aged five, she announced she was in love with the robot and wanted to marry it.

My wife and I set up a mock wedding and filmed it. It was all good fun until my wife asked how I’d feel if my daughter wanted to do this as an adult with a robot she loved.

“The Transhumanist wishlist” – what genes can be enhanced to give us super abilities

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, transhumanism

On the Transhumanist Wishlist by Prof George Church, or the genes we have to change to enhance the human body and mind, a new post.


Here are some selections from the so-called Transhumanist Wishlist, drawing upon the philosophical movement of transhumanism that calls for using technology to enhance human physiology and intellect, leading to a transformation of what it means to be human:

The Futurist New Deal For America

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, geopolitics, transhumanism

An introduction to by Johannon Ben Zion candidate for President of the US Transhumanist Party.


US Transhumanist Party candidate for President, Johannon Ben Zion has a futurist new deal for America. This concept stoked my interest when I was listening to the debate between all of the US Transhumanist Party candidates. I wanted more information on this concept and Johannon Ben Zion was kind enough to forward this information to me.

How close are we to achieving the transhumanism seen in ‘Years and Years’?

Posted by in category: transhumanism

As Mark O’Connell points out in his book To Be a Machine, the leading figures in our tech industry – from Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel to Google CEO Eric Schmidt – are resolute that we will live in “a future in which techno-capitalism will survive its own inventors”. Sooner rather than later, it seems, the next update to worry about will be which part of our body to integrate with the newest technology. Just ask Bethany Lyons.


A new study suggests the bridge between human and machine is closing faster than we thought.

Electronic chip mimics the brain to make memories in a flash

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, genetics, robotics/AI, transhumanism

Researchers from RMIT University have drawn inspiration from optogenetics, an emerging tool in biotechnology, to develop a device that replicates the way the brain stores and loses information. Optogenetics allows scientists to delve into the body’s electrical system with incredible precision, using light to manipulate neurons so that they can be turned on or off.

The new is based on an ultra-thin material that changes electrical resistance in response to different wavelengths of light, enabling it to mimic the way neurons work to store and delete information in the brain. Research team leader Dr. Sumeet Walia said the technology has applications in (AI) technology that can harness the brain’s full sophisticated functionality.

“Our optogenetically-inspired chip imitates the fundamental biology of nature’s best computer—the human brain,” Walia said. “Being able to store, delete and process information is critical for computing, and the brain does this extremely efficiently. We’re able to simulate the brain’s neural approach simply by shining different colors onto our chip. This technology takes us further on the path towards fast, efficient and secure light-based computing. It also brings us an important step closer to the realization of a bionic brain—a brain-on-a-chip that can learn from its environment just like humans do.”
