Great Read on the Future of Human Physical and Cognitive Development: Exponential Growth Will Transform Humanity in the Next 30 Years (Peter Diamandis)

Today’s extraordinary rate of exponential growth may do much more than just disrupt industries. It may actually give birth to a new species, reinventing humanity over the next 30 years.

I believe we’re rapidly heading towards a human-scale transformation, the next evolutionary step into what I call a “Meta-Intelligence,” a future in which we are all highly connected—brain to brain via the cloud—sharing thoughts, knowledge and actions. In this post, I’m investigating the driving forces behind such an evolutionary step, the historical pattern we are about to repeat, and the implications thereof. Again, I acknowledge that this topic seems far-out, but the forces at play are huge and the implications are vast. Let’s dive in…

3D Printed Organs and the Super-Fast Hyperloop: Dubai is Accelerating the Future (Jolene Creighton)

In the 1960s, humanity was largely confined to planet Earth. In fact, most people were confined to their own home cities—even just communicating with someone on the other side of the globe was a trial, say nothing about traversing the distance yourself.

But fast-forward 50 years, and the world is an entirely different place.High-speed internet lets us have a seamless (and instantaneous) face-to-face conversation with people who are quite literally on the other side of the world. Planes are so readily available and flights so cheap that it is possible for most anyone to get a ticket and land on the other side of the planet that same day. Even autonomous cars are (slowly) becoming ubiquitous. And of course, man has walked on the Moon…

According to Kazuo Ishiguro we will soon be able to create Humans who are superior to other Humans (June Javelosa)

According to Kazuo Ishiguro, there are three areas of science that are set to transform how we live and interact with others over the next few decades: gene editing, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI).Ishiguro, granted, is best known as one of the most celebrated fiction writers today. He is behind the novel Never Let Me Go, the story of a dystopian future where humans are cloned to be organ donors. But the possibility of a future so fundamentally changed by scientific advancements could be more than the fruit of the author’s creativity and imagination…

Cyborg World: How Biohacking Will (and Already Is) Changing Everything (Michelle Lee)

In a presentation titled “Biohacking and the Connected Body” at the Singularity University Global Summit, Hannes Sjoblad, co-founder of the Sweden-based biohacker networkBionyfiken, stated that we likely encounter ‘cyborgs’ on a daily basis without knowing it.

The modern cyborgs we see today include pacemakers, smart insulin monitors, bionic eyes, and robotic arms and legs. These ‘biohacks’ are helping people with disabilities get more from life than ever before. Sjoblad notes this biohacking is utterly reshaping our world, and it will continue to do so. He explains, “we live in a time where, thanks to technology, we can make the deaf hear, the blind see, and the lame walk….

The combination of Human and Artificial Intelligence will define Humanity’s future (Bryan Johnson)

Through the past few decades of summer blockbuster movies and Silicon Valley products, artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly familiar and sexy, and imbued with a perversely dystopian allure.

What’s talked about less, and has also been dwarfed in attention and resources, is human intelligence (HI).

In its varied forms — from the mysterious brains of octopuses and the swarm-minds of ants to Go-playing deep learning machines and driverless-car autopilots — intelligence is the most powerful and precious resource in existence. Our own minds are the most familiar examples of a phenomenon characterized by a great deal of diversity…
