Human Enhancement

As the first organisms of this planet evolved into forms that were completely unforeseeable as they emerged from the oceans, humans might also have a future radically different from everything that seems today so inevitably belonging to human nature. Even though neither philosophy nor science can predict the future, it might be not only fascinating, but also critical for our survival to explore the consequences of eugenic enhancement technologies, as well as the promises and threats involved in the rise of artificial intelligence.
