Augmented Machines and Augmented Humans are converging VI

Human Augmentation There are basically three ways to augment humans: Modifying the genotype Modifying the phenotype Modifying the extended phenotype As individual we inherit the genotype (the set of our genes contained in our chromosomes, each of us has 22 pairs of chromosomes –autosomes- plus the sex chromosomes, either X-X, …

Integrated Visual Augmentation System(s)

At the end of November 2018 Microsoft has won a 480 million $ two year contract to create a virtual environment for US Army soldiers based on Hololens technology that may result in the use of 100,000 VR headsets by US Army to train soldiers, rehearse the battle field before …

3D printing bionic organs

Integrating electronics in biological systems is a sort of holy grail of research, aiming at leveraging the best from artificial and natural evolution. This was the starting point in the setting up of the Symbiotic Autonomous Systems Initiative and was also part of the Digital Senses Initiative now morphed into …

SAS Delphi results – Symbiotic Autonomous Systems

Area 9 – Symbiotic Autonomous Systems The symbioses of life forms and artefacts, human and machines looks like the inevitable evolution, made possible by technology advances, by economic drive and by the increase of wellbeing through augmentation. The separation between ourselves and our artifacts is getting fuzzier as artifacts achieve …

SAS Delphi results – Augmented Humans

Area 3- Augmented Humans Bio-engineering and smart materials are converging in creating implants that can monitor life functions and expand life functionality, like eye implants first designed to recover sight might eventually provide 10x sight capability and extend human sight in the ultraviolet/infrared range (and beyond). DNA and RNA engineering …

Transhumanism: Evolving the Human Body III

2. Enhanced Sensing A lot of research is ongoing to meet the needs of impaired people who lost completely or partially some of their sense capabilities, be it hearing, seeing, touching, smelling and tasting (the order reflects both the investment and the results obtained so far). Most of the results …

Transhumanism: Evolving the Human Body II

Human augmentation is a form of evolution that our species has taken in its own hands and it is not going to be stopped. Eventually it might end up in the creation of a new species through bio-engineering that modifies the genome. We are still far from that although the …
