Project Cyborg

The term transhumanism refers to the endeavor to overcome the biological limits of humans through science and technology. This includes technologies such as brain-computer interfaces, exoskeletons, genetic manipulation, cryonics, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and nanotechnology. It is hoped that this will generally im- prove the quality of life, e.g. by improving physical and cognitive abilities. Many conspiracy theorists, however, fear that these new technologies, whether intentionally or unintentionally, will lead us into a dystopian future where humanity is dominated or enslaved by machines and AI. Even respected scientists now caution against the unchecked progress of AI: Developers are already finding it difficult to fully understand or control their own programs.
