Is the use of human-animal hybrids to resolve the perpetual lack of organs for transplant the right thing to do?
There is no risk-free way to proceed into the future. In the end, only science and technology properly applied have the power to save us.
The inflection point at which computers, ‘thinking machines’ and AI may become infinitely powerful is no more than 20–25 years away.
Counter intuitively, the primary obstacles are not technical. Rather it is government inaction, in both funding and regulation.

The building blocks to both enhance and/or diminish humanity are there – it’s a question of how we as a society manage this exponential world.
The number of potentially valuable building blocks is exploding around the world, and the possibilities are multiplying like never before.
As with everything in life, our path forward requires balance: enabling the good, while mitigating the risk of unintended consequences.
Science and technology are converging in a way that makes even the most ridiculous sounding scenario viable - and at great speed.
