Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether?

The Growth of Knowledge

AI takes the knowledge explosion to its pinnacle. Combined with machines and biotechnology, it will alter what it means to be human.

What will our cognitive existence be like in 20, 50, and 100 years?

Where we’re heading: an evolutionary transition on a scale like the planet experienced from early hominids 2 million years ago to us today.

Plugging Into Your Brain

Billions of dollars have been poured into three areas of research: neuroprosthetics, brain-computer interfaces and optogenetics.

The Ultimate Interface: Your Brain

The final frontier of digital technology is integrating into your own brain. DARPA wants to go there. Scientists want to go there.

Unlearning May be our Biggest Challenge

Alvin Toffler was right, continuous learning is the hallmark of our future as humans – but to relearn, we must unlearn.

A Case for Neural Augmentation

There is little reluctance to consider implants for somebody who is paralysed or has lost a limb. So what about implants in normal people?

The combination of human and artificial intelligence will define humanity’s future

Now, through the combination of HI and AI, we are at the brink of the most consequential technological development of our time, and in history.

The Urgency of Cognitive Improvement

The future of the human race depends upon our ability to learn how to read and write our neural code.

Rebooting the Brain

The single greatest thing we can do as species is to work on our adaptability, our ability to evolve and adapt to this change.
