Visions of the Future - The Biotech Revolution (Video)


Genetics and biotechnology promise a future of unprecedented health and longevity: DNA screening could prevent many diseases, gene therapy could cure them and, thanks to lab-grown organs, the human body could be repaired as easily as a car, with spare parts readily available. Ultimately, the ageing process itself could be slowed down or even halted.

Leading theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku looks at the revolution in genetics and biotechnology, which promises unprecedented health and longevity but also raises the spectre of a Frankenstein future of genetically engineered people. Will we, as transhumanists expect, evolve into a new species? Dr Kaku warns that we may end up in a world divided by genetic apartheid.

One of the main ideas at the heart of this is the notion of the "singularity", the point at which technology can imitate a human mind. Whole lot of ideas that come with that, some of them are pretty interesting. Look up "Chinese room".

Stopping aging is a big one. We won't have to suffer the cruel degeneration of the body but I wonder how the human mind will handle stress over a thousand year or more.
