Distributed Human-based Genetic Algorithms What we know is that human based genetic algorithms can utilize the Darwinian process of “natural selection” to evolve a candidate solution. Human based genetic algorithms utilize the human as the selector and innovator. The data itself represents the sequence. The sequence is a data pattern. The human beings contribute data patterns such as the”unique co...

Gene therapy is now used exclusively to fix diseases, but could soon be used by transhumanists for genetic enhancement, such as augmenting one's mental faculties or improving one's physical appearance. What exactly can we modify and what are the risks involved ?
