Should supporters of transhumanism be worried about the treatment of this philosophy in his new book? The question is especially pertinent, since ‘Inferno’ is likely to provide many millions of readers with their first exposure to transhumanism.
An impromptu video recording of Nanotech founder father Eric Drexler appearing May 30th at the MeetUp of the London Futurists
This event marks the publication of the eagerly-anticipated book,”Radical Abundance: How a Revolution In Nanotechnology Will Change Civilization”, by K. Eric Drexler, the founding father of nanotechnology.
London Futurists are very fortunate that the lead editor of this book, Amnon Eden, will be presenting a summary of some key arguments about Singularity hypotheses, in our meeting on 11th May. He will be joined as a speaker by David Pearce, who has been actively involved behind the scenes in the planning of the book, and who contributed two articles in the book.
Robots ran obstacle courses, climbed through a honeycomb of compartments, tested their vision and soaked themselves in simulated rainstorms. Those were just a few of the demonstrations today at the opening of the most advanced robotics testing facility in the nation, the New England Robotics Validation and Experimentation Center, located at UMass Lowell.
Human life expectancy increases by 7 hours per day, every day.
