AI and transhumanism

AI and transhumanism

85%
OF INDUSTRIAL TASKS WILL DISAPPEAR BECAUSE OF AUTOMATION* * ACCORDING TO GARTNER INC

Artificial intelligence is infiltrating the deepest levels of living beings. Compartmentalising disciplines, industries and technologies no longer has its place, and is giving way to an era of interdisciplinarity, hybridisation and convergence. The world is shifting towards a new form of medicine that is predictive rather than curative, as before, and based on fusing multiple technologies (electronic, digital imaging, 3D printing, genomics, AI, blockchain, robotics, etc.) and that signals the end of suffering, the death of death. However, dying is part of life.

Transhumanism brings a new issue to existential questions. Technologies applied to humans satisfy basic needs as well as personal fulfilment needs. This calls into question the whole Maslow pyramid. Notion of autonomy and dependence: am I still human if I have an implant? Am I still autonomous, master of my own free will if I depend on a tool and if my most personal information is shared?

Technologies iron out our imperfections and push our limits, with the risk that we might all become identical products, with no distinguishing features at all. There is a strong divide between the new types of augmented populations with which we have to deal, and the profound and visceral need to remain oneself, and to retain one’s own identity.
