AGI is number 1!

Interesting article on the Lifeboat Foundation website about top-ten transhumanist technologies:

Top Ten Tranhumanist Technologies

Ooh, the alliteration 🙂 I notice that AGI is at number 1. Let’s hope that we can actually work towards a good definition of AGI and solve some foundational issues along the way to keep it up there! Interestingly I think a few of these technologies have interesting crossovers, such as virtual reality, mind uploading and cybernetics. The more we advance progress in technology, the more these disciplines will become indistinguishable.

Anyway, I think this is a nice article as it gives an introduction to many of the things that transhumanists talk about over coffee and cake (or water and fruit if you are a Paleo).

    Personally, I’m still rooting for Molecular Manufacturing and Space Colonization… But that is just me. 😉
