Conversations about the future

Doyne Farmer: Technologies that fundamentally change who we are

We’re moving towards a singularity, as our technologies enable us to increasing modify our genetic makeup as well as augment our thoughts and our desires. This is both frightening and wonderful as these powerful new technologies have the potential to do immense good and immense bad – or both. The singularity might have similarities to what happened some 700 million years ago where single cellular organisms started to join and form multi cellular organisms. We can imagine that we merge with our technology and create a new and higher order of being.

Doyne Farmer: Teknologier der fundamentalt ændrer hvem vi er

Vi bevæger os stadig tættere på en singularitet, fordi vores teknologier i stigende grad muliggør, at vi kan ændre vores genetiske grundlag såvel som støtte vores tanker og opfylde vores ønsker. Dette er både skæmmende og vidunderligt, fordi disse magtfulde nye teknologier har potentialet til at gøre umådelig meget godt såvel som umådelig meget ondt – eller begge dele. Sigulariteten kan måske have ligheder med, hvad der skete omkring 700 millioner år tilbage, hvor encellede organismer begyndte at samarbejde for at skabe flercellede organismer. Vi kan forestille os, at vi smelter sammen med vores teknologi, og derved skaber en ny og højere ordens væren.
