Vernor Vinge wrote about the technological singularity: â€œWithin thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.â€ The Transhuman debate is alive and well with lively discussion on techno-utopia, life-extension, super-intelligence, immortality, and virtual bodies. Recent films such as Lucy, Transcendence, Elysium, Ex Machina and others touch on the debate. Ray Kurzweil extols a Transhumanist future of immortals free of diseaseâ€”perhaps even of biology. And what about those who may be left behind? Join the debate. Will you be a MOSH?
