[Video] Humanity’s Future Challenges: Bio-tech, AI and Robotics

In this video, Michael Cross, author of the “Freedom from Conscience” book series and host of UCY-TV’s “Unlock the Door” discusses technologies that will begin to merge in a big way in the 2030s and 2040s and how they will impact on our very concept of what a human is. Topics include how robots will take over a significant proportion on the labor market very soon and what people can do to prepare for this; how bio-technology will allow us to design our children, how nano-technology may make it possible for us to modify ourselves (allowing us to expand our lifespan or even change our gender) and also if, and when, humans begin to modify their bodies with mechanical substitutes how this will impact on our self-concept as well as pose real ethical questions.
