  1. yea, even if you have a college degree, if it isn't a STEM degree, you will be replaced, and even with a STEM degree, you will be replaced but at a lower replacement rate. But the cyborgs will weaponize themselves and there will be a brief 20 year war until either the trans-humans are gone, or the humans are gone, or the humans concede to become the slaves. Sugar coat that !

  2. What makes us feel good? the inner feel? pizza? Lamborghini or artificial intelligence? the human eye just goes on keep looking. I want all of it. 😀 also i'm just looking for a place to arrange it beautifully and drive it carefully.

  3. The book about Evolution by EW Mayr, is a comprehensive explanation of the pooling of genetic diversity in populations that adapt as a whole by carrying many combinations of genes at any one time, like a library reference system that various situations "select" for what may be only a slowly cumulative advantage. Ie individuals rarely carry the cost or benefit to the population on their own.
    Brains are totally integrated biology, and their purpose is to extend situations by experience and synthesize alternative possible choices. Technology is the hardware of techniques and is another part of the brain's repetoir. It's equally good or bad at devising scenarios that adapt or fail.

  4. Will we still be ourselves after <time period, situation, technology>? – Simply put, no.
    Even if you sit in your closet with your eyes closed, the essence of what is "you" is constantly changing.
    How? Well, now you've had the experience of sitting in your closet today. It may not be much input, but it is still added to the collective experiences that forms your conscious being.
    Ok, but what if you're in a coma for <time period> you certainly don't "experience" anything. Right but then you wake up, and while your mind may not have progressed your body did.

    Other than going with Sci-Fi scenarios that don't currently exist in our lives, like being frozen in Carbonite or being put into Suspended Animation, there is nothing you can do to keep change from happening. Change is part of life. Change is part of your humanity. How did you treat the opposite sex when you were a kid (Eww <girls/boys> have cooties, Yuck!) and now … well not so yucky. Your opinions change, your knowledge changes. You get a bit of new information, or maybe have a chemical trigger go off in your brain and the essence of what is YOU changes, ever so slightly.

    The Core of what makes you "you" is not a static element or fixed point. Therefore to wonder if emerging technology is going to change "what it is to be You" on a fundamental level is pointless.

  5. Tara – I am excited to meet you in November at the Neuroscience and Leadership course at MIT. Your work factors centrally to the science embedded in the AI human behavior learning and insight network and platform I'm pioneering with co-founders Jay van Zyl, Laura Hansen, and Jeannie Kim-Han.
