Eric Schmidt, le patron de Google, et Jared Cohen, le directeur de Google Ideas, nous promettent dans leur livre commun, The New Digital Age, un meilleur des mondes numérique. Le problème, c'est Google qui parle... avec une grande naïveté, une ambition commerciale insatiable et une tendance à prendre les désirs pour la réalité.

Les fils d’Héphaïstos

Depuis la naissance du système solaire il y a 4,5 milliards d’années, des mutations de tous ordres se sont enchaînées, sans jamais s’arrêter. Nous ne sommes pourtant qu’à la moitié de notre histoire, l’implosion du soleil étant prévue dans 4 milliards d’années. À quoi ressemblerons-nous d’ici là ? A un homme « augmenté » ou « réparable à l’infini »? À quelles nouvelles mutations devons-nous nous attendre ? Quels problèmes cela pose-t-il en terme de droit et d’éthique ? Comment allons-nous nous adapter au changement climatique et à la crise des énergies fossiles ? Quel habitat, quelle nourriture seront à notre disposition ? Quelle agriculture et quel modèle économique peut-on envisager ? Serons-nous obligés de vivre sur d’autres planètes ?

Les Post-Sapiens sont le résultat de formes émergentes se dégageant petit à petit des multiples avatars que l’homme adopte de nos jours, du fait notamment de l’influence qu’exerce sur son évolution les nouvelles sciences et technologies.

The strange world of computer-generated novels

It’s November and aspiring writers are plugging away at their novels for National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, an annual event that encourages people to churn out a 50,000-word book on deadline. But a hundred or so people are taking a very different approach to the challenge, writing computer programs that will write their texts for them. It’s called NaNoGenMo, for National Novel Generation Month, and the results are a strange, often funny look at what automatic text generation can do.

A Stanford University Debate: Transhumanism vs. Anarcho-Primitivism

A Stanford University Debate: Transhumanism vs. Anarcho-Primitivism | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
At Stanford University, I had the honor of publicly debating the world's leading anarcho-primitivist philosopher John Zerzan. As a transhumanist, I differ from Zerzan on just about every topic. According to Wikipedia, anarcho-primitivism "advocates for a return to a non-'civilized' way of life through deindustrialization." Transhumanism advocates for the continued use of science and technology to improve and change the human species. Simply put, Zerzan encourages everyone to give up civilization and go back to a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. And I encourage everyone to do more to speed up technological and scientific progress. It was a meeting of polar opposite views. The debate headline was: Zoltan vs. Zerzan.

Transvision 2014, the Technoprogressive Declaration, & the ISF | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
I have just returned from attending the Transvision 2014 (TV14) conference in Paris, co-hosted by AFT (L’Association Française Transhumaniste) Technoprog!, fiXience, & Traces (ESPCI ParisTech), at the Espace des Sciences Pierre-Gilles de Gennes. I found this to be a particularly successful, interesting, and invigorating conference. The meeting’s theme was “Transhumanism Faces the Social Question”, which is of course a collision of worlds very much at the heart of the Social Futurist worldview.
