In this short video from last year's FutureMed, Aubrey de Grey of the SENS Foundation talks about aging and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's and cardiovascular diseases. He approaches the issues of aging from a different paradigm: not as a certainty that we have all must someday go through and accept, but as a biological problem with a scientific cure.

Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI

Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI | Futurism Today | Scoop.it
With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence (IA).

Improvement in IA rests upon progress in nano-manufacturing. Brain-computer interface engineers, like Ed Boyden at MIT, depend upon improvements in manufacturing to build these devices. Manufacturing is the linchpin on which everything else depends. Given that there is very little development of atomically-precise manufacturing technologies, nanoscale self-assembly seems like the most likely route to million-electrode brain-computer interfaces. Nanoscale self-assembly is not atomically precise, but it's precise by the standards of bulk manufacturing and photolithography.
