The value for you as an enterprise leader

This is the most important question that we will have to answer in this century.

In the last few million years, technology (from stone age tools to computers) has been an enabler for us to lead better lives (i.e lifestyles) and have improved life spans (i.e health). While some technologies have made their way into the human body such as pacemakers, metallic joints, hip replacements, knee replacements, cataracts, etc, most of these technologies have been incremental changes that fix us.

So far, technology has influenced lifestyle, but going forward, technology will shape the definition of a human being.

In the last few years, a suite of new technology breakthroughs are emerging that are going to raise some important questions about how humans will evolve. These technologies are not just enablers but fundamental game changers that will modify what it means to be a human being. They can lead to stronger, faster, more intelligent, more agile and non-terrestrial humans. While some of these technologies exist, some are conceptual.

With gene editing, mind uploading, exoskeletons, general artificial intelligence, non-biological reproduction and martian living, the definition of what it means to be human will be a leading question in this century.

Here we capture 10 such technologies that you will want to keep your eyes on

  1. Gene editing (CRISPR)
  2. General artificial intelligence (AGI)
  3. Exoskeletons
  4. Neuralink
  5. Mind Uploading with Nectome (Y Combinator)
  6. Journey to Mars
  7. Mind-Mind Communication
  8. 3d Printing Organs
  9. Ectolife
  10. Living Robots
