Top 10 Transhumanist Technologies

1. Cryonics

cryonics-min

Cryonics is a  low-temperature preservation of a human body that cannot be kept alive by Contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future.

2. Virtual Reality

oculus-min

Virtual reality is immersive multimedia that creates an environment which simulates physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds and lets the user Interact in that world. Virtual  \reality artificially creates sensory experiences that can include sight, hearing, touch and smell.

3. Genetic engineering

Gene therapy replaces bad genes with good genes. RNA interference as well as CRISPR-cas9 can selectively knock out gene expression. Together, they give us an unprecedented ability to manipulate our own genetic code.

4. Space Colonization

space-colonization-min

Space colonies will become necessary to house the many billions of individuals that will be born in the future as our population and the Earth’s resources may dwindle.

5. Cyberneticshuman-evolution

Integrating humans with machines will eventually improve our everyday experience, letting us hear a wider range of ambient sounds, viewing millions of stars rather than just a few thousand, and making us more resistant to accidents.

6. Autonomous Self-Replicating Robotics

autonomous-self-replicating-robotics-min

Self-replicating factories could reduce the costs of material goods to close to that of food – the primary expenses would consist of raw materials, energy, and whatever small quantity of human oversight is necessary to keep an eye on the overall structure of things.

7. Molecular Manufacturing

molecular-manufacturing-min

Molecular nanotechnology would use massive arrays of nanometre – scale actuators [produced initially through self-replication) to manufacture macroscale products with atomic precision. This concept is known as a nanofactory.

8. Megascale Engineering

megascale-engineering-min

Building structures at least 1,000 KM in length in one dimension, such as a space elevator, Globus Cassus, or Dyson sphere.

9. Mind Uploading

mind-uploading-min

Copying mental content (including long-term memory and “self”) from a particular brain substrate and copying it to a computational device, such as the quantum-based or software-based artificial neural network.

10. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)

artificial-general-intelligence-min

Building a machine that could successfully perform any intellectual task that a human being can. Thinking, feeling, imagining, creating, communicating, thoughtful synthetic intelligences with conscious experience.
