This seminar is hosted by Balliol Collge

Speaker: Dr Anders Sandberg, James Martin Fellow, Future of Humanity Institute

Summary: Various methods of enhancing humans - making us smarter, happier, living longer or adding new abilities - exist, are in the research pipeline or look like plausible possibilities in the not too distant future. This talk will examine human enhancement from a positive philosophy perspective: what can it do, how much could it improve or change things, and how much would it matter?
