Professor Nick Bostrom, Director of the Future of Humanity Institute, has been named in Foreign Policy magazine's list of the 'Top 100 Global Thinkers'. The article, published in a special issue of Foreign Policy recognises those individuals whose ideas shaped our world this year.

Prof Bostrom, who has argued that one day technology could allow us to upload human minds onto computers, preserving our every memory for posterity and allowing people to speed up their thoughts by installing faster software, was recognised for 'accepting no limits on human potential'.
