He also states this claim, “Humanity would take control of its own evolution and kick it into overdrive” (Hayes) which was the need for a policy by giving examples of what can occur or happen if a child is genetically engineered. He backs up/supports his claim by giving examples of the progress made by us in the genetic engineering field. He talks about the discovery of the 5-HTT for reducing the risk of depression and the DAF-2 gene variant which double the lifespan of nematode worm which, if successfully applied to humans, will double our life span (Hayes). His warrant of his claim was that he makes his paper very sound and attractive to the audience or readers. Hayes also passes across that parents want their children to be the best of the
This is a common theme in the novels Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Both novels show a scenario where knowledge has crossed a line by being used in insensible ways, causing it to become a burden. To use knowledge in a wise way, we have to ask the question; “even though we can, should we?” When this question is given thought, knowledge can be used to benefit humanity. Writer D.T. Max shows this by portraying the story of Neil Harbisson, who could not see in color before he had a cybernetic implant.
(Small para on psychological approaches on IA and RR; types of love) Interpersonal attraction seems to be critical in the formation and development of effective interpersonal relationships, among which romantic relationships have significant evolutionary importance, and thereby improving quality of life. Influential factors include social, biological, psychological, evolutionary reasons among other. In this essay, the causes for interpersonal attraction will be further discussed from a evolutionary, psychodynamic and humanistic perspectives. Evolutionary psychology is a more recent approach that conceptualises humans as creatures programmed by evolution to develop behavioural, biological, and cognitive characteristics that help in their survival and reproductive fitness (Schultz and Schultz 2011: 367). The modern evolutionary approach based on the work of Charles Darwin suggests that natural selection can also 'shape psychological and behavioural tendencies ' (Griskevicius, Haselton and Ackerman 2015).
He advanced the idea on to humans and discovered similar results. Skinners theory on the similarities in the brains of humans and animals has positively impacted the field of psychology and has set up new methods of behavioral change. Through testing, Skinner revealed that humans and animals react to reinforcement similarly.
Isaac Asimov’s Reason, shows us how the field of robotics is still a working-progress, Philip K. Dick’s Second Variety introduces the idea of superior, conscious machines who were created by advanced technology, and Kenneth Chang’s “Can Robots Become Conscious?” shares different views on the advancement of machines and robots. I believe machines and robots are not glorified adding-up machines and I think it is possible that they will become capable of original thought the more we advance in the field of robotics. Similar to the iPhone updates, new technology and new studies could lead to intelligent, conscious machines. Technology has come a long way, with the introduction of the Siri of the iPhone, Window 10 2-in-1 computers, flying military drones, and many more. As time passes, we will continue to be introduced to new creations which will be far more superior than what we have at the moment.
Now that technology is evolving at a rapid pace, it is natural to compare these technological advancements with humans. As discussed in The Machine Question, David J. Gunkel challenges his readers to understand the fundamental questions that relate to our perspectives on smart machines and artificial intelligence (Gunkel #). He addresses machines as moral agents, and whether or not they deserve to have ethical consideration. On the contrary, in Frankenstein,
Such a nice environment to live in isn 't it? How can such scenario be possible? The answer: Technology, more specifically, Artificial Intelligence. This argumentative essay will highlight the tremendous effect of smarter, faster and ever-so growing world of Artificial Intelligence and why it will benefit mankind when
The movie of Annihilation is about change over time the evolution of organisms, but one way the idea of evolution occurs in this movie is the imitation of genetic coding, reflecting and distorting the genetic coding of all organisms creating something new. While watching this movie it just made me think about mirror neurons and its ability to imitated movements and even feelings at times. What if the ability for an organism DNA structure to change meant involving the mirror neuron system so it can reflect the genetic coding surrounding the organism? That was just one of the many questions I thought about after watching this movie. Annihilation was very interesting and I encourage you to watch it if you have not already and I am sure the book is much better because the movie never tells everything that happens in the
On the other hand, there are more researches and uses of how AI will go along with humans and our society. I also believe that Artificial Intelligence will continue the successful and effective job in the future. Before going into the argumentation, I would like to provide the definition of AI. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a technology that realizes human learning, reasoning, perception, and understanding ability of natural language by a computer program. In 1950, John McCarthy who is the father of Artificial Intelligence and the computer science, came out with the term “Artificial Intelligence”.
Artificial Intelligence is the study of man-made computational devices and systems which can be made to act in a manner which we would be inclined to call intelligent. The ability of a machine communicating using natural language over a teletype to fool a person into believing it was a human. “AGI” or “artificial general intelligence” extends this idea to require machines to do everything that humans can do, such as understand images, navigate a robot, recognize and respond appropriately to facial expressions, distinguish music genres, and so on. Current Uses of AI: Although artificial intelligence evokes thoughts of science fiction, artificial intelligence already has many uses today. • Email filtering • Personalization of online services with the help of your previous purchases • Fraud detection in Banking sector to identify unexpected activity, such as foreign transactions, could be flagged by the algorithm.
