Human Performance Enhancement
James Canton gets it. His most recent article for the New York Academy of Sciences, Designing the Future: NBIC Technologies and Human Performance Enhancement is proof.
"Never before has any civilization had the unique opportunity to enhance human performance on the scale that we will face in the near future. The convergence of of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science (NBIC) is crreating a set of powerful tools that have the potential to significantly enhance human performance as well as transform society, science, economics, and human evolution."
He goes on..."Human Performance Enhancement (HPE) refers to the augmentation of human attributes or competencies through the use of technology, medicine or therapy designed to replace or increase human performance capability..."
Sounds familiar, eh? Stay tuned for my article in the same issue of the NYAS Annals.
