You’re a human being. Why not stay a human being?
Because I want the best and that’s a metallic heart.

Manuel

Hi Cho! Hi Sam! Great that you could both make it!

Today 11:38   

Cho

Sure, no problem! Hi everyone! 😊                                                         

Today 11:39  

Sam

Hi all! You want to talk about robots again? 😄

Today 11:40   

Manuel

Actually, no, and we’d be leaving Cho out …😄

Today 11:40  

Cho

Except for the machinery in our lab, I’m not really into robotics 😄

Today 11:40  

Manuel

I’d like to interview you both about cognitive enhancement

Today 11:41  

Cho

That does sound more up my alley!                                                        

Today 11:42  

Sam

So, is this about AI and brain implants?

Today 11:42   

Manuel

Well, yes and no, I mean, not just about that …

Today 11:43  

Manuel

I’d also like to hear your views on the idea of enhancement as such

Today 11:43  

Cho

Like, philosophically, ethically?                                                                

Today 11:44  

Sam

I did take a course on the ethics of AI (Ethics of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics), but I’m not sure whether that’s the same

Today 11:45   

Manuel

Let me explain a bit then:

Today 11:45  

Manuel

Remember the piece about science and sci-fi John and I were working on? Life Imitating Science

Today 11:45  

Cho

Sure, that was very interesting! 😊                                                         

Today 11:45  

Sam

And that actually was about robots … again! 😊                          

Today 11:45   

Manuel

I know you love talking about robots, so I keep bringing them up …

Today 11:45  

Manuel

Thanks to Julia we started writing on all the ways humans have tried to improve themselves

Today 11:45  

Sam

A kind of history of tool use?

Today 11:45   

Cho

Or medicine?                                                                                               

Today 11:45  

Manuel

Both actually! That’s why I need both your expertise here: this is about prosthetics.
