Man Driven Brain Evolution: The Road to New Intelligent Life Forms
Artificial evolution of human brain power might soon include man-made implants, telepathic communication, uploading of our minds into supercomputers and production of genuine AI robots, but how can the dark side of this technology be controlled?

The rapid increase in computing power, however, will change that. The question then is, how will people live and interact with man made sentient beings? That is a big enough question, but suppose in a parallel development, people accept mind and body implants greatly to enhance cognitive and physical abilities? What are the implications for individuals, society and the planet?
On top of that if "A quick and dirty version of brain evolution takes place [then it could become] like a bomb with two linked fuses!", argues Lavirrealista in her latest essay (published late in December 2018 by Virrealismo Publishing).
The first refers to an Uncontrolled Artificial General Intelligence, where she asks:
"How can intentional or accidental catastrophe that has been caused by bad decisions of an AGI be prevented?"
Whereas the second fuse refers to the capability of controlling a potential brain-enhanced society and, most importantly the future world resources, because such a powerful technological development will not come on the cheap!
This latest essay of Lavirrealista explores some of the current thinking from the point of view of science fiction the best of which takes technology to its logical conclusions and allow us to view many sided versions of the future.
