 February 13 - A.I. will be 'billions of times' smarter than humans and man needs to merge with it, expert says
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
Will the merger of biological intelligence with digit intelligence produce super humans that have the potential of attaining godhood? This is exactly what is being promised as described by the following article. This is the same as the lie that Satan introduced to Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Artificial intelligence could be "billions of times smarter" than humans and people may need to merge with computers to survive, a futurist told CNBC on Tuesday.

Speaking on a panel hosted by CNBC at the World Government Summit in Dubai, Futurizon's Ian Pearson's comments mirrored ideas put forward by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

"The fact is that AI can go further than humans, it could be billions of times smarter than humans at this point," Pearson said. "So we really do need to make sure that we have some means of keeping up. The way to protect against that is to link that AI to your brain so you have the same IQ     as the computer. I don't actually think it's safe, just like Elon Musk     to develop these superhuman computers until we have a direct link to the human brain     and then don't get way ahead."

 February 15 - Human/AI hybrids and gene editing are going to change mankind in a big way
 Article: Cloning And Genetic Engineering

Comment from UTT:
The following article provides a glimpse of the bold claims made by researchers regarding changing the very nature of humankind. The human genome is being manipulated by human beings who are willingly defying God.

THE human race has come a very long way in a short amount of time, but what is coming around the corner will change everything we thought we knew about mankind.

Modern medicine and rapidly advancing technology have seen us greatly evolve from the early days of hunter-gatherers, and now the same factors are working toward seeing the introduction of "superhumans" into our society. At the core of the development is designer bodies using DNA manipulation and human/AI hybrids, both of which were highlighted during the World Government Summit in Dubai.

Imagine being able to choose if your unborn child will be male or female, their height, weight and even athletic prowess. Now imagine hacking our memories or making our bodies able to thrive in extreme environments in which survival was previously impossible. These are both quickly becoming a reality, according to founding director of the Life Sciences Project at Harvard Business School, Juan Enriquez.

Allowing humans to become masters of their DNA is something can be achieved using a gene editing technique known as CRISPR - a simple yet powerful tool used to easily alter DNA sequences and modify gene function. "These instruments, like CRISPR, are allowing us to, in real-time, edit life on a grand scale," he said, according to Futurism. "We are rewriting the sentences of life to our purposes."
