|Guests:||Steve Irwin, Dr. Nick Bostrom|
Dr. Bostrom is one of the leading lights of the transhumanist movement, which argues for the responsible use of technology to enhance human capacities. He is currently a philosopher at Yale University, but being something of a polymath he also has a deep background in physics, computational neuroscience, and mathematical logic. During various phases of his 29-year existence, he's also a painter, poet, and a stand-up comedian. He founded the World Transhumanist Association in 1998 in an effort to promote understanding of anticipated future technologies and their impact on humanity.
