Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity
Recent advances in genetics, reproductive technologies, data analysis and artificial intelligence allow us to treat and cure hereditary disease and solve many biological problems. This class is based on Jamie Metzl’s book (same name) that describes an exhilarating but frightening future involving screening, altering and writing genetic code, which is driven by competition and parent’s instinct to give their children every advantage. The class will address the science, his predictions and alternative visions.
