Researchers have identified a drinkable cocktail of designer molecules that interferes with a crucial first step of Alzheimer’s, and even restores memories in mice. The next step is to verify the compounds aren’t toxic in preparation for translation to clinical trials on humans.

Key dates for transhumanist technologies?

#ArtificialIntelligence: Key dates for transhumanist technologies? One of my latest H+Pedia projects is putting together an agreed timeline on key milestones for transhumanist technologies. https://hpluspedia.org/wiki/Transhumanist_predictions Can anyone suggest any dates, milestones or technologies that would be useful to include? 🙂 submitted by /u/Deku-shrub to r/Transhuman [link] [comments] top scoring links : multi

What are the upper limits of what is possible with CRISPR (and genetic engineering in general)?

#ArtificialIntelligence: What are the upper limits of what is possible with CRISPR (and genetic engineering in general)? Let’s say we’ve got a superintelligent AI to work out all the kinks of the technology (like gene delivery) and creatively design edits to our DNA. Is there any upper limit to what could be changed? At that point, is it just a matter of what is biophysically possible? At first I thought an adult’s basic layout (2 arms, 2 legs, and a head) couldn’t possibly change with only genetic engineering, but then…
