Humans have continually experimented with technology to enhance life as they know it. This curiosity has now entered another territory – Human Augmentation which basically means taking the help of technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things, to not only enhance our daily lives but also to take human intelligence to the next level.
Currently, the studies have been racing towards helping people with disabilities with bionics and prosthetic augmentation and curing sickness by experimenting with genes. But the promise is to end the existing physical disabilities or prevent injuries from happening at all.
It can also provide opportunities for other creative functions. For example, companies like Neuralink aim to build an incredibly powerful brain-machine interface, with the power to process magnanimous amounts of data.
