The Future of Life Institute has presented an open letter signed by over 1,000 robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers urging the United Nations to impose a ban on the development of weaponized AI with the capability to target and kill without meaningful human intervention.

Humans will be taken care of like pets should robots take over because AI will want to preserve us as part of nature

+Jyoti Q Dahiya of course, not that designing someone with half meter fingers makes any sense (that we can understand presently) the point however is that evolution is now in our hands.
eliminating congenital diseases is only a first step, what happens when we actually design the baby? a human? we wish our progeny to be 'beautiful' (according to who? the parents? society?) to be intelligent (according to which criterion?) to be a sport capable human (to what extent? for what reasons? is the baby/future human a relevant parameter in the parents decision?
the article itself doesn't deal with all these issues (tip of the iceberg) but the very concept 'designer babies' does.

We now have the power to easily alter DNA. It could eliminate disease. It could get really out of hand.

Seventy thousand years ago, our human ancestors were insignificant animals, just minding their own business in a corner of Africa with all the other animals. But now, few would disagree that humans dominate planet Earth; we've spread to every continent, and our actions determine the fate of other animals (and possibly Earth itself). How did we get from there to here? Historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests a surprising reason for the rise of humanit...

anyone tried this?
Most "new" products we see are really just minor evolutions of gadgets that have been around for years. But here's one that's completely unlike anything we've used before. Meet Thync, a wearable that zaps your brain to change your mood – like a drug that replaces chemicals with technology.

A Knowmad in the Infoverse - A nascent Polytopia
Introduction
Polytopia Project Founder, evolving the meta-concept of collaboration, towards an increase in combined interactive intelligence. Designing the thought infrastructure for a nascent cyber civilization.
-
Shifts in thought, shifts in perception, shifts in paradigms, all shifts happen simultaneously and concomitantly, some we see and some we don’t, some of these shifts are gradual and some of these shifts are sudden. Our task here then is to contain both kinds, to uphold a view that is floating above the fray and yet intertwines with the fleeting moment of eternality we call now. The shifts that are coming upon us are disrupting the ways of old in the most positive way possible; they are finally rearranging our modes of thought and basic worldviews.

We are entering a new and distinct period in history, the era of the Cyber Soaring Humanity.

From : Cyber Soaring Humanity, or The rise of the Cyber Unified Civilization

which continues here: The Natural Asymmetry of Infocologies

and then here: This mountain has no top

then: Hybrid futures, Knowmads and the Notion state
