What does Technological Evolution Mean To You? (sex robots, I know)
Evolution is any process of change or growth. Biological evolution has been the primary vehicle of change and growth for life in the past bajillion years. Technology, too, is subject to evolution. Technology is also a powerful driver of change and evolution. Technological evolution and biological evolution are becoming one distinct process, and after surveying developments which span both fields I think some very important and pressing questions arise.
In medicine, we have genetic engineering (altering life on a molecular level) and cyborg engineering (applying robotic science to human forms). These breakthroughs are widely publicized and debated; this tech frontier is almost ho-hum since we hear about it so often.
Slightly more interesting are the ways we are using technology to emulate the natural world. We are beginning to replicate the form and function of other species. These emergent technologies reproduce species-specific behaviors and processing, going so…
