Currently robots can give eachother information and walk. skills wich took humans millions of years to accomplish. Compter have over 50 times more information than a human brain. if in fact A.I. can be achieved ow long can we keep a sentient being whos intelligence surrpases our own be kept at bay. after all what did we do to the creatures that had les inteligence that us?
We’ve already seen the future of enhanced humans, and his name is Barry Bonds.
It's not that Peter Ward has a special fondness for rats. It's just that he sees them as survivors and, in the future world he posits, they might be the ultimate survivor — and evolver.
Sure, humans will still have their pets, but they probably will not thrive on their own and many will be genetically engineered. As for large mammals such as lions and tigers and bears, in Ward's world they will be driven to extinction by the loss of their habitats and global warming.
No, the real rulers will be rodents — and snakes. "The fossil record shows that they have the genetic capability of whipping out new species," says Ward, a biology professor at the University of Washington.
Oh yeah, cockroaches are also within the category he calls "champion speciators."
Ward is among the academics who focus on the future of evolution. Many agree that animal evolution will be shaped by urbanization, genetic engineering and climate change. But some disagree on whether humans themselves will continue as a species.
