Will Genius Be Genetically Engineered?
With significant advances in genetic analysis, genome sequencing and precision gene editing, it’s increasingly likely that embryo selection and genetic engineering will be used to prevent disease and increase the intelligence of future children. Dr. Stephen Hsu joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss human intelligence and the rapidly expanding technology which could soon enable embryo selection for both desirable and undesirable traits.
Dr. Stephen Hsu was founder and CEO of SafeWeb, an information security startup acquired by Symantec and is the vice president for research and graduate studies at Michigan State University. Dr. Hsu serves as scientific adviser to BGI (formerly Beijing Genomics Institute), and as a member of its Cognitive Genomics Lab.
