What will the human race be like in the future? As a species, how will the evolutionary process affect us? Our species is becoming progressively different on the basis of an evolution that involves science and technology. In every sense. In the measure that human action, science and technology can modify the human body itself: its capabilities, its perceptions and its durability. But also in the measure that such human action has an impact on the environment and so orients, constructively or destructively, the evolutionary processes of any species affected by it, which means absolutely all of them. And above all of them, our own. Cyborgs, prosthetics, hybrids, robots, augmented capacities, artificial intelligence, the redesigning of our surroundings, lengthening lifespan, etc.: what do scientists have to say about all this? And artists? Where, exactly, are we headed?
