Anthropomorphism and Anthropocentrism
With robotics and artificial intelligence our machines are becoming more human-like. With technological, pharmacological, and biological augmentation we are becoming more machine-like. As we anthropomorphize machines we must avoid the anthropocentric hubris that we humans will forever reign supreme. I consider future scenarios of the singularity, transhumanism, and robot ethics.
