A few weeks ago, I had the honor and the pleasure of talking about the ethics of human augmentation with Neil deGrasse Tyson, Adam Savage, and Chuck Nice at the New York Comic Con! We discussed a range of topics from exoskeletons and brain implants to tiny humans to save the planet and Artificial Intelligence. You can watch the full episode here.
