Abstract

It is the belief of this group that NBIC technologies present important challenges and opportunities that we must face; we have the utmost confidence that facing them will lead to a better future. The multidisciplinary spectrum of these technologies is so vast that special attention should be paid to the implications, benefits, and risks of human enhancement as a rising field of research and development. The ethical, social, economic, and political consequences of NBIC technologies will be present in everyday life. Special care should be taken to avoid excessive prudence or reckless adoption. Our decisions now will affect both the present and the future of humanity and life.
