Digital arms race against the Covid

Medicine, biology, genetics, pharmacology, zoology, but also environmental sciences are of course in the front line in the fight against Covid-19.

Transhumanism is a war machine against life...

Today you can have your DNA sequenced in one day, and maybe in five years you can repair it with the so-called CRISPR/cas9 correction technologies. At the same time, the Internet short-circuits your ways of moving (with Uber and AirB&B), of checking yourself (quantified self and telemedicine) or of learning (MOOCS),

China: 100 million workers to be replaced by robots

Nothing goes right in China anymore. As the world's largest manufacturer, China produces 25 % of all the manufactured goods on the planet.
