This ScienceServ explores the emerging science and innovations around how technologies are changing our bodies, our sense of self, and the conditions for life on earth. This ScienceServ is interested in a wide range of technologies including biotech, nanotech, and robotics. We are interested in the use of technology for big data, building body parts, creating smart weapons, and taking on more human roles. We are further interested in how humanity is moving towards a state of artificial existence on an artificial planet. We aim to provide an international space for health professionals, scientists, researchers, community groups, government agents, and the health-affected to connect, share, and discuss these concepts and new findings. We do this by distributing influential research articles and hosting partnership calls featuring new research and innovative efforts involving this 21st century brand of technology.
