Technology has always been a tool for humans to sustain and facilitate life. Nowadays, however, mechanization has taken on an extent that can already be described as infectious. Keyword: digital transformation through artificial intelligence. Alongside the ethical questions raised by the technology of artificial intelligence, there is the existential question of the replacement of the human individual by a solitary superintelligence. What is decisive here is not how realistic this replacement is, but whether humans would agree to it.

Philosopher Wilhelm Reichart is a consultant in his own philosophical practice and is the author of Vom freien Menschen – Fünf philosophische Reden (2018).

With follow-up discussion on “The Engineered Man – Human Technology?”
