American Public Wary Of Biomedical Enhancements
If you were offered a brain chip implant to dramatically improve your cognitive abilities, would you turn it down? Biomedical and nanotechnologies are developing rapidly and it is becoming very conceivable that humans will be able to "upgrade" themselves at some point in the future. However, the technologies in development are generating more wariness than enthusiasm amongst the public.
A survey from Pew Research gauged the American public's reaction to three such technolgies. It found that 68 percent of U.S. adults were worried about gene editing to reduce the risk of disease for babies while 49 percent were enthusiastic. When it comes to the interesting notion of a brain chip implant, nearly seven out of 10 people would be worried about such a procedure.
