Singularity Summit - Esther Dyson
Esther Dyson is giving a talk. She's training to be an astronaut!
The Personal Genome Project sequenced her genome. It's online as an experiment to see what happens when you put your genome online. She's a director at 23andMe, a genome sequencing company. She's talking about the future of genetic testing. We'll have personalized drugs appropriate to your genome.
Should we have personalized laws? Maybe we will find a gene showing propensity to alcohol (presumably she means addiction or violence). Should regulations be heavier on people with this gene? (Or, I would add, maybe regulations should be lighter on the rest of us.)
