Popular science at its best, What Comes After Homo Sapiens? presents "the Simborg Hypothesis," the startling theory that another human species will emerge in the next two centuries. Dr. Simborg notes that in our evolutionary history two or more human species coexisting is the norm rather than the exception. Furthermore, our tools to alter our genes, our environment, and our technology are unprecedented, and increasingly effective. Dr. Simborg is a physician, board certified in internal medicine and an expert in medical informatics. He theorizes that we will soon see a new human species that will coexist with us. It will be a much different kind of coexistence than what we know of our coexistence with the Neanderthals. What Comes After Homo Sapiens? addresses fundamental questions such as • How exactly do we differ from our closest evolutionary relatives, living and extinct? • How will we know when the new humans have split off into a new species? • When will that happen and what will that new species be like? • What are the chances that Homo sapiens will become extinct? Dr. Simborg surveys the history of our evolution and explains key concepts about genetic engineering, speciation, artificial intelligence and neuroscience creating in What Comes After Homo Sapiens? a de facto multi-disciplinary primer. Building on a foundation of anthropology, genomics, paleontology, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence, "the Simborg Hypothesis" answers the existential question: What Comes after Homo Sapiens?

An accessible introduction to 3D printing that outlines the additive manufacturing process, industrial and household markets, and emerging uses. The use of 3D printing—digitally controlled additive manufacturing—is growing rapidly. Consumer models of 3D printers allow people to fabricate small plastic objects, from cabinet knobs to wedding cake toppers. Industrial uses are becoming widespread, as businesses use the technology to fabricate prototypes, spare parts, custom-fitted prosthetics, and other plastic or metal items, often at lower cost and with greater efficiency than standard manufacturing. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, John Jordan offers an accessible introduction to 3D printing, describing the printing process, industrial and household markets, and emerging uses. Jordan outlines the stages of 3D printing, from idea to software model to a printable file that slices the planned object into printable layers to the finished object itself. He describes additive technologies, consumer 3D printing in homes and schools, mass customization (which can create tens of millions of unique items), and industrial uses. Jordan explains that although 3D printers have not become the ubiquitous home appliance once predicted, they are making inroads into mass markets; and he discusses the business factors that may hinder industry adoption of 3D printing technologies. He considers the possible unintended consequences of 3D printing on jobs, as companies scramble to find employees with an uncommon skill set; on business models and supply chains, as manufacturing is decentralized; and on patent law, as machines can be programmed to copy protected property. Finally, Jordan looks at new and emerging uses, including bioprinting, building construction, and micromachines.
