****an ai expert explains how robot-human offspring would work

planned parenthood an ai expert explains how robot-human offspring would work written by david levy obsession life as laboratory december 22, 2017 can robots and humans make babies together? this is a serious question inspired by some of the a nces already achieved in the 21st century by researchers in cell biology and in a discipline variously known as biorobotics, synthetic biology, or bionanotechnology. although it had long been a truth universally acknowledged that ual intercourse was an essential precursor to conception, it was only around 150 years ago that early studies of embryology revealed the reason why, according to the dogma of the time, intercourse was “essential” in human reproduction. the reason was that only an egg from a female, fertilized by a sperm from a male, can result in a live birth. but thanks to the nobel prize winning work of researchers like embryologist john gurdon and stem cell researcher shinya yamanaka, it has become possible during the past few years to create both sperm cells and eggs in the laboratory from skin cells, obviating the need for a human mother or father to kick off the reproductive process. it has become possible during the past few years to create both sperm cells and eggs in the laboratory from skin cells. at the end of april 2016, stanford university and the valencia infertility institute announced the result of a collaboration project in which human sperm, with tails, were created from skin cells. just five months later, testifying to the speed with which stem cell research is progressing, researchers at the university of bath reported that they had discovered a method of creating offspring without the need for a female egg. this was heralded as a major breakthrough which rewrites 200 years of biology teaching, and ... ادامه ...
