The combination of artificial intelligence and biotechnology will enable us to efficiently manage our health and cure diseases, and even reshape life as we know and meet up with the huge demand for health, longevity, youth and beauty. How should human beings act when they face this? This requires experts from all concerned fields to come and think together.
