History[ edit ] Precursors of transhumanism[ edit ] According to Nick Bostromtranscendentalist impulses have been expressed at least as far back as the quest for immortality in the Epic of Gilgameshas well as in historical quests for the Fountain of Youththe Elixir of Lifeand other efforts to stave off aging and death. The late 19th to early 20th century movement known as Russian cosmism also incorporated some ideas which later developed into the core of the transhumanist movement.
Human Technology Investigating the human role in existing and emerging technologies. Continually evolving information and communication technologies ICTs touch nearly every aspect of contemporary life.
Development of these modern technologies is closely intertwined with human practices and social innovations. The human—technology interaction and the human role in various technologies require constant investigation—investigation that is, by nature, highly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary and human focussed.
Human Technology is a scholarly online journal that provides an outlet for this kind of essential research and scientific discussion.
Human Technology presents innovative, peer-reviewed articles that explore the issues and challenges surrounding the human role in all areas of contemporary ICT-infused societies.
The journal seeks to draw research from multiple scientific disciplines with an eye toward how applied technology can affect human existence or how it can, for instance, foster personal development or enhance the research and development industry, education, communication and other fields.
Human Technology's dynamic and forward-looking articles are intended for use in both the scientific community and industry and the journal does not set limits regarding the specialization of its authors. Human Technology welcomes also difficult or controversial topics, and is interested in publishing nonparadigmatic and nontraditional ideas that meet the criteria for good scientific work.
This semiannual online journal is offered without charge, underscoring the philosophy that good research must be available to all. Through Human Technology, researchers are encouraged to collaborate on and to explore the interdisciplinary nature of the human-technology interaction from multiple and equally valid perspectives.
This distinctive journal intends to serve as the meeting place for interdisciplinary dialogue about how humans and societies both affect and are affected by the diversity of ICTs.New Human Technology, Inc.

SIGCHI is the world's largest association of professionals who work in the research and practice of computer-human interaction. What brings us together is a shared understanding that designing useful and usable technology is an interdisciplinary process, and when done properly it has the power to transform persons' lives.
Through technology and innovation, we’re executing major capital projects designed to yield decades of energy. Technologies make it possible to augment human performance in physical, emotional and cognitive areas.
The main benefit for any business in augmenting humans with technology is to create a more. Now is a pivotal time for the workplace and workforce as critical issues affecting society impact work. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest HR association.
