Human 3.0: welcome to the future of humanity!
This documentary series (3×52’) tells the story of how the Homo Sapiens, who transformed the world at his finger tips, now is using the technology & scientific means at his disposal to work on his own transformation. These tools will help him escape his status of ordinary human. Tomorrow, losing a limb, becoming paralysed, being sick or even simply aging will no longer be a fatality.
Through its 3 episodes, the series tells the story of this scientific adventure without precedent in the history of humanity. From the clinics of Hollywood to the Lausanne Polytechnical School, from Harvard to Lyon’s Ecole Normale Supérieure, from Berkeley university to Vienna’s central hospital, dozen of researchers & scientists across the globe are working on the birth of the Human of tomorrow. We’ve filmed them in their labs, witnessed their experiments and confronted their findings to the analysis of philosophers, anthropologists and sociologists.
Such a revolution seems bound to create a change of society and an anthropologic break as told by:
– the fixed Human (broadcast on March 31st at 8:50pm) or the story of how humans could soon fix themselves piece by piece, much like a machine, going on to amplify their performances, acquire new powers and transform themselves into cyborgs.
– the connected Human (broadcast on April 7th at 8:50pm) or a future where network connection will be generalized and made permanent between humans, leading to a world where artificial intelligence will cement itself into our daily life, even going so far as to take it over entierely.
– the immortal Human? (broadcast on April 14th at 8:50pm) or the final step of a scientific adventure that leaves us breathless: scientists working on pushing back the ultimate frontier, that of death, thus giving hope to those that pretend they can live eternally.
