Introductory QuoteEdit

"Over the next few decades, the nature of paid work is likely to change significantly owing, for example, to the ageing workforce and changing working practices. Although human enhancement technologies might aid society in dealing with this transition, their use at work is likely to have implications that require careful consideration, particularly by policy-makers, employers, employees, researchers and wider society. Any such use would have impacts across the population and on individuals both employed and not employed. Human enhancement has been widely debated and discussions usually focus on the desire to improve performance. Although the context of work is clearly a primary application of these technologies, debate around human enhancement has not specifically considered the context of work."
