Aeon is a body of work focused primarily on imagining the evolution of artificial intelligence and human augmentation and highlights the potential coalescence of mankind and machine. It suggests that the idea of what we currently understand as the 'cyborg' will create an epoch or golden age where humans and AI potentially coexist. This raises a debate over the possible implications for human society and the impact that autonomous AI will have. Current theorists postulate that super intelligent design and growth will reach far beyond contemporary comprehension. This would bring about significant advances in human evolution. These advances could manifest in human anatomical augmentation or a boom in AI to where it could become self-sustainable i.e. evolve, adapt and learn.
