XMED: Craig Venter Estimates 5 Million Complete Human Genomes Sequenced by 2020

These and other artificial intelligence and computational approaches may likewise, in the future, take the enormous sets of data generated by large genomic studies like Venter’s and make knowledge from them.

Asked if he foresees a time when science can create a superhuman, Venter shot back, “If you can define one, we can create one.” Pushed (and supplied with a slightly more specific definition), he said eventually we could perhaps, but we should be careful making wholesale genetic changes to the genome.
