Deciphering the human genome is still a mystery. Artificial intelligence could help to solve them. New therapeutic approaches for serious diseases seem possible, as well as non-medical “improvements” of the genome. Technology assessors at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), are investigating which applications are realistic and which ethical questions they pose to society.
