Epstein-Funded Scientist George Church Is Creating a Genetics-Based Dating App

Náhled

Epstein-Funded Scientist George Church Is Creating a Genetics-Based Dating App Harvard biologist George Church already had to apologize for palling around with Jeffrey Epstein even after the financier pleaded to guilty to preying on minors a decade ago. Now he’s raising eyebrows again—with plans for a genetics-based dating app.In an interview with 60 Minutes, Church said his technology would pair people based on the propensity of their genes, when combined in children, to eliminate hereditary diseases. “That sounds like eugenics,” Fordham adjunct ethics professor and science journalist Elizabeth Yuko, who studies bioethics, told The Daily Beast on Monday. (The tech and science news site Gizmodo called Church’s idea “an app only a eugenicist could love.”)Yuko compared the app, as described, to the Nazi goal of cultivating a master race: “I thought we realized after World War II that we weren’t going to be doing that,” she said.Church was part of the coterie of scientists with whom Epstein ingratiated himself via large donations, and Epstein helped bankroll his lab from 2005 to 2007. Church has admitted he repeatedly met and spoke with Epstein for years after the 2008 plea deal that landed him on the sex-offender registry.Epstein had a twisted take on genetics, hosting scientific conferences at which he expressed his desire to propagate his own genome by impregnating up to 20 women at a time at his New Mexico ranch, like cattle stock. In the 60 Minutes interview, Church called his ties to Epstein “unfortunate” and added: “You don't always know your donors as well as you would like.”He Took Money From Jeffrey Epstein. Now These Tech Stars Are Defending Him.But much of the segment was devoted to Church’s genetic-engineering work at Harvard Medical School, including the app that would theoretically screen out potential mates with the “wrong” DNA.“You wouldn’t find out who you’re not compatible with. You’ll just find out who you are compatible with,” Church said.“You’re suggesting that if everyone has their genome sequenced and the correct matches are made, that all of these diseases could be eliminated?” 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley asked.“Right. It’s 7,000 diseases. It’s about 5% of the population. It’s about a trillion dollars a year, worldwide,” Church said. The geneticist didn’t drop the app’s name (“Punnett Square,” anyone?) or how far along it is in development. He also didn’t respond to a request for comment.In the interview, Church acknowledged the drawbacks of genetic sorting. He suffers from dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and narcolepsy—disorders that might render him an incompatible match to many.“If somebody had sequenced your genome some years ago, you might not have made the grade in some way,” Pelley said.“I mean, that’s true,” Church replied. “I would hope that society sees the benefit of diversity, not just ancestral diversity, but in our abilities. There’s no perfect person.”Famed MIT Computer Scientist Who Defended Epstein ResignsYuko said the selection criteria would be a sticking point for Church’s app idea. “It’s not clear what conditions or diseases will be screened for. Who makes that list? What’s undesirable?” she said. “That’s classifying people into acceptable humans and others.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

There’s no perfect person.”Famed MIT Computer Scientist Who Defended Epstein ResignsYuko said the selection criteria would be a sticking point for Church’s app idea. “It’s not clear what conditions or diseases will be screened for. Who makes that list? What’s undesirable?” she said. “That’s classifying people into acceptable humans and others.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

1; A nezapomeň si nadělat do kalhot! Ukrajinský novinář se pochlubil „diverzí na dětském hřišti v Moskvě v „Den ukrajinské armády“. Ukrajinský propagandista Roman Cymbaljuk se opět blýsknul inteligencí a nápaditostí. V Moskevském parku začali operovat ukrajinští partyzáni. Píší na dětských hřištích nápisy „Sláva Ukrajině!“ a kreslí letadélka. Možná v těch místech instalují vysílače, aby

Jaromír Vašek 08.12.2019, 16:27

Svátek pro mě nastal 6.12.2019. Navštívil jsem naší družební 13.ZŠ Naděžda v Alčevsku (LLR). První hodinu jsem strávil na hodině literatury v 5.třídě. Probírali poemu Nikolaje Někrasova „Moroz, Krasnyj nos“. Děti byly velmi vnímavé. Druhou hodinu jsem s 5.třídou šel do nedaleké místní knihovny Vasilevka na pořad o encyklopediích.

Abstinence je věc sekundární. V r. 2000 jsem mohl dávat nemocným heroinistům syntetický metadon – látku, která zabije člověka. Aniž bylo

Babišovi nepřátelé, nečtěte. Slavný Čech má blbé zprávy. Prý jste v háji

10.12.2019, 08:54

Dnes se bude konat další z demonstrací proti Babišovi. Ovšem podle herního vývojáře Daniela Vávry to těžko něco změní, což vyplývá i z průzkumů. "Strategie zbavit se ho přes vlekoucí se soudní tahanice, do kterých se zatahuje EU a nikoho nezajímají, protože 250 milionů se v Praze rozkrade při každé druhé revitalizaci parku a demonstrace, na kterých vystupují lidé, jako facebookový udavač Kartouz, jaksi nefungují," říká. Podle něho bude v další vládě ANO, Trikolóra a ODS. Nebo něco horšího.

„Vyvraždili půl Evropy. A nám budou nařizovat?“ Spisovatel ke 30 letům svobody. Silná slova

10.12.2019, 04:47

30 LET OD LISTOPADU 89 „Lidé ani neumějí být svobodní, chovají se stádně, neustále je někdo naviguje, vlastní úsudek se vytrácí, neboť si člověk neví rady ani sám se sebou,“ zamýšlí se spisovatel a scenárista Josef Urban, když pro ParlamentníListy.cz hodnotí uplynulých 30 let od sametové revoluce. „Vždycky jsem se smál tomu heslu, ‚když nevolíš, volíš komunisty‘. Na ty se neustále vymlouváme. Nemám důvod je hájit, ale je to po třiceti letech anachronismus. To bychom takhle taky mohli stále plakat nad Bílou horou,“ upozorňuje.

Vondra: EU nás poškodí. Tímto rozhodnutím. A bude hůř

10.12.2019, 07:41

Český europoslanec Alexandr Vondra (ODS) kroutí hlavou nad tím, co předvádí Evropský parlament. Kvůli hysterii Němců se podle Vondry může české energetice pořádně přitížit. Evropští zelení totiž před pár dny (5. prosince) oslavili velký úspěch.

Česku hrozí kolaps, uvádí časopis. Za 15 let zle, za 50 let katastrofa. Proč? Mladí, nečtěte

10.12.2019, 08:01

O stavu veřejných financí a o budoucím vývoji vyšel článek v magazínu Reportér. „Výhled je neúprosný. I kdyby českou ekonomiku nečekala žádná recese, již za deset let se veřejné finance při dnešním nastavení přehoupnou do trvalých ztrát a za padesát let by bylo zadlužení vyšší než v současném Řecku,“ zaznělo. Prý máme problém hlavně se stárnutím populace. Co s tím dělá Babiš? Co nám hrozí v budoucnu? Jaké je zdraví veřejných financí? Přečtěte si názory expertů.

Pavel Novotný: Když si Žid přeje smrt Čechů, je to zcela v pořádku

Valentin Dobrotivý 06.12.2019, 00:10

Hned na začátku se přiznám, že osobu Pavla Novotného jsem zaznamenal až minulý měsíc, v souvislosti s jeho plánem postavit v pražských Řeporyjích pomník padlým vlasovcům. Toto gesto jsem ihned pochopil jako typicky populistickou, provokativní snahu o získání tolik důležitého celorepublikového politického PR a laciné reklamy na svojí osobu. Což se očekávaně splnilo na více než 100%. Za jiných okolností by to byla bezvýznamná akce vůdce jedné z periferií hlavního města. Díky přehnané (ale účelově plánované) medializaci ovšem překročila hranice této země a dostala se až do hlavního vysílacího času ruské televize.

Je evropská komise neomylné božstvo?

Lubomír Man 04.12.2019, 00:10

Jistě je, vždyť je to komise složená z lidí tak nesmírně moudrých a nadaných rozumem tak bezchybným a neselhávajícím, že jakýkoli omyl či chybný úsudek kteréhokoli z jeho 28 členů je naprosto vyloučen. A je vynikající okolností, že míru této nadlidské duševní dokonalosti celé komise jako celku i každého z jejích členů zvlášť, jsme si mohli my Češi v minulosti (a můžeme tak činit i v přítomnosti), tak říkajíc osahat na jednom z členů této komise, jímž je naše krajanka a komisařka Věra Jourová.

Kam jsme (ne)došli po třiceti letech

Radomír Dolanský 03.12.2019, 00:10

Chtěli jsme na Západ. To se povedlo. Tehdejší západní svobodu a demokracii socialistický tábor infikoval a dnes se potácíme v něčem, co má něco málo ze Západu, něco víc ze socialismu a stále více z diktatury orwellovského typu. Po roce 89 ́ jsme byli nadšení, jak úžasně nás Západ vítá, objímá s ochotou všemožně pomoci. Dnes, po letech, je jasné, že šlo převážně o kšeft a strategické politicko-vojenské pozice. Navezli do východního bloku miliardy tun západní nadvýroby – převraty v soc. dem. bloku pomohly Západu oddálit agónii nekryté měny a zadluženosti. Následující kolaps se už bude týkat i nás.

Město v Bosně: migranti jsou všude

Po zásahu tehdejšího rakouského ministra zahraničí Sebastiana Kurze v roce 2017 byla balkánská trasa z velké části uzavřena, takže se migranti začali hromadit na vnější hranici Chorvatska. Zhruba 90% všech migrantů je natěsnáno v jednom městě v Bosně a Hercegovině, které má 61 000 obyvatel, uvedl starosta Šuhret Fazlić .
