The relationship between human and artificial intelligence has borne the idea of transhumanism which is a new technology for the enhancement of human's physical mental abilities i.e. to select or alter human aptitude and other characteristics which are beyond the existing human range by using specific applications of technologies like neuro, cyber, gene and nanotechnology to human biology. Transhumanisms involves improvement of human heredity (transfer of characteristics from parent to child through genes). Transhumanisms also involves bio-diversity and neuro- diversity. Biodiversity here refers to (a) genetic diversity {i.e. genetic variation of in the same species), (b) species diversity (i.e. diversities among group of organisms which are capable of reading and producing off spring (c) ecosystem diversity (i.e. diversity among plants, animals and micro-organisms). Moreover, Transhumanism is combination of genetic engineering and information technology and specially molecular nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.
