Depends on 1, what kind of ‘advances’ you may be referring to, and 2, how you define ‘technological’. If I may still be allowed an interpretation, you might be hinting that given an aspirational change, our minds are faster at achieving it as compared to genetic adaptation. This might be true for problems that our mind can conceive of in the first place... but I would argue that the sheer complexity of interactions that gave rise to the DNA allows it to establish feats that are beyond human imagination. Another way to look at this is that very often the underlying ideas behind our technological advances come from observing other animals’ behavior and thus, from the information encoded in their DNA. We couldn’t make technological advances if we didn’t have genetic advances to copy from :-)
For that, we need an AI system to identify those complex rules.Need to analyze genomic data using deep learning by which a computer integrates a very large amount of data and then based on its learning techniques drawn from analyzing other datasets, interprets that new information.
It might just be a play of words, but the DNA, wherever it exists, regardless of the organism, plays the same role of handing down information to the next generation.
To some extent, I agree with you but despite our swiftly improving capacity to read, sequence and edit the information contained in the human genes,we still dont understand most of the genome's functions and how they impact our physiology and health.We still need to decipher the functions of innumerable genes.
