Genomic Prediction Founder, Prof. Hsu, Interviewed by Radiolab

In a section named "G: Unnatural Selection", as part of a series on cognitive ability, Radiolab dedicates an episode to the implications of screening against intellectual disability.

This past fall, a scientist named Steve Hsu made headlines with a provocative announcement. He would start selling a genetic intelligence test to couples doing IVF: a sophisticated prediction tool, built on big data and machine learning, designed to help couples select the best embryo in their batch. We wondered, how does that work? What can the test really say? And do we want to live in a world where certain people can decide how smart their babies will be?
