Modern Humans (Homo Sapiens, Latin for "Wise Man") originated in Africa about 250,000 years ago. Humans reached its full behavioral modernity around 70,000 years ago. About 60,000 years ago, a small group left the to populate Eurasia, Australia and America.
The current human population was estimated to be about 7 billion.
Humans have a highly developed brain and are capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other living species on Earth.
Humans are uniquely adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families to nations. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society.
