This presentation aims to create awareness about the positive and not-so-positive consequences of the new technologies that are increasingly influencing our lives.

 

Technology is progressing like never before; our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation. As science-fiction becomes science fact, this lecture looks at how these emerging technologies are impacting our lives. How can we befriend these new technologies, rather than running scared from their developments? How can we ensure a bright future in which our children will coexist peacefully and collaboratively with thinking machines?


The event will be followed by a question and answer session and a free networking cocktail.
