Event description

Description

Some people dream of the ultimate merge of man and machine. The creation of super humans with new sensory abilities, enhanced brain power, eternal memories and extreme physical strength. Body parts can be replaced by robotics, and ultimately, human enhancement could mean the end of aging.

Scientists are showing us that many of this is already possible. The suffering of Parkinson patients is relieved by deep brain stimulation. Prosthetic infrared vision has given a mouse a sixth sense: they can now sense infrared light. And in many other domains – sports, entertainment, the military – human efforts are enhanced by technology.

What will be the future of human enhancement? Does technology have an agenda of its own or is it up to societies if and how human enhancement is to proceed?

Join the Dutch Future Society on September 5th for its annual event, Your Brain in 2030: Merging Man and Machine. Be amazed by an expo of sensory experiences by entrepreneurs and artists, and get a feel of the future. Listen to stories by scientists at the forefront of human enhancement. We will use the combined brainpower of professional forward thinkers in the Netherlands to consider the implications of the envisioned future, and use our imagination to conceive stories of alternative futures. Get inspired by science, ideas and artistic impressions. Meet creative forward thinkers of all ages and backgrounds.
