Our Sci-Fi Future

Could imagined futures in sci-fi films become a reality?


A sci-fi future of cyborgs, human clones and mind control over machines will be explored in a one-off discussion event at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre on Wednesday 10 January.

Our Sci-Fi Future will take inspiration from films such as A.I., The Island and The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to provoke discussion and debate over what route science could take us down. This free event at the Dana Centre – the Science Museum’s adults-only venue for discussing contemporary science issues – will look at a range of possible futures such as whether computers could become more intelligent than humans, or if genetic engineering could be used for every day human enhancement, rather than medical needs.
