Humanity+ UK 2010

How will accelerating technological change affect human mental and
physical capabilites as well as the environment in which we live?


How will accelerating technological change affect human mental and
physical capabilites as well as the environment in which we live? What
challenges and opportunities does the human race face in this age of
unprecedented change? How can we help shape the future, spread the
benefits and mitigate the risks of the coming technological
revolutions?

Humanity+ UK2010, a one-day conference in London on 24 April 2010,
gathers together some leading thinkers to discuss these topics.
Speakers include:

  • Max More, on "Singularity Skepticism: Exposing Exponential Errors";
  • Anders Sandberg, on "Making humans smarter via cognitive enhancers";
  • Rachel Armstrong, on "The impact of living technology on the future
    of humanity";
  • Aubrey de Grey, on "Human regenerative engineering – theory and practice";
  • David Pearce, on "The Abolitionist Project: Can biotechnology
    abolish suffering throughout the living world?";
  • Amon Twyman, on "Augmented perception and Transhumanist Art";
  • Natasha Vita-More, on "DIY Enhancement";
  • David Orban, on "The Singularity University", and "The Internet of Things";
