2 & 3 November: Brave New World - Conference on How Future Technology will Impact Human Life

On November 2nd & 3rd, 2017 the world of culture, philosophy, science, technology and storytelling will collide at the Brave New World conference. Luris is proud to announce that we will once again be a partner of this exciting event. 

Brave New World is an annual conference for professionals coming from science, industry, government and the creative industry, who want to go beyond their own field of interest. People who want to know what the future holds in store and how this will affect our life and work. Brave New World wants to discuss what social impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

Theme 2017
This year's conference will explore the impact of future technology on human life and attempt to answer questions such as: How far are we willing to go with human enhancement? Does Artificial Intelligence has rights? Is there a future for democracy in this digital age? What do we think of helping nature with artificial evolution?

After a successful first edition, Brave New World has another inspiring two days in store with themes like transhumanism, nature and biotechnology, the future of democracy & politics and artificial intelligence.
