Meat the Machine: We Cyborg!
Fri 18 November 2016, 18:50 – 21:00 GMT
We are inhabitants of the Cyber domain. Citizens of Cyberspace. Actors in the Information Age. Soon, we will share the realms of our existence with machines, robots, that move amongst us. Some will look like us, others will not. Some will teach and heal us. Some will kill and imprison us. Soon, we will see humans, and humanity, reinvented as Cyborg. Soon, we will birth the dream, whispered by J. B. S. Haldane in 1923, and by the conquest of evolution through science and technology we will create a new species of life: Homo Sapiens Cyber; Humanity V2.0. The Singularity is nigh! The robots will rise! The AI will enslave us! What will it mean to be human? This event will open with a series of, provocative, short introductory talks exploring themes of the human in Cyber. A lively and vigorous moderated discussion will ensue.
