DELIGHT KEYNOTE & WORKSHOP
The Augmented Human: a trip to dystopia
Available as keynote and/or workshop
We are the first generation of Homo sapiens to achieve a measure of control over our own continued evolution and augmentation – and to reflect on this power. How will we deal with our ability to augment our bodies – from glasses to bionic eyes to Ironman exoskeletons, from implanting chips inside the body to editing our genes, and one day replacing organs by artificial versions? What will it mean to be me when increasing parts of me become autonomous technology or is connected to distributed intelligence? We must face such ethical and philosophical questions head on if we are to retain control over our humanity.
