We Will All Become Cyborgs

We Will All Become Cyborgs

Speakers

How can humans stay in control while artificial intelligence is developing so rapidly? Biological evolution is slow and cannot keep pace with the technological explosion of the 21st century. We spend so much time, energy and money to make our phones smarter, our homes smarter and all of our gadgets smarter. Why are we not spending the same amount of time, energy and money on making ourselves smarter? The next cognitive (r)evolution is about to happen, we will merge the best of human and technology for the good. Humans have always adapted to their ecosystem, starting with creating language, writing, and much more... This session will focus on the opportunity to use technology to become more human philosopher and cognitive scientist Andy Clark says it well, we are all 'Natural-Born Cyborgs'.
