Speakers for "Making a human difference", Sat 29th Jan

Message transféré de ExtroBritannia

The initial list of speakers is now published, for the H+UK conference "Making a human difference" on Sat 29th Jan.

Speakers so far announced are (in alphabetical order by first name):

Ajit Jaokar - Meditation as a transhumanist technology;
Dr Anders Sandberg - The future of ideas on machine intelligence;
Dr Aubrey de Grey - Approaching the human longevity escape velocity;
David Pearce - topic to be confirmed;
David Wood - Five key questions for futurists;
Dean Bubley - Session chairman;
Professor Kevin Warwick - Human Enhancement: A Practical Guide;
Dr Marios Kyriazis - Achieving human biological immortality;
Michael A. Woodley - The prospects for the technological singularity in the context of declining human potential;
Tom Michael - Evidence based cognitive enhancement: a neuropsychological perspective.

See http://humanityplus.org.uk/speakers/ for more details (and for updates, when available).

I believe this list of speakers justifies the claim made at http://humanityplus.org.uk/agenda/ :

The Humanity+ UK 2011 conference is an opportunity to meet some of the most interesting futurist thinkers in the UK - to listen to their ideas, hear about the progress of their projects, ask them questions, and debate with them:

* Setting aside hype, what are the realistic scenarios for progress with emerging technologies that have the potential to make us all smarter, stronger, healthier, longer-lived, kinder, more fulfilled, and more sociable?
* What are the most serious risks ("existential risks") facing humanity over the next few decades, and what is the role of technology in addressing these risks?
* What are the implications of rapidly changing technology for what it means to be human?
* What are the pros and cons of aspiring to a "Humanity+" phase of evolution, with powers and experiences as far above those of present humans as human experience exceeds that of pre-human apes?
* If people want to become involved in activism supporting Humanity+, what are the best steps they can take?

Because of the (considerable) costs of hiring the main rooms in Conway Hall for an entire day, there will be a small entry fee for attendees. This is described at the page http://humanityplus.org.uk/registration/ - which links in turn to an EventBrite page which has just gone live.

Note that the ticket prices increase at 10pm on 3rd January, so there's an advantage in registering early. (And prices will increase again on the day of the event itself.)

There should be more news about the conference soon - including (probably) one or two more speakers, an agenda giving the schedule for the day, and so on.

Regards,

// David W.
