Roundtable discussion: We have always been cyborgs
With intelligent machines and the ability to manipulate our own genetic code, the question “What makes us human” is more pressing than ever before. I would like to argue that the use of technology is part of the answer and that philosophically there is nothing new in the challenges we face with AI and other technologies. If you like to discuss transhumanism and how technology will or will not change the very nature of our species you are welcomed at our table.
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
