The Future of Homo Sapiens

Mar 7, 2019 · Cambridge, United States of America

**NOTE** This event is not organized by NeuroTechBOS ***

The future of our species will be majorly influenced by the technical advancements and ethical paradigm shifts over the next several decades. Artificial intelligence, neural enhancement, gene editing, solutions for aging and interplanetary travel, and other emerging technologies are bringing sci-fi’s greatest ideas to reality.

We invite you to join us at MIT on March 7th, 2019 where Xapiens, MIT's first initiative for human augmentation brings together titans of science, innovation and engineering, intellectuals and industry leaders to imagine, envision and discuss the future of Homo sapiens.

Sponsored by Media Lab.

    NeuroTechBOS is part of the NeuroTechX network, a global network of engineers, designers, scientists, and hackers devoted to discovering the countless mysteries of the human brain and nervous system! From medical to consumer devices, we'll talk about 'reading' and 'writing' the brain. (e.g. EEG, tDCS, TMS, DBS, ...) We'll discuss about the technology and science, but also its impact on our society and the ethics. From Hackers to Researchers, we want to provide a framework that will catalyze the growth of t
