I, Human

Run time: 14:00 – 15:00
Ending ageing, death and disease and dramatically increasing our cognitive, emotional, and physical capacities through technology are some aspects of what we call the transhumanist theory. But how much can we change before we become more robot than human? At what point do we leave our own humanity behind? And who will that benefit? 
These are all thoughts that Alexander Thomas from the University of East London explores in his work unpicking this fascinating philosophy. 
Understand the ideas and fantasies that animate the imaginations of those in the transhumanist movement and what it might mean for the future of life on Earth.
