Being Human - Empowering Humanity in the Age of AI

november, 2018 COMING SOON

 

This is a time for change. Major revolutions are occurring in technology and science, particularly in Artificial Intelligence(AI), Nanotechnology, Robotics, Genomics, Cyborg-enhance humans, etc. The technology has run so far ahead of the human that many authorities maintain that within a few decades, the Artificial Intelligence would surpass human intelligence and very possibly expose humans to extinction. 

At the same time, technology revolutions force us to ask this fundamental question: what does mean to be a human being? Whether we would focus on creation of the human-enhancing machine intelligence depends on how we understand the human nature and on the quality of consciousness and culture of our age.

In this conference, we will revision human nature through holistic lens. We will probe into human potential from ancient Chinese wisdom to today’s breakthroughs in science, psychology, art and business - factors that are essential keys to unlocking the human evolution.
