Cyborgs, Futurists & Transhumanism

: A Conversation

Part of the Cyber-Insecurity series.

We've all heard of Terminator, Blade Runner, and other science fiction about cyborgs. But how far is reality from fiction? Can scientists transform humans into machine-like creatures — stronger, smarter, and who knows, even immortal? Join us for a unique conversation between a leading neuroscientist, a humanist, and a physicist about our transhumanist future.

Reception with light bites, cash bar (21+), and opportunity for intimate dialogue between audience and speakers after the formal program.

Adults 18+ Only.
