Researchers and theorists in the Transhumanist movement will meet in Melbourne Australia this May to bring together thinkers from across the world to explore the implications of a broad range of emerging technologies poised to transform the ways in which we live. The conference will address topics in AI, robotics, genetics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, life extension and the technological singularity. Speakers will include; Dr Aubrey de Grey Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation, artist and designer Natasha Vita-More director of the Transhumanist Arts and Culture World Center and president of the Extropy Institute and many others. We have seen all too often in the media times when new technologies are presented in an inaccurate or sensational way leading to public misunderstandings and fear. Interestingly one of the main goals of the conference is to strategize methods for ensuring that the increased public awareness of these ideas and technologies are presented in a positive light.
