HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species by ArtScience Museum
September 20, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Advances in genetic engineering, biotechnology and nanotechnology that not long ago seemed purely science fiction are now real.
Cyborgs, superhumans and clones are alive amongst us today. What does it mean to be human now? What will it feel like to be a human a hundred years from now? Should we continue to embrace modifications to our minds, bodies and daily lives, or are there boundaries we shouldn’t overstep?
A collaboration between ArtScience Museum, Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, and The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB), this cutting-edge exhibition asks what it means to be human in a world of artificial intelligence, life-like robots and genetic modification. It probes the social, ethical and environmental questions raised by using technology to modify ourselves. Will virtual reality be the new reality? What would happen if a robot knew what we wanted before we knew ourselves? In the future, who will have ownership of our genetic information?
**End date for this event is unfinalized as of now, but the event will run for approximately 4 months.**
