The fifth event of the D<AI>DALOS discussion series on AI research and social responsibility. Finally in person!

We invite you to the panel discussion Transhumanism in Research and in Life. This is the fifth event of a discussion series called D<AI>DALOS co-organized by the AI Center FEE CTU and our friends at Machine Learning Meetups (MLMU). Through six lectures planned for 2021 and 2022, we wish to bring together scientists, students and experts from various fields to tackle the questions of AI research and social responsibility. Specifically, the cycle covers the following topics related to AI: creativity, journalism, fairness, sustainability, transhumanism and the opening lecture on the history of AI.

Abstract

Aside from being perceived as synonymous with cyberpunk, cryosleep and cyborgs, Transhumanism is used to seek out solutions and answers about a more or less likely future. These answers translate into academic and practical research and the solutions translate into impactful life decisions. We will explore the different complex facets of Transhumanism and its very real impact on everyday life. Aside from that however we will attempt to set a baseline for Transhumanism 2.0.

Panelists

Sara Polak –⁠ Archaeologist in AI and researcher into Cloud Civilisations
Bolek Kerouš
–⁠ Futurist interested in mental health and longevity
Dodo
–⁠ Nonbinary cyborg artist and autism advocate

The discussion will be moderated by Anna Vošalíková from the Czech Radio.
