The Great Debates of Our Time
The Great Debates, hosted by Foresight Institute were on Saturday November 19th, 2016 at 1pm.
We're all seeing impressive developments. But the future is not determined. The ink isn't dry. What should humanity's path look like? Foresight is bringing together the brightest minds to fight it out in exciting interactive debates covering critical topics from longevity to crypto-currency, from AI to designer babies, and from new governance to X-risks. Join our roundtable discussions, sample the foods of the future and connect with each other.
Our goal is to engage both the public and industry leaders in important conversations that may otherwise not be had.
Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress Workshop
The Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress Workshop was Foresight’s second workshop in this year’s series of fast-paced interactive workshops. Invited participants and an excellent selection of accepted applicants met September 30 - October 2, 2016 in Palo Alto, California.
Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress is targeted at generating new insights, new projects, and new funding for the goal of applying advanced computer science to the challenges of atomic precision. Ben Goertzel as well as Feynman Prize Winners were amongst the attendees. The results, video and whitepaper, will go onto the website shortly to be accessed by the public.
