This Funzing Experience:
Could Artificial Intelligence really spell the end of the Human race? How can we harness technology to enhance our future? And in which ways will it re-shape our world? Join global futurist Steve Wells for a fascinating look into the evolutionary journey of our digitised world.

*Each ticket includes a copy of the Book 'A Very Human Future'

Almost every new technology arrives with a fan base claiming it will revolutionize life on Earth. Let’s take artificial intelligence (AI) as the example. For some, AI is just one in a long list of over-hyped technologies that won’t live up to its promise. At the other end of the spectrum are those who believe this could literally be the game changing invention that reshapes our world.

They argue that humanity has a directional choice:

Do we want the transformation to enable an unleashing of human potential, or lead us towards the effective end of life on the planet?


While AI is often the driving force behind many commentators’ views of the future, we also need to pay attention to not only the other technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D and 4D printing, and hyper-connectivity - but also to the full range of forces driving change.

In a fast-changing world with a rapidly changing reality, it is no surprise that we are often only planning for the next month or year. However the seemingly limitless potential applications, impacts, and implications of AI and other technologies demand that we look more deeply into the opportunities and challenges that a digitally-enabled future might bring.

So the question is, how can we ensure A Very Human Future that enriches humanity in a digitized world?

Venue: Trapeze, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
