Rock band Queen asked, “Who wants to live forever?” Now, decades later, the 2018 Bohemian Rhapsody movie is nearing. It is light years in technological, medical and scientific advances, yet the question remains: Who wants to live forever? The famed inventor Ray Kurzweil, described as the “rightful heir to Thomas Edison,” claims that we are nearing living forever.

Nevertheless, Elon Musk warns us that we are “summoning the demon,” by predicting “an immortal dictator from which we can never escape.” AI pioneer Alan Turing envisioned machines getting so smart they would “outstrip our feeble powers” and “take control” (Tad Friend, The New Yorker).

This event was free for members and $40 for guests, with all proceeds going to Humanity+. Learn more about joining The Assemblage and getting special access and entry to all of our programming.

2018 Biohacked Bodies: Virtual Futures Salon

When: Tue 30 January

Where: London, UK

Virtual Futures presents a panel discussion on biohacking, implantable devices and human augmentation.
Biohackers modify or augment their body with the use of technology. Whilst biohacking has commonly been considered a fringe activity, it is now estimated that 10,000+ people worldwide have RFID chip implants. On the realisation that this kind of activity was possible, and relatively safe, companies have now adopted implants as an alternative to ID cards.
What does this mainstream adoption mean for the future of the biohacking movement? What limitations do they still hope to overcome? How are implantable devices being used in a medical context? What can we learn from these early-experimentations?
Join the pioneers who are continuing to push the boundaries, and explore what’s possible with these new intimate interfaces.
