TEDxSydney in partnership with Sydney Harbour Marriott is hosting a brunch event and conversations on Inspiring Brilliance led by the Transhumanist Peter Xing.
Marriott’s partnership with TED has highlighted the beauty of travel, the love of learning, and the unshakable sense of curiosity about the world that forms each of our brand legacies. We tap into our guest’s natural appetite for discovery and exploration, giving them the keys to learn new things and see destinations through an entirely new lens.
Transhumanism - the future of humanity?
Our dependency on technology grows daily. From our phones and GPS to laptops and Zoom. Yet some choose to go that one step further. Whether that's using AI to create or support our decisions to integrating tech into our bodies. We're at the point where we are becoming the cyborgs of science fiction. How will we incorporate technology into our lives and bodies to enhance human potential and capability? Is an enhanced person still human? What if it gives us an unfair advantage like in sports or to make calls on the stock market? What if we can download our mind and "live" indefinitely on the internet? The future is bright and complex. If we're to thrive we need to think clearly and act now. We get to decide what is possible and what should be allowed. This is the future, now.
Join keynote speaker Peter Xing to deep dive into the theory of Transhumanism in an intimate Brunch Series at Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel. Lead by a member of TEDx Curation team, guests are invited to discuss our topic, learn new things and meet likeminded people. Participants have the opportunity to talk about their ideas and opinions on the topic and truly engage with other attendees – not just watch a TED talk and then discuss after the event. The interaction is instant, real and reactive, right then and there at Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel.
Your ticket includes a delicious brunch along with the opportunity to meet like-minded people.
This is an intimate event with limited capacity, so don’t miss out.
