'Who am I?' is one of the most fundamental questions of all. But it is becoming increasingly difficult to answer as technology enables us to negotiate and create many different versions of ourselves.
In this webinar, Tracey Follows will be joining London Futurists to explore how our personal identity, freedoms, and potential will be transformed over the coming decades.
In our digital, data-driven world, Facebook gets a say in verifying who we are, science can alter our biology, and advances in AI are revolutionizing not only how we interact online but with the physical world around us. Understanding and defining ourselves is becoming confusing.
From health passports, bio-hacking, and relationships with machines, to mind clones, digital voting, and virtual legacies beyond the grave, we need to understand these vital issues today so that we might design the future of our identity tomorrow.
Drawing on themes from her forthcoming new book "The Future of You", Tracey will suggest how we can preserve our autonomy whilst embracing this new era of transformation.
The webinar will start broadcasting at 4pm UK time on Saturday 20th March.
You are advised to log into Zoom up to 10 minutes ahead of the publicised start time of the event, so you won't miss the start of the live broadcast.
As the discussion proceeds, attendees will be welcome to raise questions and vote to prioritise questions raised by others.
The registration fee (UKP £2.50) helps cover London Futurists running costs, such as Zoom licensing. The webinar can also be viewed, without charge, on the London Futurists YouTube channel, but without the option to participate in the live Q&A.
(If you cancel your registration before the start time of the webinar, Zoom will automatically issue a refund for your registration fee.)
