The future of our species will be majorly influenced by the technical advancements and ethical paradigm shifts over the next several decades. Artificial intelligence, neural enhancement, gene editing, solutions for aging and interplanetary travel, and other emerging technologies are bringing sci-fi’s greatest ideas to reality.
We invite you to join us at MIT on March 7th, 2019 where Xapiens, MIT's first initiative for human augmentation brings together titans of science, innovation and engineering, intellectuals and industry leaders to imagine, envision and discuss the future of Homo sapiens.
