Join Alex Criddle for the final salon in the Breakthroughs series and explore the explosion of Artificial Intelligence and what future breakthroughs for the human species look like.

In the final salon of the series, we’ll look at what breakthroughs the future holds for humans as a species. We’ll explore the recent explosion of AI and machine learning into the collective consciousness, where AI is headed, and what we have to look forward to. How is it going to shape the way we interact with our world, each other, and ourselves? We’ll look at future breakthroughs in medicine and the ability for human beings to live longer, healthier lives and what that might mean for us. Is transhumanism a viable option for human beings? What breakthroughs would be necessary for it to be adopted into the mainstream? What are the breakthroughs we wish to see, and how do we facilitate the breakthroughs we want while preventing outcomes we don’t desire? Where does humanity go from here?
