Is the Future of Humanity Bionic?

IEEE TechEthics Conversations Series

Live Broadcast: Tuesday, 7 August 2018
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT (GMT -4)

From as far back as Ancient Egypt in 1500 B.C., humans have explored ways to regain functionality due to limb loss. In the more than three millennia since then, the evolution of augmentation has taken us well beyond simply regaining functionality to exceeding it. Join us as a panel of experts and visionaries discuss how advancements in limb prosthetics are helping to shape what it means to be human.
