Sign up for our awesome New York
Tech Events weekly email newsletter.
Explore humanity's indiscernibly dependent relationship with technology, addressing why & how society is physically & cognitively changing, & how artificial intelligence might impact our future.

A thoughtful dialogue will be lead by top leaders across the technology industry:

NATASHA VITA-MORE - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HUMANITY+, INC.: Humanity+ is the largest transhumanist organization that researches humanity & the future.

MAX MORE - CEO, ALCOR LIFE EXTENSION FOUNDATION: Max's 1990 essay "Transhumanism: Toward a Futurist Philosophy" established the global movement. As a strategist, inventor Ray Kurzweil claimed that "Max More's ideas are very influential among other big thinkers, who in turn are influence leaders themselves."

SETH BLAUSTEIN - CO-FOUNDER, VOICE & EXIT FESTIVAL: The Voice & Exit Festival in Austin has been described as, "if TED & Burning Man had a baby." Seth aims to bring together thought leaders & community builders from diverse backgrounds who share a common goal: to maximize human flourishing.

TIM URBAN - WAITBUTWHY: Tim Urban is one of the Internet's most popular writers. Tesla's Elon Musk asked Tim to write about his companies, & Tim spent six months writing a thorough blog series that Vox called "the meatiest, most fascinating, most satisfying posts I've read in ages." Tim's blog Wait But Why receives over 1.5 million readers monthly. His TED talk was the most-watched talk of 2016 & the first TED talk to ever reach 10 million views in its first year.
