Peter van der Putten speaks about robots at Brave New World 2018

On Friday November 9, Peter van der Putten will speak about robots, and what we can learn from them about what makes us human, at the Brave New World festival in Leiden.


Future technology's impact on human lives

Brave New World is a conference on how future technology will impact human lives, and is held November 8 & 9 in Leiden. In their own words, "the worlds of culture, philosophy, science, technology and storytelling will collide". Presentations revolve around questions of what ethical and societal impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

Students are particularly welcome at the conference, enjoying heavily reduced registration fees, that even include lunch and social drinks (borrel).

Be sure to check out the speakers and full program at Peter's talk is on Friday November 9 (student day passes available at 45 euros).

If you are just interested in the talk, an alternative is Eye's Robot Night, where Maarten Lamers and Peter will give a different talk on the same topic (but in Dutch; we are giving away some free tickets for students and alumni, first come first service just mail Peter, cc: Maarten).
