Will Innovation Save Us?
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Hamilton and Georgia
SFU Public Square, in partnership with Vancity and Vancouver Foundation, is proud to present Will Innovation Save Us? – an evening of thought-provoking and provocative discussion featuring Ray Kurzweil and Richard Florida, moderated by CBC’s Amanda Lang.
The world is changing, and the rate of change is accelerating faster than ever before. How will communities and people survive and prosper in uncertain times ahead? An authentic curiosity and open discussion about innovation encourages us to keep our eyes wide open and imagine the future. What kind of life do we want for our children? How will we address the world’s great social, economic and environmental challenges? What kind of creative people do we need to meet these challenges? How can new technologies such as artificial intelligence enrich and expand human capabilities? Will we merge human biology with technology? Should we?
