Addressing “the Elephant,” or humanity’s greatest challenges that are often ignored, the event will focus on contemporary technology and the envisioned future that can bring about emerging technologies like Extended Intelligence (AI), Hybrid Realities (Xverse), Augmented Creativity, Cyborg Health, Smart Materials, Digital Currency, Space Exploration, and Sustainability.
X-Verse: Being Digital + Digital Beings
This session will explore the opportunities and challenges for our hybrid realities, where the digital world merges with the physical and biological worlds, and invite participants to consider how they may affect our humanity.
Defying Gravity: From Space Exploration to Democratization
This session will discuss the technologies that enable space exploration and how they influence our lives on earth, as well as the inevitable destiny of humans as an interplanetary species.
Cyborg Health: From Dream Engineering to Nano-Robotics
This session will explore the emerging and unconventional health technologies that are redefining the healthcare system through human-machine symbiosis.
Creativity Across Scales: Co-Creating Communities of Possibilities
This session will focus on learning and creativity, and how technology empowers humans to co-create innovative ideas together in a new way.
Material Alchemist: Bits, Atoms, Magic
This session will focus on advances in material sciences that allow us to weave bits, atoms, and computation into matter.
Internet of Values: Digital Currency, Web3, and Trustworthy Networks
This session will discuss the possibilities and challenges of decentralized networks that allow users to create value and trust in the digital age.
Extended Mind: From Artiﬁcial Intelligence to Intelligence Ampliﬁcation
This session will explore the integration of AI into our daily lives and consider how it can augment human intelligence rather than replacing it.
E-Topia: Sustaining Cities with Smart Technologies
This session will focus on smart techno-social systems that foster sustainability and create a circular economy to improve the future of humankind.
