June 21st, The Egg, Brussels, Belgium.
“The Digital Festival, an initiative of Forum Europe and its partners, is designed to provide a space in the EU capital where the impact and potential of digital technologies can be both challenged and better understood. The possibilities that digital offers up are limitless and often profound. Unleashing this potential and celebrating digital is what this festival of ideas is all about.”
Alex May and Anna Dumitriu will both be speaking during the event:
Genomics, Robotics and Health
13:00 – 13:45
The session will explore the ethics of social robot appearance and behaviour, and will investigate the emerging technology of whole genome sequencing of bacteria . What will it be like to live with robots and how might we challenge our expectations of our social lives with robots? What will genome sequencing mean to us personally, culturally and socially?
