Brighton: ROBOTS with David Vintiner and Gem Fletcher, 25th April ’18

After the beast from the east cancelled our night of ROBOT talks in Feb, we’re back with David and Gem in April…

The endless debates about the future of robotics, humanoids, androids and AI have been gaining increased momentum in the last few years with technological advances adding an increased urgency. This hasn’t been missed by the photography community and in February Miniclick present two excellent speakers on the subject. Join us on Tuesday 27th Feb in Brighton for talks from David Vintiner with Gem Fletcher.

Transhuman

Biological evolution is being surpassed by technological evolution.  As technology and access to technology becomes ever more democratised it fosters a culture of hacking, disruption and invention allowing the individual to design their own evolution.  Although they come from distinctly different backgrounds, from academia through to experimental bedroom hackers, transhumanists remain passionate about how technology can improve the world or improve the human experience in the world.
