Free Invitation to ‘The Great Debate: Technology vs. Humanity’ 28 Feb 2017 Barcelona

Gerd Leonhard , Technology vs Humanity

Invitation by The House of Beautiful Business, 28 February 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM CET
At the beautiful Casa de La Seda, Carrer de Sant Pere Més Alt, 1, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

Imagine a mix of parliamentary debate, cage match, and poetry slam: The Great Debate will give the floor to opposing views and provide a forum for an animated discussion between humanists and tech-optimists, idealists and pessimists, diplomats and provocateurs: Can mankind keep up with exponential technology? Can we make sure AI serves us (humans) and not the other way around? What is “good” technology? Why should we trust our new robot overlords? And what’s so worth keeping in our current state of humanity anyway?

Join us for a unique debate during Mobile World Congress with Futurist Gerd Leonhard, IXDS CEO Nancy Birkhölzer, Business Romantic Tim Leberecht, Rambus CMO Jerome Nadel, and many others. Take a stance, vote with your hands and feet, or simply enjoy an interactive, thoughtful, and entertaining evening in the House of Beautiful Business.

Seats are limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served base » Registration
