From the IFVP's 20th Annual Conference, AustinTX 2015:
Radical Evolution: The Future of What It Means to Be Human
Speaker: Joel Garreau
Noted futurist, Joel Garreau is the author of several books, and his keynote will be based on Radical Evolution: The Promise and Peril of Enhancing Our Minds, Our Bodies, and What It Means to Be Human. Radical Evolution takes an unprecedented look at the point in history at which we have arrived. For hundreds of millennia, our technologies have been aimed outward at altering our environment in the fashion of fire, agriculture, or space travel. Now, for the first time, we are increasingly aiming inward at modifying our minds, memories, metabolisms, personalities, progeny and possibly our immortal souls. Join Joel as he explores these new drivers of the future; altering human nature – not in some distant tomorrow, but right now, on our watch.
Here is his talk:
