Futurist Gerd Leonhard was invited by FORUM EPFL 2021, to stage this virtual debate between him (NOT a transhumanist:) and his colleague Calum Chace (science fiction writer, keynote speaker, futurist and transhumanist see ). Each presented for approx. 15 minutes and then debated each other and took questions from the audience. There are a lot of good morsels here! Topics: - what is transhumanism (and why it's a good idea, or not) - are organisms just fancy algorithms (my clear answer: No) - the future of artificial intelligence - longevity and 'the end of mortality' Watch this interesting debate here on YouTube: Watch a similar event they did a year ago, here: Calum and Gerd are available for virtual and live event bookings, please go here to inquire
