Brave New World Impact Café
- Thursday 8 November 2018
- Holiday Inn
The workshop “Upgrade yourself!?” is about how technology affects human life and which human perspectives should be considered by technology developers when it comes to biohacking, implanted chips, antennas etc. Two talks, one from Dr. Femke Nijboer (bohemian researcher on human, ethical and societal aspects of neurotechnology) and one from Dr Stephan Kohn (head of Telekom Design Gallery, the future and innovation forum of Deutsche Telekom AG), will provide inspiration and outline different point of views on next generation HMI. Based on these talks, the impact café taps into an interactive format that tackles possible contributions of SSHA to next-generation HMI. Together we will tackle the questions mentioned above, challenging the SSHA perspective. It’s SSHA transfer in reality.
Taking the partnership between ASTP and BNW into account the workshop addresses Knowledge Transfer Officers, knowledge transfer minded people and, especially, all open-minded SSHA academics and students, including the BNW community.
