Oxford Graduate Festival of Ideas
A day-long event of talks and panel discussions. From art history to robotics, the day will revolve around the theme of ‘Future human: Adapting to an ever-changing world,’ providing an opportunity to bring the heated, revolutionary debates of Oxford pubs and MCRs to the stately halls and resplendent gardens of Ditchley Park.
Deku-shrub gave a talk covering the history, people and ideas most closely associated with transhumanism. In the afternoon he participated in a panel on artificial intelligence and the self, discussing a range of bioethical, philosophical and sociological implications of accelerating technological trends.
