2021 - Brave New World

- , 21:00
Location: Naturalis Museum & Online


Brave New World is an annual conference for people who want to know what the future holds in store and how this will affect their business, policies and life. This conference is for people who want to go beyond their own field of interest, who want to network with others with innovative mindset. We want to discuss what ethical and societal impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

After the successful first five editions, we are looking forward to another inspiring two days full of contemporary question and a diverse line-up of excellent international speakers. This year our two themes will be Artificial Earth and Trust in Reality.

In Trust in Reality we want to discuss how humanity is looking at reality at large. What is the scientific concept of ‘real’, and how do we perceive reality? What impact will altered reality and fake information like deep fakes have on our society? Can fakes become ‘real’ and why are we making fakes and forgeries in art and in life?

Artificial Earth entails the footprint humanity leaves on earth. By using new technology we are altering and adapting our environment to our needs not following “normal” evolutionary rules. What is the impact of these alterations on the planet and other species, how much impact are we allowed to have? Is earth ours to enhance?
