What makes us human in an age of science and how do new technologies challenge our understanding of what it is to be human? Unfolding across a series of talks linking ideas, artworks and experiments in HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species, Conversations invites you to contemplate the different dimensions, societal costs and unintended consequences of human enhancement.
