The Digital Humanist and the Challenges to Humankind

Join visiting academic Professor Juan Luis Suárez as he explores the changes to humankind and how Digital Humanists' affect the definition of what a human being is in the digital age. He will argue that the humanities are relevant when dealing with many issues including: genetic editing, massive changes in human behaviour, artificial intelligence, and the ecosystem. The common thread across all these issues is that they force us to think at the intersection of human history and human evolution, something we have not had to do before.

Doors open 5:15 for a 5:30 start. After the lecture please join Professor Juan Luis Suarez, the Transformative Technologies Research Unit and the Digital Studio for drinks in the theatre foyer.
