Starting at 14.00 UK time (GMT) on Saturday 14th March this online Zoom discussion is scheduled to run for around 90 minutes and will include a number of initial short talks followed by a group discussion (in which all online attendees can participate) of the lessons that futurists can learn as individuals, nations and as a global community from the Covid-19 crisis.

Talks/Panelists will include:

“Taking a Mobile First approach to the management of Infectious Disease”
David Doherty, mHealth Insight

“Options for developing medical cures faster”
Steve Buss, Citizen Scientist

“Seeing the crisis differently”
Adah Parris, Cultural Strategist

“Reforms for the post-coronavirus age”

About the London Futurists

The acceleration of technology means that the near future may bring radical changes to all of us. Major developments in technologies like anti-aging, nanotech, genetics, computing, robotics, and geo-engineering are going to make the next few years very exciting – and possibly also very dangerous. We could gain god-like powers – but we might also lose sight of our humanity, and destroy everything that we used to hold dear.

What’s your view? Are things improving? Too slowly or too quickly? Are we are entering a new golden age? Or is the potential “Technological Singularity” something to fear? What does it mean to talk about “Human 2.0” and “Humanity+”? Or perhaps you view such talk as techno-hype? Maybe you just like the practical side of technology and want to find out more about possible paradigm shifts?

Anybody is welcome to this group – you don’t have to be a Techno Geek or work for some futuristic company to be in our group. The future applies to us all!
