Masters & Robots 2018
The future is coming! Longevity, Biotechnology, in vitro meat, artificial intelligence, reading emotions, robotics, the blockchain, the future of media and medicine, investing in technology. That is is the world of tomorrow which will be explored during the 2nd edition of the Masters & Robots event on 13th-15th November.
The central theme of the event is digital transformation and how it will affect us in 10 years.
“In Poland, we mostly encounter the theory of digital change. There are very few practical examples of implementations and specific case studies that can be inspiring. Our knowledge in the field of new technologies is limited only to selected areas. Meanwhile, technology has to be learned as a whole, because you never know which element will have a disruptive impact on our industry. That is why we organise Masters & Robots – to share unique knowledge in this area.” said Jowita Michalska, founder of Digital University, event organiser.
The education of Masters & Robots participants will be taken care of by global elite of lecturers and practitioners. Guests work in the most dynamic technology and business centres in the world (e.g., Silicon Valley, Israel, MIT). Workshop participants will be able to enter into deep dialogue with them and benefit more from Masters & Robots.
The event will also feature Singularity University, whose Warsaw branch – SingularityU Warsaw Chapter – will organise an open meeting during the Masters & Robots.
Speakers of the Masters & Robots will include:
Peter Gloor: One of the highest authorities in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning from MIT. Peter is not only a theoretician. Together with the team, he developed and implemented, among others Happimeter – a smartwatch used to read emotions. Happimeter will not only determine our emotional states but also make it possible to predict them in given situations, company or places (with an accuracy of 94%). Peter Gloor’s projects are the fulfillment of the vision from the Black Mirror series. At Masters & Robots he will talk about how to apply his technology to reading moods in large organisations.
Mark Post: Lecturer at Singularity University, founder of MosaMeat, creator of the first in-vitro hamburger, specialist in molecular agriculture. Mark Post fulfills the dream of Winston Churchill to produce meat without slaughtering animals. The money in his vision was invested, among others Sergey Brin (creator of Google) and Merck. Today MosaMeat is one of the global pioneers in the production of so-called ‘Pure meat.’ At Masters & Robots he will explain why in vitro meat will change the future of food.
Andra Keay: One of the most influential women in robotics’ world. Founder of Silicon Valley Robotics, dealing with market development and commercialisation of robots. Andra works to make sure that different industries and businesses can benefit from the achievements of robotics. She also promotes the social applications of robots. Mentor, investor, advisor, a lecturer at Singularity University. A committed feminist. In the past a member of Australian punk bands. Follow her at @RobotLaunch
Natasha Vita-More: Queen of transhumanism, founder of Humanity+, the largest organisation promoting this philosophy. She designed the model of the future human – Primo Posthuman – an artistic vision of the human species. Natasha is an adviser to Singularity University, the author of many works in the field of human development and radical life extension. At Masters & Robots she will talk about the business side of transhumanism. Follow her at @NatashaVitaMore
