Brain Bar Budapest to welcome experts
Inspiration festival Brain Bar Budapest, on from June 4-6, focuses on the impact of technological innovation on users and welcomes “the most renowned experts of our time” to discuss the relationship between technology and humanity, the organizers said today in a press release.
The main themes of the festival will include trends and dilemmas defining the future of cities, enterprises, education, health and innovation. Why hasn’t a European Silicon Valley arisen? What will the ideal school be like in 2025? Will we trust applications over doctors? How will the state’s role evolve after the New Industrial Revolution? Where will the future take the complex relationship between technology and religion? According to the organizers, the event’s main objective is to provide a forum for a clash of opinions and the discussion of the most vital issues of tomorrow.
The festival will feature, among many others, Richard Florida, quite possibly the world’s best known creative economy theorist and Daniel Epstein, founder of the Unreasonable Institute, and one of the world’s 30 most impactful entrepreneurs. Sugata Mitra from India, internationally renowned expert on the relationship between technology and education will also hold a talk, as will Stanford University behavioral psychology researcher Philip Zimbardo. Mara Steiu, the 17-year-old creator of an internationally successful smartphone game developing business will also be on hand, as will transhumanist philosopher Steve Fuller and rabbi Slomó Köves, who will be debating the interrelations of technology and religion.
