Think & Drink: The Future of Human and Artificial Intelligence
Admission: Free to the public
If you could take a pill to make yourself smarter, would you? In *More Than Human: Embracing The Promise of Biological Enhancement*, computer scientist Ramez Naam argues that neuroenhancing drugs and gene therapies could create wealthier, happier societies—if those societies are willing to embrace them. But would brain alteration make us no longer ourselves?
Join in considering these questions and others like them with Naam and science historian Mott Greene at Oregon Humanities' Think & Drink.
This is the third in a four-part series that explores how technology may shape the future, moderated by Richard Read, economics and international affairs reporter for the Oregonian. For more information, visit O.H.'s Think & Drink website.
