The Brighter Brains Institute in conjunction with the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies has announced that its next conference will be held on 6 February 2016 and bears the title Argue 4 Tomorrow. As usual, the conference will take place at the Humanist Hall in Oakland, California. The format of this conference will differ from previous conferences in that it will take the form of a slightly modified Oxford style debate rather than a collection of presentations as we usually think of them. The three debate topics will be Open Borders - For or Against, Basic Income Guarantee - For or Against?, and What is the Nature of the Singularity and When Will it Arrive? - What's Your Opinion. For each debate, the audience will vote to determine the victor.
The conference is actively looking for participants who want to join the debate teams at this time. If you will be in the area and want to participate in one or more of the debates, please e-mail brighterbrainsinstitute at gmail dot com and tell them Bryce sent you.
If you are a member of the IEET or the East Bay Futurists advance tickets are only $10us. General admission tickets are $15us. Sales end on 6 February 2016.
Here is the Eventbrite page for the debates.
