Presentation in Second Life on converging cognitive enhancement

Eudoxa will hold a seminar at Uvvy Island in the virtual world of
Second Life on Wednesday May 23rd at 19h00 Central European Time
(13h00 EST, 10h00 PST)

Dr. Anders Sandberg, research director at Eudoxa and research
assistant at the Oxford University ENHANCE Project and Uehiro Centre
for Practical Ethics, will talk about his recent publication together
with Nick Bostrom from the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford

Their paper Converging Cognitive Enhancements reviews currently
available technologies for cognitive enhancement and their likely
near-term prospects for convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology,
information technology and cognitive science and how cognitive
enhancement is ideal for achieving convergence.

The paper Converging Cognitive Enhancements is published in the Annals
of the New York Academies of Science Progress in Convergence:
Technologies for Human Wellbeing and edited by William Sims Bainbridge
& Mihail C. Roco of the National Science Foundation.

The Eudoxa think tank is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Their focus is on
discussing the societal effects of emerging technologies with dynamist
thoughts on experimentation. Eudoxa has published books and reports in
Swedish, Danish and English.
