About the event

HYBRID EVENT (in person and online)

The development of AI, neurotechnology, nanotechnology, biotechnology, genome editing, synthetic biology, artificial life... pave the way towards the structural and functional modification of what it means to be human. The continuous feedback of these advances with new findings from basic science exceeds the speed of our pace and capacity to prepare ourselves socially, ethically and legally for the existential risks that arise.

Given the growing unpredictability of said techno-scientific convergence, in this event we will address the international protection of human rights in the age of neurotechnology.

If we reach a level of radical transformation of our essence, what ethical and regulatory scenarios should we consider? How would natural rights be linked to human dignity, if we have become something different? Recognizing that concepts such as freedom and security continue to experience dialectical tension. How to find the regulatory balance that protects our freedom and our identity?
