Coming Out As Cyborg: Implications for Autonomy
A Conversation with (IM)POSSIBLE BODIES in partnership with Den Bosch Data Week
Join (IM)POSSIBLE BODIES and the founders of Cyborg Arts to learn more about their practice as cyborg artists and the process that drove them to co-found the Cyborg Foundation. Together we explore possible approaches to the union between our species and technology, the extension of the human senses through cybernetics, and the ethical dilemmas inherent in merging or bodies with big tech. Bring your hot takes and lingering questions on data ethics, artificial intelligence and what it means to be human.
