Transhuman Debate in SF East Bay, co-sponsored by IEET
Jan 22, 2016  

IEET is co-sponsoring a “Transhuman Debate” event in Oakland, California, on February 6, 2016, at Humanist Hall.

The debate will feature two “Oxford Style” Transhumanist Team Debates on these topics:

IMMIGRATION & BORDERS

BASIC INCOME GUARANTEE

Plus it will have a round-table presentation by 3 speakers, followed by argumentation, on the topic below:

WHAT IS THE ‘NATURE’ OF THE SINGULARITY? WILL IT HAPPEN AT ALL?

Each debate will be one hour long.
The first third will be presentation of their POV by the debate team,
the second part will open-ended dispute and persuasion between the two teams,
and the final section will have the audience leaping into the fray.

There will also be a Before/After Debate Poll of the audience to ascertain who actually “won” - (i.e., gained more converts than lost)

The event is co-sponsored with:

IEET - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology
Brighter Brains Institute
East Bay Futurists

Anatoly Karlin proposed the debate concept.

—————————

TEAM Pro-Basic Income Guarantee (Anya Petrova and Barbara West)

Moderated by Scott Jackisch

———————

TEAM Pro-Open Borders/Immigration (Randal Koene, Scott Jackisch)
TEAM Anti-Open Borders (Anatoly Karlin, Mike Johnson)
