WTA's Hughes speaks in Portland

Portland, OR | Posted on January 23, 2006

The convergence of genetics, robotics, information and nano technologies will improve human performance and capabilities like never before. What kind of society will this new phase of technological development bring about?

Portland State University and Geneforum, a Portland-based non-profit that educates, engages, and consults the public on bioethical issues, have invited James Hughes, Executive Director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies at Trinity College and author of Citizen Cyborg: Why Democratic Societies Must Respond to the Redesigned Human of the Future to discuss the science, ethics, and ramifications of improving humans through technology. James Hughes will speak on Monday, February 6, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. at PSU's Smith Memorial Student Union, 1825 SW Broadway, Room 294.

The public forum is sponsored by Geneforum, University Studies Capstone Course, Center for Public Participation National Policy Consensus Center Hatfield School of Government, and PSU's School of Engineering & Technology Management.
