Transvision Madrid 2021

World congress discussing on futurist concepts like longevity extension, artificial intelligence, human enhancement and other technologies with first humanoid robot speaker, Sophia, organized by HumanityPlus.

08-Oct-2021 to 10-Oct-2021

Spain will host the next global futurist summit during October 8, 9 & 10, 2021. HumanityPlus will be the main international organizer of this world congress, TransVision 2021, with the help of other leading associations and organizations working on futurist concepts like longevity extension, artificial intelligence, human enhancement and other technologies and future trends. The first TransVision conference was held during 1998 in The Netherlands.

During the last 20 years, we have seen phenomenal advances, and we expect to see much more during the next 20 years. What will the future bring? Science and technology should lead the way! Now we are planning to host in Spain the 20th anniversary of the TransVision conferences, an international summit open to people from all continents, with participants coming from the United States to the United Kingdom, from Argentina to Australia, from Africa to China, from Russia to Venezuela.

The topics considered will be very broad, ranging from recent medical advances to artificial intelligence and robotics. The first keynote speaker will be Sophia, the first humanoid robot that was awarded citizenship last year. TransVision 2021 will have other keynote speeches by pioneers of the futurist movement like Natasha Vita-More and Ben Goertzel, among many others, both members of HumanityPlus and other leading institutions.
