Professor Tony Prescott (Sheffield Robotics) will introduce the first film, Avatar.
A paraplegic Marine dreams of walking again. A remarkable brain-reading machine allows him to transport his mind into an alien body—to live and breathe the experience of another species. The technology to project your mind into an artificial body is on the horizon, but how will it change how we see ourselves? Is this a new path to enlightenment, or a new form of digital inauthenticity?
With a live demo of mind projection into a humanoid robot, come and explore your possible future life as an avatar.
