In today’s extremely fast-paced and perpetually-changing society, the truths we hold sacred seem to be changing all the time. There is an ubiquitous sense of fear and bewilderment towards our future, but also excitement about new and unexpected opportunities. We have more questions than ever, but no definite answers. Join us in exploring where we seem to be going, to define what might be our world of tomorrow. How will our relationship with technology evolve? What will the impact of such socio-technological changes be? We are more wired than ever, but are we less connected? Is virtual going to be the new reality? And most importantly: is the future of humanities still human?
