Brave New Human – Reflections on the Invisible

Brave New World Conference challenged scientists, artists, writers and philosophers from all over the world to answer a question most people are not only wondering about but, after quite some months of uncertainties, even long for — How will our world look like after corona. Will the COVID-19 pandemic have a lasting effect on us, on our society and on how we see our the world? We bundled their visionary answers, ideas, strategies and arguments in Brave New Human – Reflections on the Invisible to give you an insight in a possible future post-Corona world.

Brave New World launches publishing house

Every year, we bring the most innovative thinkers in culture, politics, business and society together, to discuss how future technologies will affect business, policies and life. And now (especially now!) our discussions will reach beyond our conference halls. So we are launching a brand new publishing house that will take the ideas of Brave New World to your doorstep. The books of Bot Publishers will revolve around the same topics as our conference: future technologies and their ethical and societal impact.
