after a very long summer break and months of travelling, we are back on track!!! This time we have a topic which everyone, no matter of gender and age, is interested in: love and innovative technology
150 years ago few people married for love - most married for property, to keep assets 'in the family'. 100 years ago 80% of people married people who lived less than 10km from where they were born (obviously this was before EasyJet ;-) ). Today we see how technology has influenced relationships, from easy transportation to Googling a new date before meeting them. So what does the future of technology hold? In this active and perhaps controversial discussion we will cover topics such as ex-vitro births, artificial intelligence, split personalities, honest agreements, dating apps and of course, love robots J.
This time we will be hosted by the brand new coworking space location, which belongs to Commerzbank, named “#openspace. It provides a large space fostering innovation and collaboration. It is the home base for international startups and the digital transformation platform for the German “Mittelstand” (SMEs).”
The agenda is as it follows:
18:30 doors open
19:00-19:05 Petya "Introduction"
19:05-19:15 Performance of our improvisation theater actors
