• Join our conversations on using exponential technology to create a better future

    Hi Everyone, Can't wait to see new members, friends and enthusiasts to discuss topics related to exponential technologies. We would like to chat about ideas that we can use to organise bigger dedicated events to deepen conversation around certain topics. A lot of developments at "light speed" are going on in practically all fields of exponential technologies (AI, Nanotech, Blockchain, Genomics/Digital biology, IoT, Robotics, etc). Enough to share, deepen and question. As always, food and drinks are on your own expenses. Together we bring the ideas, discussions and future plans in a dressed down, creative setting. See you all soon! Paul Epping Chapter Lead SU Dubai

  • New Years Reception

    Emirates Towers

    We would like to start this year with a New Years reception at Area2071 which reflects the ambiance of our future thinking community. We will take the opportunity to reflect on 2018 and what we achieved as well as providing you with the outlook of this year. With the great achievement of the renewal of the chapter license, we want to proceed with expanding our activities to create more awareness about exponential technologies, how it can be used to solved world's biggest problems and discussing the consequences for our society. Rohan Roberts, will present about the urgency of change. As author of the brilliant book: Cosmic Citizens and Moonshot Thinking: Education in an age of Exponential Technologies, 2018, he will lead us through the exciting opportunities for change - on micro-, mezzo- and macro level.

  • Monthly "Moonday"

    Stars N Bars

    This event is meant to engage with our network and stimulate personal discussions about the impact of exponential technologies. It is an open semi-structured meeting, that leads to new themes that are relevant for the MENA region. The discussions revolve round questions such as: what do you think that will change in Dubai over the net 5 years and what evidence do you have for that? Does that count as well for the MENA region? Food and drinks at own expense
