Modern Cosmism Conference

Dates: October 10, 2015
Location: New York City, New York

The conference will address fundamental philosophical issues that arise with the future design and use of artificial consciousness, mind uploading and cyber-immortality. How will our concepts of subjectivity, perception, and morality change, if we will live in mega-consciousness environment where you can experience multiple presence, personality, gender (or no gender at all) and unlimited kinds of artificial feelings? What is a possible ramification and consequences of digital consciousness? Cosmism suggested that the profound nature of the reality is also digital and it utilizes existential source code coming from Being that is using “radiant humanity” for its own preservation and modification.

Our keynote and plenary speakers are well-known international protagonists of Cosmism, Transhumanism and interdisciplinary researchers. Their lectures will discuss the most important current issues of Modern Cosmism from the point of view of philosophy, technology, ethics, robotics, psychology, and anthropology.
