4th Annual Workshop on Geoethical Nanotechnology
(Nanowerk News) Terasem Movement, Inc. will hold its 4th Annual Workshop on Geoethical Nanotechnology on Sunday, July 20, 2008. The workshop will explore what geoethical management, if any, is appropriate for the nanotechnology necessary for cryonic revival and embodiment of downloaded cyber-consciousness.
Reconstitution of human consciousness through cryonic revival or downloading cyber-consciousness into bio-nano bodies and similar vessels comes with its technological issues and problems. In addition to these technological issues, there are legal and oversight concerns related to the use of these yet-to-be defined technologies. The level of management and oversight required for these technologies are the focus of these sessions.
Each workshop presentation will last 15-20 minutes followed by a 20 minute formal question and answer period during which questions from the worldwide audience will be addressed.
After the workshop, presentations will be archived online for free public access on this website and at www.TerasemCentral.org.
