The inaugural Future Human event will go ahead this October, but with a twist.

Future Human, the successor event to the award-winning Inspirefest, will take place on 29 and 30 October this year as a hybrid event broadcasting from Dublin.

Attendees will be able to watch live from homes and offices around the world while the event itself unfolds on a state-of-the-art, purpose-built stage in Dublin.

Many speakers will appear in person, with appropriate social distancing measures in place, while others will be dialled in for discussion on vital topics such as ‘Chasing a Covid-19 Vaccine’, ‘Dispelling Remote Work Myths’, ‘Mixed Reality in Today’s Normal’ and ‘Your Data, Your Property’.

Silicon Republic’s inaugural Future Human line-up includes Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Brittany Kaiser, former NASA astronaut Joan Higginbotham, Félix Lajeunesse of the Emmy Award-winning Félix & Paul studio, composer and Oscars ceremony conductor Eimear Noone and young entrepreneur Shane Curran, to name just a few. Many more announcements are also expected.
