Meetup : Less Wrong Israel Meetup (Tel Aviv): Futurism and The Future
Discussion article for the meetup : Less Wrong Israel Meetup (Tel Aviv): Futurism and The Future
We’re going to have a meetup on Thursday, July 24th at Google Israel’s offices, Electra Tower, 98 Yigal Alon st., Tel Aviv.
This time will be a discussion of Futurism—but not necessarily relating to AI. Body and mind modifications, utopias, and everything in between. Vadim Kosoy will open up the session by telling us about possible utopias, safeguards for self-modification and more.
Afterwards we’ll have a semi-structured discussion where we’ll discuss about our preferences for the future, and anything else relating to what’s behind the horizon.
We’ll start the meetup at 19:00, and we’ll go on as much as we like to. (We’ve had great success with the earlier hour last meetup and so we’re continuing on the trend)
Please come on time, as we will begin the discussions and talks close to when we start. But, if you can only come later, thats totally ok!
We’ll meet at the 29th floor of the building (Note: Not where Google Campus is). If you arrive and cant find your way around, call Anatoly who is graciously hosting us at 054-245-1060.
Note that we are trying a transition to a meet once every two weeks. This is to allow people who cant make it to a meetup to not have to wait a whole month to meet again, and because we’d like to have both subject based and social meetups and doing one meetup a month would make that hard.
If you have any question feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 054-533-0678.
