It’s 2033, less than ten years away.

What does daily life look like in world where a new sentient intelligence may be among us? An artificial intelligence on par with, or surpassing our own. This would be an epoch defining development in human civilisation.

Join Diplosphere’s visual journey into the future, examining various aspects of daily life impacted by AI. We will explore both the upsides and downsides with experts from Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world, in the short, medium and long-terms.

The conference will help New Zealand design a world-leading approach to this powerful technology as it develops rapidly.
