Event description

Description

Since the beginning of society we strive for relationships with others. Science tells us that we do this to increase our chances of survival. Yet, even in steady relationships, many of us feel misunderstood, unwanted and ultimately not loved. Why is that? Is a relationship more than just a biological hack? Is it something more meaningful? Maybe even spiritual? What if there is that perfect partner out there somewhere? What if you could build ‘the one’? Would you replace your partner?

Join the Heliosphere for an all inclusive debate about the future of meaningful relationships and how technology will change it. The Heliosphere revolves around a 360 degree camera which allows online audiences to partake in the debate. The physically present audience sits in a circle around a main round table at which a limited number of members debate directly. The inner circle can vacant their place at any time to let members of the outer circle join. To gain a real-time overview state of the art Speech-to-text extraction summarizes the topics discussed.
