    Keynote Presentation: The Renaissance of our Species

    Neil Harbisson is the co-founder of The Cyborg Foundation, an organization that promotes the use of cybernetics as a body part to extend human senses and perception. Harbisson has an antenna implanted in his skull that allows him to perceive colours that are outside human vision such as infrareds and ultraviolets. This talk will explore how taking an active part in our own biological evolution is no longer a theory, but an option. Becoming technology, instead of using or wearing technology, opens up the possibility of having additional organs and senses beyond the ones confined to our species. By merging ourselves with technology we can become the designers of our own body and perception; and we can increase our survival possibilities on Earth and in outer space. Are we witnessing the renaissance of our species?

Join Pinterest’s Head of Insights Strategy, Arthur Sevilla, to learn how to harness the power of inspiration to take people from “I dreamed it” to “I did it,” building a better internet along the way.
