The World Economic Forum hosts Global Future Council on Neurotechnologies in Dubai (November 10–12th)

Quick heads-up on a very promis­ing event.

Descrip­tion: Quick­ly devel­op­ing neu­rotech­nolo­gies will have an impact on entire indus­tries, gov­ern­ments, and soci­eties in the future. The Glob­al Future Coun­cil on Neu­rotech­nolo­gies will explore these tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments and their eth­i­cal impli­ca­tions for soci­ety. The coun­cil will out­line eth­i­cal prin­ci­ples in using data and tech­nol­o­gy for screen­ing and ear­ly diag­nos­tics of men­tal ill­ness and neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases.

Overview of the general initiative:

The World Eco­nom­ic Forum’s Glob­al Future Coun­cils are the world’s fore­most inter­dis­ci­pli­nary knowl­edge net­work ded­i­cat­ed to pro­mot­ing inno­v­a­tive think­ing to shape a sus­tain­able and inclu­sive future for all.

The net­work con­venes more than 700 of the most rel­e­vant and knowl­edge­able thought lead­ers from acad­e­mia, gov­ern­ment, busi­ness and civ­il soci­ety, grouped in exper­tise-based, the­mat­ic coun­cils. It is an invi­ta­tion-only com­mu­ni­ty, and mem­bers are nom­i­nat­ed for a one-year peri­od.
