BRAVE NEW WORLD is an annual conference for people who want to know what the future holds in store and how this will affect their business, policies and life. On Monday, Tuesday 9-10 November 2020, the worlds of culture, philosophy, science, technology and storytelling will collide. We want to discuss what ethical and societal impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

This conference is for people who want to go beyond their own field of interest, who want to network with others with innovative mindset. Brave New World is meant for professionals coming from (applied) science, industry, (semi) government and the creative industry.

UK book launch – Brave New Human, Reflections on the Invisible

On June the 17th, Brave New World and Regent’s University London will be organising an online UK book launch for our latest publication – Brave New Human, Reflections on the Invisible.

Brave New Human – Reflections on the Invisible

Brave New World Conference challenged scientists, artists, writers and philosophers from all over the world to answer a question most people are not only wondering about but, after quite some months of uncertainties, even long for — How will our world look like after corona. Will the COVID-19 pandemic have a lasting effect on us, on our society and on how we see our the world? We bundled their visionary answers, ideas, strategies and arguments in Brave New Human – Reflections on the Invisible to give you an insight in a possible future post-Corona world.

Brave New World launches publishing house

Every year, we bring the most innovative thinkers in culture, politics, business and society together, to discuss how future technologies will affect business, policies and life. And now (especially now!) our discussions will reach beyond our conference halls. So we are launching a brand new publishing house that will take the ideas of Brave New World to your doorstep. The books of Bot Publishers will revolve around the same topics as our conference: future technologies and their ethical and societal impact.
