Just as its name states. The Philosophers’ Salon is an inevitable gem of the program because questions, as always, were raised and thoughts awakened. Join the philosophers, misfits, and skeptics in sessions around the questions asked about what these new realities are, how real they are, why we need them and basically…what the hell is going on!
Philosophers’ Salon will tackle topics around Content, Business, Tech and Research such as,
- Having relationships with virtual characters
- The mind as the ultimate user interface whereby VR will be controlled by the human brain, and
- Can the next reality be female?
Steven Spielberg’s next movie, Ready Player One (originally a novel by Ernest Cline) that’s to be released on the 30th March next year is about the “missing millions” who had nowhere to go but the virtual world they call Oasis.
Here’s what Spielberg shared at the Cannes Film Featival: “I think we’re moving into a dangerous medium with virtual reality. The only reason I say it is dangerous is because it gives the viewer a lot of latitude not to take direction from the storytellers but make their own choices of where to look. I just hope it doesn’t forget the story when it starts enveloping us in a world that we can see all around us and make our own choices to look at.”
