After the first installment in Seoul in December 2017, A BETTER VERSION OF YOU is now coming to Beijing.
From March 24th to April 1st, A BETTER VERSION OF YOU will provide a showcase of global perspectives on a wide range of new applications and products that shape our present and future. For the duration of nine days, the site of the Goethe-Institute at Beijing’s 798 district will be transformed into a trade show venue, hosting a display of innovative technologies, where artists and tech-developers from across the globe join hand.
A BETTER VERSION OF YOU provides a look into the technological agents that serve as the foundation of contemporary societies on a global scale, from self-learning machines, neural networks and ubiquitous computing, to swarm-based urban planning, personalised experiental gaming, brain-machine interfaces, precision agriculture, alternative online infrastructures and the everyday tools of the entrepreneurial self.
Harnessing perspectives from China, South-Korea, Japan, USA, Russia, South-Africa and Europe, A BETTER VERSION OF YOU will showcase latest advances in defining political and social technologies.
