About Future Human

Silicon Republic, Europe's leading tech news service, brings you Future Human, the evolution of their successful Inspirefest event. From the stage in our purpose-built studio in Dublin, we’ll be beaming out to homes and offices around the world in October. Many of our speakers and collaborators will be live on stage in our state-of-the-art studio, with all the requisite physical distancing and sanitisation in place, while overseas speakers will be dialled in seamlessly to the stage and moderated by our amazing team of chairs and moderators.

Join over 3,000 visionary attendees from more than 52 countries, plus leading minds from life, science and tech, mining the future of robotics and AI, urban landscapes, security and business, life science, workplaces and our planet – and how a global pandemic has accelerated so many of these key trends. Future Human will continue to be the most inclusive and forward-looking event the world has ever seen.
