For more than 50,000 years, Homo sapiens ruled the world. “Wise man” dominated thanks to the ability to cooperate and communicate effectively in big groups. We were able to build cities, write books, create incredible technology. We solved many important problems on our agenda, and continue looking for new things to add to the list.
As the pace of human evolution continues to increase, we can’t help but wonder: what will our lives be like at the end of this century? Will they be completely changed by the next technological, environmental, social or genetical evolution? Will Homo sapiens continue being world’s dominant species? Or will we evolve into a completely new species soon?
This year's TEDxLausanne theme is "Homo Futuris," dedicated to finding new ways for addressing our dreams and concerns about the future. Join us in this discussion!
