The evolution of tech (and Silicon Brighton 👀) holds many possibilities.
Join us live from PLATF9RM – Hove on Thursday 12th October for our next Silicon Brighton Leaders event where we’ll be making an announcement that will pave the way for the future of Silicon Brighton. We’ve got some amazing stuff in store for 2024 and we can’t wait to tell you about it!
We’ll then hear from Amy Lewin (Editor at Sifted, reporting on startups and tech in Europe) for a very interesting talk, ‘Silicon Folly? How tech could be our salvation — or our downfall’.
Killer robots, deadly viruses, enormous inequality: there are many ways new technology could let us fly too close to the sun and spell disaster for humanity. Done right, though, innovations in AI, climate tech and biology could mean great things for our health — and the planet too.
Amy will look at some of the most ground-breaking technologies startups are developing, what that could unleash — and why we as a society must watch closely.
