This is the biggest European festival about 'The Future', with Sophia the robot amongst the guests this year. Attendees could see what the future holds, and could listen to presentations about “How to fight against tech monopolies?”, “Is creativity overrated in business?”, “How to solve the migration crisis?”, and “Should we be afraid of humanoid robots?”
Launched in June 2015, Brain Bar Budapest always scrutinises the boundaries between man, machine and the universe - through innovative visions of world-renowned masterminds.
Renowned for its speakers who visit Budapest to give thought-provoking presentations about the present day and what the future might be. This year included Production Designer of the Dark Night Trilogy Nathan Crowley, influential politician Margrethe Vestager, bestselling author of “Reading Lolita in Tehran” Dr. Azar Nafisi
Over the two days the event covers everything from business, geopolitics, money, the Earth and artificial intelligence. Held at the Corvinus University of Budapest, you don’t need a degree to go, but you almost felt you had one after attending. See you there next year!
