CoMixed- Remixing thoughts on Science and the Future

Posted on: October 28, 2009


An exciting and varied debate about the future, at the Manchester CoMixed discussion.

A series of provocations on the scientific challenges of our time including Climate Change, Digital Economy, Ageing, Food Security and Nanotechnology. Thoughts are remixed into a cooperative production by the Manchester Beacon’s network of people, places and knowledge.

Panellists include:

  • Warren Bramley (Creative Director at Four23)
  • Dr. Martyn Amos (Principle Investigator on Nano-Info-Bio, Manchester Metropolitan University)
  • Professor Remco Polman (Director of Centre for Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences, Principal Investigator Medical Research Council Lifelong Health and Wellbeing Grant)
  • Professor Callum Thomas (Professor of Sustainable Aviation, Centre for Air Transport and the Environment, OMEGA, Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Professor John Whittle (Professor of Software Engineering, Lancaster Business School)
  • Kate Bailey (Senior Research Associate, Cardiff Business School)

John Whittle is currently talking about a vision of the future where we can see into peoples minds, and understand what makes them tick. A previous ‘twitter sceptic’, John now sees twitter as an early indicator of future technology that will increase mutual understanding and relationships in society.

My favourite quote so far is from Martin Amos, and his assertion that “Bio-Hacking already happens in people’s kitchens”.
