This is very new way of media outreach and news. I’m happy to be a part of it. Featuring Deus Ex too.

This summer, CNN’s brand studio Courageous is partnering with Square Enix®, publisher of SQUARE ENIX interactive entertainment products in the Americas, to host a first-of-its-kind conference on human augmentation. Human by Design will be held at the Paley Center for Media in New York City on August 3, 2016, and explore the intersection of technology and humanity with the objective of bringing together top minds to debate, question, and challenge what it means to be human.

Please visit the Human by Design website for access to the conference agenda, bios of the speakers and more information of The Code:

Square Enix is aligning with Human by Design to support the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided®, the video game developed by Eidos-Montréal and the sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution®, on August 23, 2016. Set in the year 2029, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided features a world that has become so divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear that many countries are enacting harsh laws aimed at segregating mechanically augmented humans and “Naturals” from each other. The many parallels of the near-futuristic Deus Ex Universe® will be explored at the conference, particularly around how technology is rapidly shaping the human condition and the ethics of self-regulation.
