As the pace of technological innovation is accelerating, we need to inform ourselves to understand what is means to live in a highly advanced society. In an ongoing lecture and debate series, Pakhuis de Zwijger is exploring our digital society in which humans matter, and invited NNN director Koert van Mensvoort and professor of Stochastic Networks Johan van Leeuwaarden to discuss the topic of Humane Technology.

During the Sign of Time series, Pakhuis de Zwijger welcomes various guest curators who set out to explore the many facets within the process of emerging technologies and its additional social impact. Johan van Leeuwaarden and Koert van Mensvoort both gave an in-depth lecture on their own research, followed by an open dialogue in which the audience was unequivocally invited to participate.

The lectures were recorded and can be seen here.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
