Why does the lecture schedule keep changing?
Because 'the future' is a moving target, we have a different lecture series every semester. The guest lecturers are invited based on availability and relevance to the course. That said, the marking scheme and class times will not be affected.
Who can take this course?
Graduate and undergraduate students from all faculties are welcome. No necessary prerequisites. If you're unsure or are interested in attending lectures prior to registration, feel free to drop by. We would be happy to have you visit!
What will I learn in this class?
As stated above, lectures are modified every semester. Core lectures on ethics, artificial intelligence, regenerative medicine, and quantum biology will recur each term, but other subjects may be added and changed as required. For last semester's topics, see the schedule linked above.
