Redefining what it means to be human

Redefining what it means to be human. At what point does a human stop being a human or a machine start becoming one? We need to start the preparation now to challenge long-held beliefs about humanity so that when humans and machines live together, they can do so without prejudice.

Robert Anderson has been interested in how technology can improve humans’ lives ever since he can remember. He started programming computers at age 10 and has been working in IT for the past 20 years with blue-chip companies to develop IT strategies and roadmaps.
Robert says he likes how ‘TEDxFolkstone cares about developing a group of people who are speakers, not just about people who are doing TED talks.’
He lives in Ashford and is happily married with four children who are ‘a delight to be around’.
