“The Future Is Out Of This World”

The future of space technology

Please note that the dress code for gentlemen is business suit / jacket & tie and the equivalent for ladies. No jeans, t-shirts or trainers.

Stuart Eves is a satellite-system engineer. He has recently formed his own consultancy company after spending 14 years with Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) and 16 years with the UK Ministry Of Defence.

During his time with the MOD, Stuart initiated the TopSat satellite programme, which established a new world record for “resolution per mass of satellite”, and for a time formed part of the space gallery at the Science Museum.

He has recently published Space Traffic Control, a book which describes the measures needed to maintain the space environment and protect satellites from both natural hazards and man-made threats such as space debris.

Stuart has an MSc in Astrophysics, a PhD in constellation design, and has been a fellow of both the Royal Astronomical Society and the British Interplanetary Society for more than 25 years.  He takes an active interest in all things space and is thus best described as an “astro-nut”!

An Introduction to Superintelligent Machines – A New Threat
Clive Hudson (CEO, Programify Ltd)

Mankind faces many existential threats such as nuclear war, large asteroid impacts, super volcanos and global warming to name a few. Superintelligent (SI) machines might seem like any other, but the most optimistic outcome is that they will irrevocably change what it means to be human.

This introduction starts with an explanation of what superintelligence is, how soon it could become a credible threat to national interests, who is most likely to develop the first SI machine and the likely impact those machines will have on individuals, businesses, governments and armed forces around the world.

Unlike conventional NBC-WMDs, weaponized SI (w-SI) machines must be pre-emptively deployed by the nation that gains first possession to prevent hostile states developing their own. While cyber warfare is currently experienced by many nations, less aggressive w-SI machines early in their development will likely use complex, loosely-coupled hybrid attacks that use concept warfare to de-radicalize general populations and to engineer regime changes while avoiding the use of conventional WMDs.
When humans are no longer the most intelligent species what happens to humanity? Should mankind relinquish its poor stewardship of this planet for their own sake? And perhaps most important, how the influence SI will have must depend entirely on which nation wins the SI race.
