LifeCycle: The End of Sex?

When algorithms can analyze an embryo and recommend which should be fertilized, will sex as we know it become an outdated, analog technology? Could data and wearable sensors transform the way we conceive? Join us for the first Creation event of our 2019 LifeCycle series as we examine thought-provoking questions about how technology will transform ideas about sexual reproduction.

Already, advances in genetics technology have created incredible opportunities for parents who might otherwise be unable to conceive. But as advancements offer greater control - even veering toward “optimization” - of tomorrow’s children, we face new ethical, legal, and moral questions.

We welcome Henry Greely, Director, Stanford University Center for Law and the Biosciences and the author of “The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction; Jyotsana Saha, Head of Growth at Future Family; and Lea von Bidder, Co-Founder and CEO of Ava Science, Inc., which creates wearable sensors for fertility tracking in women.
