Brain Bar returns to Budapest

The Brain Bar lecture series will take place between May 30th and 31st at Corvinus University.

This year’s Brain Bar lecture series will feature internationally-renowned scholars such as psychology-guru Jordan Peterson, network science specialist Albert-Lászlo Barabási and robotics artist Ken Goldberg.

According to a report by Magyar Nemzet, cryptocurrencies, dinosaurs, post humanism and big data will be among the main threads.

Organizer Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy said the event looks for two, equally important traits when it comes to choosing the right speaker. First of all, they must be excellent, highly-trained storytellers able to maintain a certain level of excitement amongst the members of the audience. Equally importantly, they should have achieved something unique in their respective field - though what this entails changes on a regular basis.

Founded in 2015, Brain Bar has grown from a small conference to an annual event with thousands of attendees. Exploring technological developments and economic trends from a humanistic perspective, the event attained popularity due to its modern, contemporaneous atmosphere, and its emphasis on the free exchange of ideas.
