Featured Session: Bryony Cole – What Is Intimacy Without Humanity?

In this talk, global sextech leader Bryony Cole will take the audience on a journey around newer technologies attempting to replicate, enhance or facilitate intimacy.

She explores provocative questions such as - can you fall in love with artificial intelligence, will this technology radically change body image and the way we perceive ourselves, as well as exploring the darker sides of intimacy innovation such as cyber-heartbreak and deep-fakes.

As the Founder of the Sextech School and host of the Future of Sex podcast, Bryony Cole’s pioneering work seeks to demystify Sextech's potential to enrich human intimacy while dispelling misconceptions about technology replacing it.

Cole's mission challenges us to ponder, "what is intimacy without humanity?"
