IS4SI 2019

Professor Terrence Deacon invited the Human Energy Project to participate in the 2019 summit Conference of the International Society for the Study of Information at UC Berkeley which took place on June 2nd to June 6.
HEP, with the help of its team, developed and presented the program for one of the mini-conferences, within the main conference, titled the Future of the Global Infosphere (read it here).
The mini-conference was very successful in that it attracted many participants and resulted in significant papers dealing with HEP’s key topics.
