In-Vitro Intelligence (IVI) suggests an intelligent, bioengineered system harbouring living neural networks that function as brains outside of the body. The workshop hosts believe it is inevitable that IVI driven entities will grow more sophisticated and find widespread use in, for instance, their IVI driven “Surrogate Performers”. The workshop touches upon the challenges: What does it mean to bioengineer IVI Surrogate Performers? And what are the practical, cultural and ethical implications?
