Andy Miah in OpenMind 2012
Coinciding with the anniversary, the community organized the first meeting dedicated to knowledge and dissemination, in order to publicize and discuss the themes and content provided by www.bbvaopenmind.com The event included the presentation of the book Values and Ethics for the 21st century by the Chairman and CEO of BBVA, Francisco González, the launch of the new OpenMind application for Ipad and the OpenMind 2012 debate with authors Sandip Tiwari, Saskia Sassen and Andy Miah. Andy Miah focused his conference on the humanistic side of ethics, reminding us of the three levels at which human beings can improve: professionally, socially and individually. As a philosopher, Miah asked himself whether technology has changed us and if when we talk about being better human beings we refer only to the physical aspects or also to our background: "Our "biocultural" capital will determine our behaviour; we will be able to make body, and even cognitive, modifications.
