On November 27th, 2012, StarTalk Live brought a little science to the world of dollars and cents at the Business Insider IGNITION conference. Now you're invited to hear astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, comic co-host Eugene Mirman and guest futurists Jason Silva and Melissa Sterry answer questions that lie at the intersection of technology, human biology and urban planning. Will bio-ware and nanotechnology allow humans to reprogram our biology? Can smart-materials, adaptive structures and sensor nets help city planners and policy makers create smart cities that adapt to environmental change the way forests do? Are we really approaching a "technological singularity" of emerging super-intelligence beyond which events cannot be predicted -- and has humanity actually experienced one before?

Co-Host:
Eugene Mirman, comedian

Guests:
Jason Silva, futurist
Melissa Sterry, futurist
