As a techno-optimist, Dr. Corinna Lathan believes that we can purposefully design a future where technology enables us to live longer, healthier, more prosperous lives. We've all heard about technology trends such as the Internet of Things, robotics and artificial intelligence, and Virtual Reality. These technologies will impact us profoundly as individuals and as communities, and will connect us by providing the ability to have shared experiences. As we augment human performance, will this result in a Borg collective or in shared and collaborative experiences that bring a collective empathy to society? Dr. Lathan explores the impact of these technologies on us as humans and how we can shape the human-technology interaction to have a positive impact.
