Presented by the fantastic Pamela Pavliscak author of Emotionally Intelligent Design: Rethinking How We Create Products.

Our smartphones don’t know if we are having a good day or a bad day. Our cars could care less about compassion. Our home assistants are barely aware if we are shouting in frustration or just joking around. Technology is developing more IQ, but it lacks EQ. At the same time, technology’s hidden operating system seems to move between emotional extremes, from moral outrage to ironic distance. The emotional struggle is real but the future can be different. In this talk, Pamela looks 30 years into the future to envision how we can have a future with feeling.

-An overview of the emotion tech landscape, from AI to VR to haptics

-The possibilities, limitations, and dangers of mixing tech and emotion

-A roadmap for an emotionally intelligent and empathetic future

We will also be raffling off a few copies of her book Emotionally Intelligent Design.
