TechXploration's One-Year Celebration - Part One!*

Delivering his research-backed perspective is:

Dr. Jake Dunagan from the Institute for the Future, who will present the "Internet|human Map".

About the talk:

For most of its history, using the Internet has involved conforming and contorting to the logic, architecture, and input/output mechanisms of machine networks. Humans have kneeled before immobile computer screens, tethered our limbs to mice and keyboards, and craned our necks to use the smartphone screens in our hands. The human experience of the Internet, however, will change dramatically over the next decade.

It will place humans at the center—redrawing our networked worlds to fit our native dimensions. And while it will continue to extend human capacities, it will do so in way that retains human proportions.

This new human Internet will enhance and amplify rather than contain and contort our minds and bodies.

Join us to discover how these technologies will create new opportunities and new kinds of experiences in our homes, workplaces, and other contexts of our daily lives.

We will raffle off Internet|human maps (http://www.iftf.org/what-we-do/foresight-toolkit/maps/) at the event.
