Part Two: Enhanced Realities 11:50 - 12:50 

 

This session will explore the realities from the perspective of others who share our world e.g. the humble bumble bee. We will also learn how we can enhance our reality using our senses in different ways e.g. in food and drink. Finally we will discover a new world of choices and consequence.

 

Kim Arazi, CEO IN3 - 'Are We Losing Our Common Sense(s)?  How Immersive Experiences can help us Reconnect'

The rapid advance of technology has inadvertently led to the decline of everyday sensory stimulation.  In exchange for convenience, we are numbing our senses, which could lead to the numbing of our cognitive processes, eventually equating us to the very same robots that we are creating.

 

We can, however, reverse this. Instead of using technology to disconnect us, we can turn it into a tool with which to connect back to ourselves, to each other and to the world around us. By resurrecting our senses through immersive experiences, we can learn to challenge assumptions, bring awareness to our biases, break down barriers and become more empathetic, conscious human beings. And maybe preserve our humanity.
