Human Machine Symbiosis

Patti Maes is a visionary thinker.  She was one of the featured speakers at the content-rich ARIA (Augmented Reality in Action) Summit held January 16-17, 2018 at the MIT Media Lab.  Beyond smart phones, augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality, Dr. Maes foresees all of us having a more symbiotic relationship with technology which will help us self-actualize, becoming the people we aspire to be.  This interaction will be defined by: 

  • Systems aware of our context and internal state
  • Devices that augment the user experience seamlessly
  • New symbiotic devices that are proactive, offering suggestions and interventions

I think you'll enjoy her TedX Talk.  It is similar to what she recently shared.
