The creation of new technologies such as augmented/virtual reality and artificial intelligence (A.I.) have questioned our relationship with reality. Fake news, deep fakes change how we see the world and influence the decisions we make while the creation of new realities lets us explore our reality in new ways.
In this talk we explore the nature of reality from a psychological perspective. Is reality what it seems to be or is it a construct of our conscious experience? And what does this mean for the future relationship with technology. What is clear is that when our relationship with technologies becomes more intimate, the nature of who we are and what our reality is, will change inevitably.
Dirk Bollen is a psychologist with a specialisation in Human Technology Interaction (HTI) and passionate about how future technologies change the way we work, learn, think and interact with each other. In his talks he explores how business and society are being disrupted by new technologies.
