  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.
  • Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech
    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Recorded: Apr 25 2017 48 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.
  • Girls Can Code - It is Never Too Early to Start the Conversation
    Girls Can Code - It is Never Too Early to Start the Conversation Anita R. Wood, Assistant Professor, Computer Information Technology at Pennsylvania College of Technology Recorded: Apr 24 2017 40 mins
    As a professor in a STEM career path, programming, I frequently ask my female student “How did you become interested in this career?” The answer seems to center on one fact – “My parents exposed me to computers when I was younger. As I became more and more interested they helped me understand there was a career in this.”

    This early introduction to computer helps my female students overcome another observation I had made – girls feel like boys have been ‘engineering’ or ‘coding’ for a long time.

    The stereotypical comment “Boys play with Legos and robots, and girls play with dolls and tea sets,” this seems to support this observation.

    So, how do we address the lack of females entering into STEM careers? I propose we start at home.

    This webinar addresses some of the obstacles we must overcome with regards to leveling the playing field between girls entering STEM and boys.

    About the Presenter:
    Anita R. Wood is an Assistant Professor for Computer Information Technology at the Pennsylvania College of Technology.
