Talent, Technology and Tomorrow: London’s Role in the Future of Work

Thursday, 25th May 2017

9:45am to 10:40am

Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4BS

This talk outlines new facilities that are arising in the hyperconnected internet era within human media spaces. This allows new embodied interaction between humans, species, and computation both socially and physically, with the aim of novel interactive communication and entertainment. Humans can develop new types of communication environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell, which can increase support for multi-person multi-modal interaction and remote presence. In this talk, we present an alternative ubiquitous computing environment and space based on an integrated design of real and virtual worlds. We discuss some different research prototype systems for interactive communication, culture, and play.
