fa MUC Talk: This talk has been previously premiered at VDB17 in Belgrade, on of the biggest technology conferences in eastern Europe, and we're happy to have Daniel on board in Munich!
Instead of using technology to replace people, we should use it to augment ourselves to do things that were previously impossible, to help us make our lives better. Daniel G. Siegel, functionalaesthetics member since 2015, will talk about the humane use of technology and how we can escape the present to invent the future.
The personal computer is only 50 years old yet we still haven't come to
terms with the power this medium grants us. It requires extraordinary
imagination to conceive new ways to work, think and interact with a new
medium. We hype new technologies such as AI, VR or driverless cars,
but they're only reflections, new projections of old technologies &
ideas, powered by progress we've made in hardware, not software.
We predict the future by extrapolating on what's there already. We
build our future based on our past and current experiences, and our
current knowledge shapes our current beliefs. But is that all we can
This talk will focus on how we can escape the present to invent the
future. It will explore the questions we must ask if we are to amplify
our human capabilities in creating applications and technologies.
