The Coming Age of Empathic ComputingSpeaker: Mark Billinghurst – Auckland, New Zealand
Topic(s): Human Computer Interaction
AbstractCan computers help people better understand one another? Empathic Computing refers to systems that allow people to share what they are seeing, hearing and feeling with others, and so develop more empathy for each other. They do this by combing tools for more natural collaboration, experience capture, and implicit understanding. Drawing on research from leading groups around the work, this talk provides an overview of Empathic Computing, and show how it could change the lives of people for the better. What happens when technology enables you to see the world from another's perspective, and what research is needed to make this happen?
