The Ultimate Selfie: Musings on the Future of Our Human Identity

Speaker:  Jacquelyn F Morie – Los Angeles, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design

Abstract

Identity in today's world is being radically redefined by our access to sophisticated technologies that allow us to share images of ourselves ubiquitously, don a variety of avatars to connect with others in virtual environments, scan ourselves in 3D, and even 3D print physical “selfies”.  We have more personal control than ever for how we present ourselves in today’s social and connected media. Scientists and developers make ever more sophisticated simulations, but could our representations in these programs be even more personal and meaningful? This talk presents a bold plan for ultimate “selfies” that learn how we behave as we use them, and which become a poignant and meaningful legacy we could leave behind. These have the potential to revolutionize the way we think about our once and future selves.
