Galit Ariel explores how technology and humans interact with and influence each other, focusing on how mixing the digital and the physical creates a new/hybrid experiential space.

Why you should listen

Galit Ariel is passionate about a future that will integrate technology into our everyday lives, but not control it. As a thought leader in augmented reality, she explores the wild and imaginative side of immersive technologies, but also their impact on our cultures, behaviors and ethical issues related to them. Her book Augmenting Alice: The Future of Identity, Experience and Reality offers a context and futurescape to augmented reality applications, considering its impact on our public, personal and intimate space, that ultimately alters the way we experience reality and our sense of self. Her goal is to bridge the gap between digital, physical and mental spaces to create tools & platforms that help people experience these worlds in new ways.
