Kareem Yusuf: A question of tone

About this talk: Technology can be dehumanizing. Even our day-to-day personal interactions conducted in digital bursts risk losing the heart of who are. Kareem Yusuf shows how people have aimed to embed emotional “tone” into their digital lives, from text-messages to data. He explores why, in today’s fully digitized and globalized world, we must strive to incorporate tone into everything we do.
