Speakers

XR promises us new superpowers, both virtually and in the real world, in our daily lives. Depending on whether our information is used for or against us, it also has the potential to manipulate and enslave us.

Either way, XR is coming soon in a big way. How can we understand the risks, and what steps can we take to build the brightest future possible?

Join a veteran XR designer and technologist who has wrestled with these questions for close to 30 years. He's helped companies like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Disney make decisions on billion-dollar projects using creative prototyping and strategic design, with an emphasis on the ethical implications.
