Extending Human Imagination: Dr. Helen Papagiannis’ Augmented Expo Talk

This June, Augmented Reality (AR) expert Dr. Helen Papagiannis was a guest speaker at “Superpowers to the People: Augmented World Expo 2015,” which took place in Santa Clara, California. In her talk, titled “Advancing AR for Humanity,” Dr. Papagiannis took the opportunity to highlight her hotly-anticipated book, Augmented Human: How Technology Is Shaping the New Reality: a collection of dispatches from the augmented frontier that span a decade of innovative research.

In the video, Dr. Papagiannis stresses the near-limitless potential for AR to be a force of good, with both physiological and emotional repercussions for individuals and organizations alike. “It’s no longer about technology,” she says. “It’s about augmenting reality for humanity, and having a positive impact on the world.”

As author and designer, former Chief Innovation Officer at Infinity Augmented Reality Inc., and former Senior Research Associate at York University’s Augmented Reality Lab, Dr. Papagiannis is not only one of world’s leading authorities on AR, but also one of its most charismatic, articulate, and plainspoken champions. As she does in this video—and in each of her passionate keynote speeches—she clearly demonstrates human implications of this rapidly changing industry. As AR is poised to “impact the fundamental way we interact as humans,” having such an informed guide is absolutely necessary.

In her cutting-edge talks, Dr. Helen Papagiannis helps us understand the significance of Augmented Reality. With great gust, Dr. Papagiannis outlines the opportunities AR presents for business, design, and culture, and how it will forever change the way we live, work, and play.
