Augmented Reality is about “Living in the real world” Says Dr. Helen Papagiannis in her New Book, Augmented Human

Dr. Helen Papagiannis is a world-leading speak in the field of Augmented Reality (AR). In the just-released Augmented Human—the first non-technical, accessible take on AR—Papagiannis reveals how this technological revolution will impact us and our organizations, and the opportunities that lie within this rapidly growing industry. 

“It’s not just about augmenting reality, it’s about augmenting humanity.”

— Dr. Helen Papagiannis

Augmented Reality blurs the boundary between the physical and digital worlds in ways that we’re only starting to map out. In AR’s current exploration phase, innovators are beginning to create compelling and contextually rich applications that enhance a user’s everyday experiences, from military training to Pokémon Go. In  Augmented Human: How Technology is Shaping the New Reality, Papagiannis explains how AR is evolving, how we can take advantage of it, and where it can take us as a society.

Papagiannis is internationally recognized as a leading expert in AR. Her work spans over a decade in the field as a researcher, designer, and technology evangelist. She is the former Chief Innovation Officer at Infinity Augmented Reality Inc. (New York and Tel Aviv), and was a Senior Research Associate at York University’s Augmented Reality Lab. Derived from her exciting research, Papagiannis’ keynotes on AR present vivid and crucial information for designers, developers, entrepreneurs, students, educators, business leaders, innovators, artists, or for those who are simply curious what the future holds in store. 


Augmented Reality is published by O’Reilly and available through Amazon and other outlets.
