Join Dr. Alan Cowen, CEO of Hume AI, and Arjun Nagedran, Co-Founder & CTO of Mursion, with Matt Forte in our episode on empathy and augmented reality (AR). We discuss how technology is poised to bring more empathy into the world, bridging physical, cultural, and demographic divides. Can augmented reality reveal and help us combat our prejudices? Can it serve as a liaison between people who communicate differently? Learn how companies like Mursion are already using AI-enhanced AR to coach people on how to be more empathic and communicate better in the workplace.
We begin with Dr. Alan Cowen discussing how we can preserve empathy in a world of digital communication. Text, voice, and even video calls are imperfect conduits of the wide array of expressive signals we rely upon to empathize with others. Using augmented reality, can we augment human empathy?
