SESSION TRACK:
The Future is Now

Upgrade your life by hacking your sense of time.  Technology has twisted our relationship with time beyond recognition. What started as a 24-hour news cycle has morphed into a perpetual now, relentlessly grinding away at our civility. Humans are evolving our first new sense as cyborgs, chronoception. Just as real as sight, taste, touch, sound, and smell, this new visceral time sense is abruptly stunting our ability to communicate with each other. Explore the emerging tech landscape of chronobiology.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Reveal the steps of using technology to slow down the relentless pace of life.
  2. Learn how to design programs and services to help people find peace through the lens of time.
