Technology and the Human Mind: How They Interact and Why it Matters
The uniquely human capacity for innovation has led to the genesis of countless technologies. Critically, these creations influence and interact with the very minds that created them. Be it misinformation online, offloading thinking to devices, or AI taking on tasks at work, the impacts are evident and increasingly important to understand. This talk will consider the intersection points between the human mind and the technologies that are shaping how we live, work, and connect.
Nathaniel Barr, PhD, is a Professor of Creativity and Creative Thinking at Sheridan College and a Scientific Advisor at BEworks. His work covers a variety of topics including creativity, innovation, misinformation and belief, the interrelation between technology and thinking, applied behavioral science, and the importance of understanding the human mind in addressing societal challenges.
