Title : Superception: Exploring new ‘Self’ in the integration of humans & computers
Time : Fri., Nov. 12. 1:30pm EST
When computers and humans integrate, to what extent are we ourselves? Computers are already no longer tools of humans, but are gaining the ability to make decisions and actions beyond humans. Furthermore, with the phenomenal penetration of tele-conversation, tele-presence, and virtual space, we are already existing through computers. When humans integrate with such computers and acquire abilities and different bodies beyond our original human nature, to what extent will we be ourselves? Throughout my recent projects, I would like to explore what the “self” will be like when computers and humans will integrate.
