Across Voids: use of Immersive and AI Technologies to support grief
Speaker: Norah Lorway
This talk gives an overview of Nora’s research over the last 8 years of immersive and AI technologies and their potential use in supporting grief and bereavement. She will discuss a tool that assists in supporting those going through bereavement, her future work and the future potential for immersive tech in mental health support.
The Possibilities of Immersive Mediation
Speaker: Marcus Smith
Deep thinking has led to me the idea of ‘Immersive Mediation’ – tried and tested mediation processes conducted in a projection mapped room, to assist parties in working towards a negotiated agreement of a dispute or difference. The art of negotiation is sorely needed in an age of seemingly increasing polarisation, from Parliament thrashing out Brexit, to family mediators helping couples part on amicable terms and handling the growth in hate crime, effective mediation is growing in demand.
Back To Reality: Real World Immersion and the Practice of Resilience
Speaker: Harmeet Chagger-Khan
