GS04 Technology Trends That Will Enhance Human Performance

11:15 AM - 12:30 PM PT
Friday, October 28

We’ve all heard about technology trends such as the Internet of Things, robotics and artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. These technologies will impact us profoundly as individuals and as communities and will connect us by providing the ability to have shared experiences in life, work, and learning. As we augment human performance, will this result in a Borg collective or in shared and collaborative experiences that bring a collective empathy to society? How will these changes impact the ways that we learn, and what does that mean for the future of training and education?

In our closing keynote for DevLearn 2022, Dr. Cori Lathan explores the impact of emerging technologies on us as humans, and what that may mean for the future of learning and development. By attending this closing session, you’ll receive tips on how we can understand and prepare for the changes brought about by these trends and discover how we can shape the human-technology interaction towards the most positive impact.
