This workshop will present a unique opportunity to explore uncharted digital territories. Participants will not only gain a comprehensive understanding of the dynamic world of technology and how it’s impacting everyday life, but will also have the chance to engage with some practical tests in order to explore how their emotional and cognitive skills are affected by the use of smartphone applications, vision enhanced softwares and other AI-generated content.

The workshop will be introduced by a presentation by Pamela Breda, PEEK project leader based at Angewandte University. With her talk, she will provide us with a comprehensive introduction to the current state-of-the-arts interactions between users and technology, sharing insights that challenge conventional wisdom and inspire innovative thinking.

By fostering direct interactions with cutting-edge softwares, the workshop aims to facilitate a deeper understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and complexities that lie ahead in this transformative field.
