Insight Augmented Human Demonstrator Event
Thu 23 March 2017, 12:30 – 16:00 GMT
Insight has an excellent track record of achievement in research and innovation related to measurement or enhancement of human performance in all walks of life. This work is feeding into the emerging 'Augmented Human' research theme in Insight. The Augmented Human concept is based on being able to harness the potential in bringing multimodal data sources together in a way that assists the person in becoming a more effective actor in terms of their interaction with the world around them. Achieving a more effective ‘augmented human’ relies on augmenting our capacity in terms of intelligence, decision-making and performance against a backdrop of giving us control over our data. With this in mind, there are 3 elements to the theme, Augmented Cognition, Augmented Performance, and Augmented Privacy.
On March 23rd at Croke Park Stadium, Insight Centre for Data Analytics will be hosting a public event to showcase this work and bring the Augmented Human concept to a wider audience. We hope you can join us on the day, the event is free but please register here as numbers are limited.
