APA Technology, Mind & Society Conference, 2018

On April 15, 2018 by Elizabeth Casa de Calvo

I had such an amazing time at the APA Technology, Mind & Society Conference! This is the first conference (that I’m aware of) to blend my two favorite subjects: Psychology and Technology. The hardest part was deciding which sessions to attend. Some of my favorites involved research related to human/machine interaction, designing social learning machines, encouraging empathy through robotics, social robotics in general, ways to enhance learning and health through technology, and (the most lofty goal of all) improving¬†humanity through relational AI. All so very fascinating… I’m still noodling ideas for future student research projects. I will certainly attend next year’s conference! Big thanks to all of the speakers and organizers!¬†¬†
