Moderated by: Jan Plass and Raghu Sundaram Panelists: Julia Lane, Kristen Sosulski, Arun Sundararajan

Technology is changing our lives at a breathtaking pace, from social media and big data analytics to smart devices, sensors, crowdsourcing, and robotics. Even though segments of the public have embraced these developments enthusiastically, others view them with trepidation and concern. This panel considers the human side of technology and the data it generates: how various advances are changing the way we work, learn, teach, share, and feel. With backgrounds in education, economics, and analytics, some of NYU’s leading thinkers in technology and data address how current innovation allow us to inhabit, to see, and to make sense of the world in new ways.

From Immersive Video To Animated Selfies, How We Will Express Ourselves In 2016
Technology changes at a rapid pace; however, as human beings, our innate need to be social and communicate our identity hasn’t changed much over time. Before written language, oral stories and images were used to convey information – connecting with one another and sharing is built into our DNA. Today we have more ways to express ourselves than ever before: text, photos, music, video, illustrations, animations, graphics, MEMEs, GIFs, selfies, animated selfies, emoticons, emojis, bitmojis, 360/immersive video, streaming video, podcasts, and more!
