The Connected Human

This period in time has shown that more people are becoming connected to themselves and to the world. We are no longer just thumbing through life but yearning for deeper, more authentic connections. However, can we embrace a more humanized experience where intention is the new currency measured beyond time and engagement particularly now as we are in a world where over 6 billion smartphones occupy our visual attention? But we are quickly evolving to include other senses that aren’t limited to AR, VR, MR, or RR. So how are we going to adapt and reinvent in a world of these new interfaces? A place where sight is now joined with sound and motion? Welcome to hearable, feelable and wearable technology—powered by data, intelligence, sensors and more. How does this impact consumer behavior and ensure this helps make us more human and how is it that possible with the rate of change in technology?
