While it’s still early days for mass adoption of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality (VR+), imagine where business, the arts, and society might be later this century?

Paris-based VR expert and advocate Naomi Roth, in conversation with Robert C. Wolcott, Kellogg School of Management professor and Co-Founder of Kellogg Innovation Network, will explore how VR+ might change the game for arts, media, society— even the experience of being human.

What opportunities and threats might we face as we transition to a coming post-virtual world?

Naomi Roth launched Virtuality for Reality in 2016, an international online open-door community bringing together professionals, researchers and VR directors inspired by VR for good. She was invited the same year to co-create an innovation lab (on VR/AR/AI technologies) for a multinational startup, XXII GROUP then worked inside the laboratory on the elaboration of new lines of research.

As of today she gives lectures at French Universities and collaborates with action research projects destined to understand how environmental influences affect our choices and behavior.

This event is part of the French Innovation week organized by the French Consulate and supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
