Tiedeluento: Surreal Embodiments Through Virtual Reality and Robotics
In his talk, Professor Steven LaValle will tell us about virtual reality technology, which allows anyone to have an unreal first-person experience. The focus will be on creating embodiment illusions, which can cause the user to perceive herself or others completely differently. Imagine having a completely different body as you interact with others who have also changed their bodies. This could have a profound impact on society through the unprecedented ability to cultivate empathy towards others by experiencing the world from their perspective.
