"Androids dream of real sheep" (or more boringly)  "The implications of the things we make"

BY JACK SHEPPARD
@ VOL 23 ON AUG 02, 2018

Empathy is a fundamental part of our human experience but the technology we build and design is at odds with that. So what is empathy, where does it come from and what can we learn from it?

Let’s talk about what it means to be an empathetic being, the effect technology is having on our ability empathise with each other and what we can do to understand each other better, communicate and design more ethical ‘things’ that help people be people.

Compassion for the Darkness

BY EMMY CHAHAL
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 24, 2018

Mental health can be considered an epidemic in North America - but are other countries more effective in providing care to those suffering? Emmy Chahal's talk is informed by her lived experience and personal research into international models that work more compassionately to see the humanity of each person facing mental health challenges. A new model of mental health will be discussed - one that honours the whole person. This new model is Emmy's vision of what mental health care could look like if we bridge the brilliance of the human mind with compassion for the darkness that most of us face at some point in our lives.
