Title: Augmenting human capabilities through human technology partnership
This talk will introduce a new trend in advanced technology development and research in the nation, emphasizing the role of technological tools as co-working partners that help expand people’s intellectual and social capacities. A number of studies have been conducted to examine the relationships between digital artificial beings and learners from diverse disciplines and across age groups. As I present some examples of the studies, I invite the audience to think about what this trend means to educators and technology designers.
