In the range of consequences that arise from our relationship with technology there is a key that concerns our day to day: we are already cyborgs, hybrids between organism and machine. How many people do we know who are not connected? Although reality does not correspond to the romanticized image of science fiction movies, we already depend on mobile phones, computers, wireless interconnection networks. But how can we use technology as a simple tool, instead of letting technology trap us?
This talk raises the need to rethink our relationship with the artificial intelligences that surround us and to propose mechanisms to design less intrusive technologies. It will be, among others, the concept of Calm Technology coined by Amber Case, whose objective is that the technology attract the user’s attention in a fluid way only when necessary, while remaining on the periphery the rest of the time.
