Human-Machine Interfaces & The Future of Interaction

Come explore the boundaries of how humans and machines will interact in the next century

As the Spring session of the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest comes to a close, we thought it was only appropriate to consider the human and societal impacts of new machines and their interactions with humans. These interactions are already starting to take place, but what will change first and how does it impact our daily lives? What does this new world create in terms of communication opportunities?

Of course, this event will also include audience interaction--bring your smartphone and get ready to voice your opinion.
