Session 2 - October 22, 2019
Meet Your Digital Twin is a look into the future of your digital likeness and the physical legacy that (you think) you are leaving behind. Humans are becoming virtual and robots are becoming feeling humanoids. Imagine the near future where your digital twin has agency over your physical self. Your twin has more “street cred” than your physical self. Sending your twin to events because your physical self can’t make it will be socially OK. Your likeness & legacy are fully captured. This is a talk about the Metaverse, creativity, ownership and looking at your own self through the lens of volumetric captures, digital DNA and the land rush to (re)create humans.
