TEDx "Being Human"

Being Human reflects on Deepa’s personal and professional journey into the world of immersive technologies and the therapeutic benefits of virtual reality and pain management. She shares her insights into how as you begin to explore the capabilities of technology, the more important the question and answer of what it is to be human becomes. Deepa Mann-Kler is an award-winning artist, public speaker, author, educator and technologist. She is known for her large scale public artwork neon installations as featured in Lumiere. A frequent speaker at conferences she covers the intersection between creativity, innovation, technology, health and wellbeing, all with a value basis firmly grounded in technology for good, diversity, inclusion and positive social impact.
