Indeed, contrary to the general perception that regards these technologies as the preserve of the young, the privileged and the technologically savvy, Dr. Narciso proposes that the potential (and the immediate reality) for these emerging technologies to deliver meaningfully freeing experiences is much more significant with those who are currently living with debilitating, or progressively limiting, physical, economic, mental, and cognitive challenges. Dr. Narciso not only discusses his practical work in the field (designing and building solutions using these technologies), but also engages in the conversation on several interesting questions that the real-life application of these technologies are opening up, most profoundly the need to refactor core concepts such as Identity, Presence, Memory, Truth, Meaning, and Being.
