How is our relationship with computers changing the way we think and act? Ask Amber Case, a user experience designer and cyborg anthropologist who studies the interactions between man and machine.
Amber’s thoughts on our connection to our new external brains have fascinated audiences at SXSW, and her TED talk, “We are all Cyborgs now”, has been viewed over a million times. Case is the author of An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology and Calm Technology, and the founder of CyborgCamp, an unconference on the future of humans and computers. One of National Geographic’s Emerging Explorers, she is the co-founder and former CEO of Geoloqi, a location-based startup that was acquired by Esri in 2012.
