READ EMOTIONS, ZOOM IN ON SOUNDS? LOOK INTO THE FUTURE AT IFA+ SUMMIT

Poker face? Unnecessary – if you’re dealing with Poppy Crum. The senior scientist at Dolby Laboratories has the technologies that read others like an open book. At the IFA+ Summit, she explains how this can help millions of people. It’s one of many highlights at the summit. In workshops, participants learn how audio recording can change forever – and they discover new ways to lead the ubiquitous smart home safely into the future.

“Empathic Technology” sounds like the theme of a sci-fi movie, but Poppy Crum sees it as an opportunity to close cognitive and emotional gaps between people. Because with sensor technology, breath and body warmth, gestures and facial expressions, feelings become readable. At Dolby, Poppy combines this with the technologies of the future. Which leads to her IFA+ Summit topic: The Post-Poker Face Era – Human Perception and Technological Advancement.

In addition to Impulse Speeches and Short Talks divided into four thematic clusters, visitors to the IFA+ Summit can also look forward to top-notch workshops, which show today what will be standard in a few years’ time – and what challenges lie ahead.

Paul Melin, Vice President of Media Technologies at Nokia Tech, will host a session on emerging multimedia experiences and innovations that will revolutionize the way we create and consume the content of tomorrow. Meanwhile, Avast, one of the largest providers of digital security software, will also host a workshop. Garry Kasparov, Avast Security Ambassador and former World Chess Champion, and Ondrej Vlcek, EVP & CTO of Avast, will discuss strengths and weaknesses of Smart Homes and their influence on privacy. Kasparov’s fictional Smart Home is cracked open live by Whitehat hacker Vladislav Iliushin in the workshop.This is followed by a Q&A.
