World Happiness Agora - Transformative Technologies
Join us on March 22nd, 2019 at the World Happiness Agora to discuss transformative technologies and how it can be applied to mental health problems and the future requirement for social-emotional skills at work.
On the 5th day of the Agora, we will invite worldwide founders and entrepreneurs working on Transformative Technology to join in the discussion and share their progress. We are partnering with the Transformative Technology Academy (TTA) and focus on building the future of human possibility by leveraging tech for mental health, well-being, and joy.
The TTA is a one-month online program to support entrepreneurs and innovators using TransTech to expand human possibility. At the academy, entrepreneurs will be immersed in the latest studies and technologies. They will be surrounded by a community of like-minded entrepreneurs where they can thrive and a build a network. The academy promotes interaction between industry leaders who are passionate about supporting human possibility through Transformative Tech.
What is Transformative Technology?
Transformative Technology or TransTech is the use of exponential technology to help humans by supporting mental health, well-being, and joy. It aims to help people reduce stress, anxiety, and depression by developing resilience, and social skills. Its goal is to expand mental and emotional intelligence to help humans experience a deeper connection, transformation, emotional wellness and a sense of happiness.
Therefore, if you are an engineer, behavioral scientist, or neuroscientist with a tech product that aims to do all that and help people self-regulate their emotions and deepen self-awareness, your product fits the criteria of Transformative Tech.
From breathing apps to meditation apps to stress wearables, many of us have encountered TransTech before without realizing that’s what it’s called. Other examples of Transformative Tech include sensor tech wearables, AI, neurotech, and perception techs such as VR and AR. The tech that monitors and improves sleep and social apps that will enhance behavior are also Transformative technologies.
If you are using exponential tech in the following ways, you are creating Transformative Tech:
● AI & Robotics
● AR & VR
● Biotechnology & Bioinformatics
● Energy & Environmental Systems
● Medicine and Neuroscience
● Nanotechnology & Digital Fabrication
● Networks & Computing Systems
The conversation on Transformative Tech is a vital one to have because the technologies have the power to shape human psychology and elevate the quality of the human mind. TransTech aims to unlock optimized levels of mental health and emotional skills to promote human flourishing.
We need to design tech that puts humanity in the center, allowing us to amplify the characteristics that we want to enhance. Through TransTech and exponential tech, we have the opportunity to diagnose and expand our capacity to create abundance and improve mental and emotional health and well-being.
Don’t miss the discussion on the 5th day of the World Happiness Agora as we immerse ourselves in #TransformativeTechnologies to solve the challenging demands of elevating the quality of the human mind.
