This week we talk with Kara Platoni from UC Berkeley
We chat with Kara Platoni, research journalist and teacher at UC Berkeley, about her book We Have the Technology. We discuss virtual reality in the context of biohacking as well as how it is being used as therapy, specifically with PTSD and Alzheimer’s. Kara takes us through her experiences with research and academic facilities that are focusing on helping humanity via the therapeutic uses of mixed reality technology
