This version of the Codes and Modes Symposium aims to create an intervention into the uncritical excitement about virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and machine learning to establish a space for conversations about long-term socio-cultural and neurobiological impacts.

Featured speakers include Lev Manovich (CUNY Graduate Center), Mandy Rose (Co-Director of i-Docs), Daanish Masood (BeAnotherLab), and Lina Srvistava (Fouder of Cultural Innovation for Social Impact) and Dan Archer (Empathetic Media).
