You are invited to come experience The Machine to Be Another*!

Join MIT ACT Research Affiliate Daanish Masood and BeAnotherLab, along with practitioners and researchers from the fields of neuroscience, storytelling, virtual reality and peacebuilding as we experience The Machine in an open collaborative workshop to develop new methodologies, technology and applications for building empathy.

You are also invited to make an optional presentation of your own work at the workshop.

*The Machine to Be Another is an interactive system designed as a tool for embodied-immersive storytelling, using interaction protocols from neuroscience research in embodiment with performance and storytelling to give users the illusion of feeling themselves in the body of another person.
