The conference brought together researchers across disciplines—including psychology, marketing, organizational behavior, economics, and computer science—who are studying how technology is changing the human experience. The event featured a poster session where 20 post-docs and junior faculty from diverse institutions presented their work on topics related to the uses and biases in interactions with smart devices, AI, voice-assisted tech, and information transmission across social media networks.
