Alice Wroe interview: Augmented and Virtual Realities Lead at The Atlantic Institute

February 10, 2021

Our guest this episode is Alice Wroe, the Augmented and Virtual Realities Lead at the Atlantic Institute in Oxford England. The Atlantic Institute connects the seven Atlantic Fellows programs, building a global community of courageous leaders who address systemic causes of inequity.

Alice is also the founder of Herstory, a project using art and culture to engage people with women’s history. She has worked at the intersection of art, technology and social justice for leading institutions including Magic Leap, U2, and The Gates Foundation.

We discuss being an accidental technologist, the experience of meeting a Digital Human for the first time, how AR and VR could be used to elevate our humanity, and the role artists play in preventing technology from becoming boring and dangerous.
