Professor Ruth Morgan, Director of UCL’s Centre for the Forensic Sciences and World Economic Forum Young Scientist, has been appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Virtual and Augmented Reality. In a global environment marked by short-term and siloed thinking, the Global Future Councils foster interdisciplinary and long-range approaches. They provide thought leadership on key worldwide challenges, and the impact and governance of emerging technologies. The Global Future Council on Virtual and Augmented Reality brings together experts from a broad range of disciplines, and aims to explore and raise awareness of the benefits and the risks of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) technologies’ widespread adoption in daily life.
The Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils 2019 is taking place in Dubai in November 2019. Prof Morgan said, “I’m really looking forward to contributing to the Council, and to grappling with complex issues with a diverse group who bring different perspectives and areas of expertise to one of the greatest challenges we are facing as enter the 4th Industrial Revolution”.
