Telelife, the future of remote living . In 2022, we have access to advanced technologies and tools (e.g., the upper part of the hourglass). Yet, we are still locked in front of a stationary display and operating remotely in an unnatural and often exhausting way. Telelife provides a vision of the future that looks towards 2035, where a majority of our remotely performed interactions and daily routines will be supported with emerging technologies that are aligned with human nature. Telelife integrates learning, exploration, interaction, problem solving, and even gaming into a virtual ecosystem in which users will have experiences that are closely integrated into their lifestyles. To achieve this future, we must overcome technical challenges such as the form factor, interoperability, data collection, and transmission and address issues related to ethics, privacy and security, accessibility and adoption, and collaborating that we call out rigorous debates and discussion amongst world’s leading experts through this panel.
