The human spirit is capable of leaving the body today. What’s more, it can visit other places at light speed! Take it from Roey Tzezana, he talks with people all over the world as a robot. People of all nationalities can come, meet and engage in discourse regardless of the national borders enforced on them by governments.
Roey Tzezana, PhD, is a research fellow in the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center and manages the program for Futures Studies at Lahav Executive Education in Recanati Business School at Tel Aviv University.
His first book, Guide to the Future, focused public attention on the disruptive influence of emerging technologies on society. Tzezana has founded and is the director of The Simpolitix Project for political forecasting, and is ‘living the future’ as co-founder of TeleBuddy: a start-up company helping people connect via telepresence robots everywhere in the world.
