The future of influence in the broadcast industry is deeply rooted in its storied past. From the town crier to the printing press to the early radio and TV broadcasts: the influence of information delivered by all variety of technologies is strongly dependent on how the citizens—these biological, physical, social human beings—experience it. In this panel, we explore the varied intersections of the human (physical, psychological, biological) and the technological. Can AI create digital humans so realistic that humans accept them as influencers? Can influence be quantified in the science of biomarkers? How will the next generation of technologies interacting with human senses as integral as sight and touch change the metrics of influence? As we look into the future, we take a moment of deep reflection that humans are deeply rooted in their own storied past, defined substantially by evolutionary biology.
