About speaker

Hi, I'm Brie and I'd like to change the way we relate to technology. At my Toronto-based studio TRU LUV, we work with artists, psychologists, game designers and AI programmers to bring life to AI companions. Our companions are not personal assistants, apps, or games, but something more like friends who help you relax and grow more insightful. Our proof of concept, a companion called #SelfCare, was named one of Apple's Best of 2018 Trend of the Year selections.

I was formerly a lead programmer at Ubisoft on three Assassin's Creed projects and have been a sought-after speaker and interaction design consultant worldwide.

About the talk

Everything is connected or soon will be. I already live in my phone more than I live in the physical world. As everything becomes an interface, what do we want to interface with?

While many apps leave me feeling overwhelmed or manipulated, not all forms of screen time are bad for our mental health. In this talk, I’ll discuss what psychological frameworks such as tend-and-befriend and social baseline theory imply about interaction design and why I’m interested in reimagining nearly every app as a companion: a friend who shares your values and helps you achieve your goals as you help them achieve theirs.
