On April 25th 2019, the #mediaX2019 Conference, Digital Communities and the Augmented Human Experience took place in the MacKenzie Room of the Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center at Stanford University. This year, the conference brought together Stanford scholars and industry partners to dive into ideas of what builds community in 2019 and beyond.
Whether physical or virtual, “community” implies both an individual perception and a collective sense of belonging, trust and mutual influence. The sense of a shared experience is fundamental to the human experience. People form and maintain communities to meet special needs, and communities have a significant personal impact on health well-being. They play an increasingly important role in the everyday life and in the platform economy. They have become vital to education, learning and the cultivation of human resources that fuel and sustain innovation.
