General Description

Episode 44 | October 3, 2018

Asta Roseway has a formal title. It’s Principal Research Designer in the HCI group at Microsoft Research. But she’s also been described as a conductor, an alchemist, a millennial in a Gen-Xer’s body and, in her own words, a fusionist. What’s a fusionist, you might ask? Well, you’re about to find out.

On today’s podcast, Asta gives an inside look at one of the most unconventional labs at Microsoft Research. Located at the intersection of science, technology and art, it’s a lab that insists that technology, like art, should push boundaries, tell stories and feed our souls. Get ready for the unexpected because when Asta asks “what if?” you’re likely to find yourself immersed in a world of responsive clothing, smart tattoos, talking plants and even environmentally sensitive… makeup!
