Karen Palmer Biography

Karen Palmer is the Storyteller from the Future, an award-winning international artist, and TED speaker. She creates immersive film experiences that watch you back using Artificial Intelligence and Facial Recognition, which make you conscious of your subconscious behavior. She incorporates neuroscience, behavioral psychology, and the Parkour philosophy of moving through fear throughout her work, and as an international speaker she highlights the impact of technology from a social justice perspective and the necessity to Democratize AI.

Palmer's recent commission by the BFI released in 2022, "Consensus Gentium," is an emotionally responsive film designed to be experienced on a mobile device, tapping into the intimacy and authenticity of smartphone features to create a uniquely realistic experience. Set in a near future of an increased surveillance State and bias AI, "Consensus Gentium" enables you to experience potential surveillance technologies today.

Palmer has been described as a thought leader in the realms of immersive storytelling, futurism, and tech. She has been featured in innumerable interviews and events ranging from The Future of Storytelling Festival NYC to The Big Think. She has been opening Keynote speaker at AT&T Shape Conference, L.A, Wired for Wonder Festival Australia, Sydney & Melbourne, MIT, and TEDx Australia Speaker at the Sydney Opera House.

Palmer has delivered keynotes and workshops to corporate clients and Leadership Summits that includes Microsoft Seattle, Vertex Berlin, ThoughtWorks Toronto, and the Google Cultural Institute in Paris. Her forte is in speaking for corporate clients and envisioning a bespoke future for them aligned with their business model in order to inspire their Leadership teams to start to think outside the box with a new insightful vision to work towards. She has worked closely with prestigious organizations such as the British Councils in Canada, Western Balkans, South Africa, and Peru.

There have been numerous articles on Palmer's work published in Wired Magazine, Forbes, PC Mag, CBS TV, Fast Company, Engadget, and The Guardian who described her work as “It leapfrogs over VR." She has exhibited at The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum NYC, the V&A London, PHI Centre Montreal, Sensory Stories Exhibition, Armoury Arts Week NYC, Museum of Modern Art Peru, and Sheffield International Doc Festival, to name a few.

Palmer's installation "RIOT" has been acknowledged as one of the Digital Dozen Award for breakthroughs in storytelling. "RIOT" is an emotionally responsive film which uses facial recognition and AI technology to navigate though a dangerous riot. "RIOT" makes the player aware of their subconscious behavior and enables them to consciously build new neurological pathways in their brain to override automatic behavior responses and create new ones.

In 2020, Palmer received an Honorary Mention for the STARTS Prize ARS Electronica for "Perception iO," an AI Law enforcement training simulation which will watch you back. "Perception iO" enables participants to experience how easily human bias can be integrated into networks by humans and therefore understand the necessity for transparency and regulation in AI.
