“Judge a book by its cover” – According to Yael, this characterizes the evolution of the human mind and the way we think.

Yael, born in Raanana, Israel, later spent parts of her life in Toronto, Canada. She has a First Degree in Psychology, Masters Degree in Organizational Consulting and throughout the past two years, Yael has specialized in the field of Psychology of Technology.  Yael’s focuses her research mainly on the physiological and cognitive repercussions after long exposures to internet and smartphone use.

The content of her research is based around several bold questions; will the average attention span of a person in the near future exceed one minute, what are the effects of using the google search bar for our every question, what consequences or perhaps advantages can come from this? And lastly, which sectors of our memory are being deleted and how will this reality affect us.

Yael shares her knowledge with the audience in a very simply, everyday vocabulary in hopes to reach as many people as she can, and to shake awareness on how technology is affecting us and how to consume it in the smartest way.

Yael explains that once people are being exposed to the knowledge both theoretically and scientifically, they are more self-aware of the repercussions and how to use the technology to their advantage.  This later assists us to improve our focus and efficiency in our daily activities.

Yael also combines the ‘art of attention’ technique which is based on cognitive and physiological research.  This allows persons to grasp others attention, in a world where attention holding is nearly impossible to do.
