for Emerging Technologies
A new conference for …
Emerging technologies like AI, BigData and Machine Learning or Blockchain will rapidly change the way products are designed. On top of that, the Internet of Things (IoT) and new interface technologies like AR, VR and Conversational UI will offer an exponentially wider landscape for Experience Design.
Let this conference help you explore the white patches on the new landscape of Experience Design. This is your chance to be part of a newly developing community of practice right from the start.
This is what you can expect
- Two-day conference in the heart of Berlin
- limited to 200 guests
- mid- to senior-level and above Experience Designers, Project Managers and Product Managers
Talks, sessions and workshops on:
- AI, BigData and Machine Learning
- Blockchain and IoT
- New Interfaces like AR, VR, Conversational UI
On Day One eight experts will give short Lightning Talks and offer additional deep-dive-sessions (60 – 90min.) for smaller groups on the topic of their Lightning Talks. This offers the chance to discuss, reflect and learn more intensively.
Day Two will be a mix of preselected talks as proven unconference elements. We will give everyone an opportunity to hold a workshop, discussion or present tools, methods or anything.
Business is already on track and has set aside budget to implement AI in core business processes, funding projects to build tools and products based on Machine Learning, Big Data or using the Blockchain and Smart Contracts.
These tools and products will have to face real users rather sooner than later. And we as User Experience designers, project and product managers will be tasked with implementing them.
In order to succeed with this, we need a solid grasp how these technologies work, what they are capable of and what not. We will need to research on how real users interact with these systems. We will need to experiment to push the borders of what is thinkable and possible.
But above all we will need to share our experiences in order to learn from each other.
