Design Shift Tech Vs Humans Part 3

1pm every Tuesday in June

Well, nothing could have prepared us for the recent events of 2020, not only from major disruptions in our lives due to the pandemic but also the need to adopt technological innovation at a much faster pace than ever before. At the rising age of data science, digital platforms, automation, artificial intelligence, cyborgs and smart technology — are we losing touch with what it means to be human?

AGDA now brings Design Shift: Tech vs. Humans online — a weekly five part live webinar series with our presenter, San San Truong. We have prepared a line up of speakers with a view to learn what communication and technology companies, designers and thought leaders are practicing today to acknowledge humanity in the face of rapid technological change. Plug into their minds as we touch on some key issues each week to consider and explore their contributions of human-centric design for what might shape a better future.

Let’s not forget the art of design in the final frontier of our webinar series. Since the beginning of civilisation, we have used our artistic and creative abilities to ideate solutions, to make technologies that enrich our lives. Whether it is visual branding and communication, product, interaction, motion, sound, or fully immersive experiences, the magic of the creative process continues to keep us in awe and links strongly to the human, emotive part of our psyche, connecting us all on some deeper level. What role does art and creativity play in human-centric design and how does it shape our future?

We are excited to have Gustavo Vampre onboard as our last guest speaker on the Design Shift: Tech vs. Humans journey. Gustavo is curious about how we remain relevant with the recent explosion of technological advancements such as machine learning and AI. He believes underlying purpose and principles of design remained the same, even though technology has changed immensely. He looks at an example of how to use design to touch us emotionally and lead with meaningful interactions. This empowers us to make the world a better place through three key points: originality, craft and human-centric design.
