The Future of Tech Workplace, Designing for Experience
Technology is quickly becoming an all-encompassing utility that’s core to the operation of all businesses today and into the future. As designers for these new worlds and new places of work, we have to keep abreast of the changes and we need to embrace the idea of continuous change. We need to embrace the disruption, the differences and the unique generations growing up on a technology foundation.
Now there is a strong focus on understanding the implications of AI, Big Data and Machine Learning. The future workplace will be about creating environments where technology works for us, and not against us. In the future, experience will be a blend of tech awareness and human perception. We are living in a time where we need to solve for human experience and the hyper-connected worlds of technology. We will be having Doug Wittnebel as our speaker for this evening. We will have snacks and beverages. This event is free – but you must register!
