Presentation

Slides

Overview

The reports are in: how we relate to technology directly affects how we relate to other humans, to our environments, and to ourselves. Are we headed for a technological dystopia, where robots are in charge and empathy is just a word for the history books? Not necessarily! Learn how the interfaces we interact with can teach us how to be better communicators, increase our understanding of each other, and how product design might be the key to building a positive future for all.

Objective

Directly address fear and skepticism about technology, inspiring all who design and build tech to think more empathetically when building UX and UI.

Target Audience

Product designers, HR specialists, and anyone skeptical about technology

Three Things Audience Members Will Learn

  1. How to create user interfaces that are flexible enough to include everyone, even if they can’t keep up with all the different identities and new labels that people are using
  2. What is conversation design, and how it has the power to teach people how to communicate
  3. How AI has the potential to be more inclusive than previous data analysis systems, if we leverage its weaknesses to the human advantage
