Highlights of this year

   

From Beautiful Maps to Actionable Insights

Shan He, who is a Senior Data Visualization Engineer at Uber, gives a glance at how her team creates live 3D data visualisation tools for the browser, that also help them understand their users and their business better.

Design in the Era of the Algorithm

What’s next is always the big question. Josh Clark will explore some of the possibilities to use machine-generated content, insight, and interaction as design material in everyday work. The challenges and opportunities of machine learning are plenty; learn to handle this powerful new design material with care and respect.

Creating a movement – How to make sure your ideas don’t die

As Design Tinkerer at Google, Adrian has experienced many times that good design and ideas don’t happen naturally. Adrian will share his recipe for how to transform the fragile idea of one person into a vision and a movement that unites and inspires a whole group to actually make things happen.

Experiment to innovate

Anders, Head of UX at Danish Broadcasting service, will show you how to escape tunnel vision and start focusing on building the right thing. The silver bullet is systematic and constant product testing. Anders will take the boring part out of testing and show you how easy it can be. He will reveal his playbook of cleverly thought out product experiments used by product builders at companies like Spotify, Booking.com, Facebook, Amazon, and Google and recommended by top universities like Havard, MIT, and Stanford.
Besides the talk you can also explore this topic deeper in his workshop on Oct. 18th.

  • Making Research Usable
  • Embracing Friction
