Description

For the IxDA Interaction Design Day we will invite international speakers to give presentations to the topic of "Trust and Responsibility" following by an roundtable and discussion with the public. Drinks and snaks are available to spend a great moment together.

Special guest: Thomas Küber:

TALK: TRUSTING INVISIBILITY

Technology is increasingly layered across, and hidden within, every interaction of our lives. More and more is happening behind the scenes: data generation, algorithmic computation, and decision-making. How can we as Designers help to create trust and trustworthy products when most of our products become invisible and intangible. How can we reassure our users and transport values and ethical thinking when our Designs get mainly transported through digital assistants, avatars and algorithms.

The key here is trust. Trust is more important than ever, and companies will need to build and maintain it. We believe trust can be designed. But how?Thomas Kueber

ABOUT THOMAS

Thomas Kueber is obsessed with humanizing technology ever since he has got his hands on his first C64 during the 1980s. Having started his career within HCI research at Fraunhofer institute over 10 years ago, He has worked his way up and down the design industry in Europe, Asia and the United States. Today he lives and works in Berlin, leading Designit’s digital domain in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

During daylight he focuses on helping large-scale organizations embedding successful design strategies that enable not only economic growth but generate genuine value for real people. When the office lights go out he is co-leading Berlin‘s interaction design community IxDA Berlin, occasionally crafts cocktails for my Indian supper club or simply enjoys a dark-brew coffee and bass-heavy music in my tiny backyard-garden.

Special guest: Henning Fritzenwalder

TALK: Responsible Design

We've seen the harm caused by unethical practices in software development, whether it's Google cashing in on pedophiles, Volkswagen cheating on emissions, Teenage suicides connected to social media usage, Twitters indifference towards hate speech or the role of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica in the 2016 US election - digital products and services are entering more and more areas of our life and are massively affecting our brains and social interactions, society, communities and politics.

The more they become ubiquitous and indispensable, the more people get hooked and spent their lives in these services. As Designers, we have to learn about the psychological, social and economic effects of the products we are creating and show responsibility.

But do you feel empowered to do this in your daily jobs? Would we know how to create software in a more responsible way? This talk is looking at ways how Designers can embrace the challenge to build products and services that are truly human centred, and based on shared values.
