March / Design Shift — Melbourne

DESIGN SHIFT: TECH VS HUMANS
6:30pm 17 March
Presented by AGDA
NGV Melbourne Design Week

With 2020 already upon us – what did you predict this new decade would bring? Did we foresee that humans would become so co-dependant on technology? 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?

ADGA Design Shift presents a collection of five unique perspectives, 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 to consider and explore the contributions of human-centric design for what might shape a better future.

Join us at Melbourne Design Week in uncovering some of the challenges and opportunities we as designers face today and can do for tomorrow.

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV. Click here to check out other events at Melbourne Design Week.
