The Futures We Want
Who decides our future?
We are in the midst of fundamental systemic changes to our society, culture, and civilization. The signals are all around us: Data, sensors, networks, robots, and ubiquitous connectivity.
These changes present designers with new opportunities, risks and dangers.
In this session, Kaleem Khan encourages us to question our fundamental approach to our work. We will examine moving beyond methods, function and form to the ideas, values and ethics that underpin what we design.
We face a choice: Will the future happen to us or will we create the futures we want?
