    Autodesk Design Night #3 As designers, communication is at the heart of what we do - we strive to make products and services that are intuitive, understandable and expressive. Simultaneously, we are also part of a team, an organization, or a community. This is why effective communication with developers, clients, product managers and our fellow designers is key to our success. On our upcoming Autodesk Design Night, Maria Giudice (Autodesk), Ziv Kitaro and Shira Weinberg (Microsoft) will share their thoughts on designing for effective communication, on design leadership, and on collaboration across disciplines, teams, and even continents. Ziv Kitaro A product manager and Game Designer. Worked in the mobile and games arena for the past 10 years, holding both executive and creative titles. Among other projects, Ziv managed studios in Plarium, Global, Playtika, and worked with companies like 888 Holdings, MTV India, Men of Action and others. Shira Weinberg - Product Manager, Microsoft Shira is a product manager at heart with deep knowledge of software development and 14 years’ experience in the software industry. She’s led products both in local startup-like teams and wide corporate environment, including on{X} and Cortana. She’s a people person, loves challenges and passionate about UX, entrepreneurship and social products. Shira is very active in promoting women in the tech field, as the co-founder of LeadWith and as a member of various other teams, including the core team of XX+UX. Maria Giudice - VP Experience Design, Autodesk Innovator, artist, protagonist, and positive provocateur, Maria has pursued a vision of intelligent, elegant, people-centered design throughout her professional life. Under Maria’s leadership, Hot Studio, the experience design firm she founded in 1997, grew into a full-service creative agency with an impressive list of Fortune 500 clients and was nominated for a National Design Award in 2013.

(Lecture is in English) Shira Weinberg - Who's the Bot? The rise of instant messages as the preferred communications platform by consumers, made many companies shift their customer-facing services from applications to chat bots. Join us for a deep dive into the bot revolution and learn what leading companies are doing in this field and why are they shifting their customer-facing services from applications to chat bots. We will also review scenarios combining chat bots and AI by looking at Microsoft’s Cortana in Skype as an example. (Lecture is in Hebrew) Maria Giudice - Remaking the Making Company Not that long ago new technologies were magical, and we were so happy when they just worked. But today we expect more, and assume, demand even, that digital experiences don’t just work really well but are simple, intuitive and fun to use too. This means companies need to stop thinking purely about technology, and think about a holistic experience for their customers. (Lecture is in English) See you there!
