Get ready for UX with a side of empathy, compassion and a lot of awkward dating stories from experienced UX designer Sherin Wafaai. After 8 years deep in the realm of Psychology, Sherin made a smooth career shift into User Experience design. Her Doctorate in User-System Interaction from TU/e allowed her to use her knowledge of the human mind to make people happy therefore extending her impact on humanity. She now uses those skills to teach people empathy through design. Her passion is people. Her hobby is people and her work is people. She is the co-founder of SkaleUp Ventures & Vested Summit and now leads the center of empathy for the Ministry of Communications and IT for the Arab Republic of Egypt. In this short workshop you will learn: * How your users are like potential partners. * Different stages of dating and how they relate to your user journey. * How to keep your users satisfied (wink wink) * Nir Eyal's Hooked Model (a discussion) * Should you pop the question? * How to lose your users (i.e. divorce) * How to use behavioral psychology when designing but still stay ethical. * The art of emotion (empathy, compassion, and vulnerability) * The responsibility we have as designers #conscioustech You will also learn: UX designers are actually relationship gurus :) Sounds good?

  • Future Ethics – with Cennydd Bowles


    Technology was never neutral; its social, political, and moral impacts have become painfully clear. But the stakes will only get higher as connected cameras will watch over the city, algorithms oversee society’s most critical decisions, and transport, jobs, and even war will become automated. The tech industry hasn’t yet earned the trust these technologies demand. Drawing on years of research for his new book Future Ethics, designer Cennydd Bowles will illuminate the moral challenges that lie ahead for technologists, and discuss how practitioners and companies can create more thoughtful, ethical products for future generations. About Cennydd Cennydd Bowles is a London-based designer and writer with fifteen years of experience advising clients including Twitter, Ford, Cisco, and the BBC. His focus today is the ethics of emerging technology. He has lectured on the topic at Facebook, Stanford University, and Google, and is a sought-after speaker at technology and design events worldwide. His second book, Future Ethics, was published in 2018. Doors open: 17:30 Event starts: 18:00
