We are Geneva's largest grassroots event series at the intersection of Technology, Business, and User-Centered Design. We believe digital strategy and user experience design are closely related. Both are a user-centered, task-driven planning of pathways. Whether it's done for a website, an app or for all digital properties of a company, is just a question of scale. This meetup is the place for all of us to come together, and learn from speakers and each other.
Photos of cats. of people. Of landscapes. The web is full of them. But how to use them in the right way? Not as simple as you'd think. Our 2 speakers will tell us what's broken today around pictures, and how to make it better. It will be a good balance between practical and technical aspects.

Using AI to Power Your Images
Optimizing image content for every browser and device size can be difficult. Random cropping of images can lead to losing context and features, like chopping off a head. This talk will show how AI can be used to identify the important content in each images, allowing for smart cropping, and speeding up page load times.
Olivier Hamel is co-founder of Prodibi.com, a Geneva-based startup. Prodibi's mission is to help photographers, enterprises and agencies display and share stunning images on the web and mobile.
Oliver will talk about how to display any image of any size on any device with the best quality and performance with a simple image viewer. He plans to do a live demo of the Prodibi embed feature for both image and album, as well as the Prodibi WordPress plugin.
This even is co-hosted with "Genève School of AI" meetup. We all hope to see you there!
