Weighing the Impact of Great Design

Great design is everywhere. In a world that’s gone digital its impact is vast. The types of systems and designs we create are no longer only for a small group of early adopters, but have changed the way we live our lives. Our creations have begun to shift and define societal norms so isn’t it time we ask ourselves whether we like this digital world that we’ve helped to create? If we aren’t satisfied with the implications we should be talking about what we can do to effect or alter its course. In this session our speaker Lis Hubert will discuss the impact of our design work in today’s digital world and foster discussion. Attendees should look to leave with a new awareness, opinions and ideas on how to change the future.

    Here's that article we were talking about after the presentation about how the brain doesn't actually process things the same way as a computer.

    https://aeon.co/essays/your-brain-does-not-process-information-and-it-is-not-a-computer

    Personally, I find this hard to wrap my head around (no pun intended). Though what it says is we see the model of the brain the same way as whatever popular technology comes out of our era, like "thoughts as mechanical motions" in the 1600's. I'd like to know more, as I always find how the brain works to be fascinating.
