- Worthing Digital talks: Using Data as a Creative Material with Mike Brondbjerg
Your data, with it’s stories and characteristics, contains the features, textures, peaks & troughs of your endeavours and is bound uniquely to you. Using this data as the seed in your creative process, allows you to produce data art, design & visualisation, that has the uniqueness & serendipity of your endeavours embedded within it. Mike will look at how data, in one form or another, connects all of his projects and how he’s used it in very different ways. Mike Brondbjerg is a partner at Kultur Design, a creative studio specialising in projects ranging from analytical information design & data visualisations through to data illustration and generative design. Mike is currently working on data visualisation projects within the Intelligence Unit of London’s City Hall for the GLA / Mayor of London.

- I for one welcome our new robot overlords - Andy Budd

During this journey we touch on issues of technology, morality and the socio-economic effects of a world dominated by robots. As a UX design and service designer, I look at how robots will be increasingly used to deliver service experiences, and what us designers need to do in order to create the perfect human-robot interaction.
