Design Matters is a global community of digital creatives who love to explore and inspire each other to break new ground in digital design
The world we live in is increasingly shaped by data sets, algorithms, and pre-trained models. We’re seeing how AI technologies are becoming more sophisticated and could be used to automate a plethora of design tasks or create more personalized design experiences. AI & ML are entering every industry and area of life, giving birth to several new practices at the intersection of AI and design. We will look at the design of AI itself, how to design with AI and for AI, at some ethical considerations in relation to these new emerging technologies, and at what designers need to know to stay relevant and competitive in the changing landscape.
When we think about inclusion, we must first recognize that the world we live in is incredibly diverse and varied. We humans are part of a larger ecosystem called planet Earth, but our society can also be considered an ecosystem full of diversity and variety. Diversity and inclusion are ultimately the real grounds for creativity, which must remain at the center of what we designers do. So how can we make the voices of non-human stakeholders be heard? How can we make inclusion part of the design process and not just part of the testing phase of a product? How do we democratize digital products to guarantee wider accessibility? How can we challenge the systems that have led us to where we are? How do we design inclusive teams? And what kind of society will we design after Capitalism?
The conference will take place at Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, Design, and Conservation. The academy focuses on fostering creativity, sustainability, and innovation in the fields of architecture and design. Address: Philip de Langes Allé 10, 1435 Copenhagen K
Design Matters is an ally for diversity, equity, and inclusion, involving designers regardless of ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender or disability
