Augmented Thinking: Designing the Future

  • ATLAS Workbase 500 Mercer Street Seattle, WA, 98109 United States (map)

The design discipline as a whole finds itself at a convergence point. Emerging technology is creating crossovers between disparate fields, blending together technology and society in innumerable configurations. As the products we work on become more complex, our roles and responsibilities as designers are shifting, too.

This panel brings together Seattle-based designers, researchers, and practitioners of augmented and mixed reality as we look to the future. Join us as we explore the challenges of perception and embodiment, artificial intelligence, inclusion, and ethical design practices in this ever-changing discipline.
