The Responsibility of Design
Design impacts people’s lives. That impact can be positive or negative – and we are responsible for both. Today, as technology scales the planet and people’s experiences are tied up in an increasingly digital transformation, the role of “design” has come front and center. Everything is designed. Every screen, every interaction, every innovation has the potential to affect and alter human behavior. Every decision from the miniscule to the systematic has repercussions, many of which we’re only now coming to terms. How did we get here, and how do we be more responsible in the future? Join Albert Shum, CVP of Design at Microsoft, for a discussion on the unique power of design to ask why, to be thoughtful, and to build more responsible technology on behalf of humanity.
