Presentation: Panel – Integrated Technology
How much does technology determine your day to day? Through this panel, "Integrated Technology," we'll look into how designers are integrating technology into our daily lives, at two scales. Along with Google UX Manager, Ricardo Prada, Becky Stern will talk about the individual/personal aspects of putting tech on and around your body including identity, expression & fashion, enhancing our natural abilities/senses, privacy and technological literacy/engineering education. Ricardo will bring to the table his broader, community/society experience working on things like self-driving cars. This is sure to be a lively discussion!
