Theme & Tracks

Being Human by Design

As the boundaries between humans and machines blur with the emergent tech, we are up for an exciting ride where the technology when designed responsibly could work beautifully. As demonstrated at recent Google I/O, assistive tech can seamlessly blend into our lives and offer great human experiences. On the flip side in a different example, Youtube autoplaying the next video within seconds backed by deep learning is eating into our sleep. This race for capturing the attention isn’t best for our well being. Going beyond UX/UI, the role of design becomes paramount than ever in designing experiences for humans that reflect sense of responsibility and that instills trust and confidence in the emerging tech. Even if the boundaries are blurring, should there be a line drawn to differentiate machines with humans? What does it take to design experiences that bring the very essence of human to our interactions with tech?

Submission tracks

We encourage speakers to orient their presentations or connect to the theme ‘Being Human by Design’. Your opinions and perspectives will help inform and influence the role of design in emergent tech as we evolve.


We are inviting different types of talks to accommodate varied insights, learnings and research. From 18 minutes TED like talks to 30 minutes case studies. We will also have (3h) and long (6h) hands on workshops.
