A free, two-part public lecture that addresses emerging technology challenges for design practitioners.
Part 1: A.R. we there yet?
Mixed Reality in Digital Design
Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality (the whole that is greater than the sum of its parts) are increasingly touted as the next big thing in digital design.
The likes of Google, Facebook and Apple are staking out major claims in this new frontier. How will the mixed reality products and platforms they are marketing impact on design businesses?
In this free public lecture, Dr Adam Nash takes a look at the history, the current state, and the possible futures, of mixed reality in design.
Part 2: When are the Robots coming for my design job?
A.I. and Automation in Digital Design
Current media speculation is predicting the wholesale loss of jobs to automation and artificial intelligence. These forecasts often cite the creative industries as safe havens from the looming employment crisis, but is that really the case?
Expert systems that employ artificial intelligence, machine learning and creative automation have the potential to disrupt traditional design roles.
In the second part of this free public lecture, Dr Murray McKeich provides an overview of how these developments are figuring in the future of design industries, and how practitioners can best navigate its opportunities and challenges.
