“At the intersection of design and business lie a host of technologies that enable efficiency and innovation at every turn. We design for devices that are mobile, engage in conversations that are virtual, and increasingly groom ourselves to embrace realities that are alternative, even artificial, as we do so. But at what cost—to each of us?
For two days next fall, join us at MIT as we explore design, technology, and culture, and most of all, the humanist values that govern how we live, work, and thrive together.
We’ll look at human responsibility—not corporate responsibility—as a foundation for honesty, integrity, and truth. We’ll discuss ethics, bias, and the importance of consequence. And we’ll examine technology as our common language: how it can be better, and how we can be better, too.
“The world of reality has its limits”, Rousseau once wrote. “But the world of the imagination is boundless”. We agree—and hope you’ll join us!” ”
