art + tech + design = happiness

About the event:

 

Why should we adapt to technology when we can make technology adapt to us? Hector Ouilhet, Head of Design for Google Search will explore how technology came to dominate the human needs it serves and why, in the age of AI, deep learning and super connectivity, it's time to reverse that trend.

 

Hector will lead a Q&A session at Spark Lab exploring the tensions between technology, art, and design. And how can we best harness those tensions - to create products and experiences that make our lives more productive,
enjoyable, and inspiring.
