The Futures We Want: Architecting Reality

Kaleem Khan

45 min. talk
We are in the midst of fundamental systemic changes to our society, culture, and civilisation. The signals are all around us: Algorithms, artificial intelligence, data, sensors, autonomous robots, and ubiquitous, immersive computing

We are in the midst of fundamental systemic changes to our society, culture, and civilization.

The signals are all around us: Algorithms, artificial intelligence, data, sensors, autonomous robots, and ubiquitous, immersive computing.

These rapidly advancing fields are already woven into the fabric of our daily lives, from how we work, live, and play, to government systems, and the administration of justice. The challenges they pose to information architects and systems designers present new opportunities, risks and dangers.

Drawing upon the wisdom and warnings of Buckminster Fuller, Victor Papanek, Neil Postman, Mark Weiser, Marshall McLuhan, Al Jazari the Father of Robotics, and others, this session encourages and provokes us to question our fundamental approach to our work.

We will reflect upon the ideas, values and ethics that underpin the systems that we design, and the real and potential impact of our work as we forge our paths into new domains.

We face a choice: Will the future happen to us or will we create the futures we want?

Escaping the Echo Chamber: The User Experience of Data-driven Personalisation
Mathias Wrba
Personalisation can be an explicit element of an interaction where a user sets preferences or adjusts parameters to his liking, but in recent times a new trend of implicitly personalised experiences has emerged. This opens up possibilities to find relevant content and functionality faster and with more ease, but at the same time there is a risk involved concerning the transparency of the experience.
