Dr. Ge Wang
Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime!
How might the shaping of technology make our lives richer and more meaningful? What does it mean to design well — to design ethically? This presentation is a meditation on the design of everyday tools, musical instruments, games, and social experiences. It is a story of how we shape technology -- and how technology, in turn, shapes us and our future.
