I helped organize the World Interaction Design Day 2019 celebrations at IBM, Bangalore. As one of the local leader for IxDA, I was involved in speaker curation & logistics for the event.
We had two talks & one workshop exploring Trust & Responsibility from the lens of Interaction Design:
- Vinay Kesari spoke on Data Protection Law in India.
- Sundhindra V. spoke on his journey with IxDA as a mentor, local leader & regional coordinator.
- Aparna Ashok ran an engaging workshop on AI Ethics, with teams reflecting on their daily usage of popular apps.
I had a great time curating the sessions, and helping Aparna with the workshop facilitation. We did some fun experiments, like mapping participants across hopeful vs worried & informed vs unaware about our AI powered future.
