This year's theme is trust and responsibility. Design operates at the intersection of the humanities and technology. Humanity entrusts the work of designers in order to function in modern society. With increasing reliance on their work, is an increasing, and ethical, responsibility for designers to put their user’s needs first.
Emerging technologies like AR, VR, Voice, and AI only further complicate matters of trust in design, as we tap deeper into fundamental issues of communication and human relationships.
This year’s theme challenges the interaction design community to explore their impact on trust and responsibility in their work, workplace, communities, and beyond.
