The industrial revolution happened, and it’s over.
We are living in the midst of a digital transformation of society.
Yet, design practice is stuck in the past. We struggle to reconcile human values and algorithmic logic with sustainable social, economic, and political models. We lack the knowledge, skills, and roles within companies or organizations to design for interaction with autonomous technologies in ways that benefit humankind.
We must responsibly anticipate and steer this transformation. Imagining and manifesting alternative futures has to be a proactive effort.
