In the framework of the Master’s Degree in Web Design and Internet Projects Management, we present the 4th edition of UX Avant, a space for the exhibition, reflection and development of user experience design as a driving force for innovation.
In this new session, several experts on the ethical aspects of technology and design will give their point of view and discuss how our designs, as well as the decisions we make in the projects in which we participate, can deeply affect people’s lives. They will also reflect on the ethical dimension of technology in our lives.
The emphasis will be placed on interactive technologies and artificial intelligence, but the event has the will to go further: the organizers promise that this session will be interesting for all kinds of designers. Conversation and reflection on ethical aspects is too important to be left entirely to philosophers. The designers, artists and engineers have a lot to bring to the table.
