UnBox returns to Bangalore on November 18th with a day-long, multi-format event that will bring together key experts from the UnBox network to host workshops and panel discussions, while students from Design Academy Eindhoven will also present projects that they are working on.
The world of the future seems to be a smart, fast, connected digital world and it is easy to get seduced by the potential it promises. There is a lot of hype around data-driven futures that will make everything, including our relationships with each other and the places that we live in, smarter and more efficient. However it is also important to focus on our shared humanity and the diversity of our complex lived experiences in our conversations about the future.
How can we find expression and meaning in a world shaped by technology, data, and algorithms? How can we think of technology that can manifest our shared culture and values that are also unique to place and context? How can we be educated participants in our own future?
This edition of UnBox seeks to start conversations about the role of technology in our society, and about how we want to navigate being human in a digital world.
