25 October 2023 @Kazerne - 19:30


During this special DDW event we welcome Dries Depoorter (BE)L☻dy Aeckerlin and Patrik Hübner (DE) on stage. They will delve into a topic at the intersection of design and digital technology. This time with a bold statement: Tech is Taking Over. The development of AI is happening rapidly. And although we now know that AI will not take over our jobs for the time being, there is plenty to discuss about the impact of new technology on, among other things, the design profession.

The three top speakers will take us through the development of technology and its impact on the design profession. How will tech and people work together? And are there developments that we should be concerned about?

Will we see you on Wednesday, October 25?
