Internet of Things 2

This lecture series aims to explore how we design products and services for “internet of things”.

The second series of lectures on the topic of Internet of Things aim to explore further how we design products and services for an evermore connected reality. This time we have invited designers, experts and researchers that are either creating new innovative products or investigating interesting phenomena around the topic.

We intend to try to ask hard questions that surround this complex field of technology, networks, protocols and frameworks to enable designers and innovators to create new exciting products.

During the lectures we will dive into how experts work with the smart energy sector and and we will be shown learnings from a designer who creates new connected products. We will take an in-depth look into how materiality as a concept can be used to conceptualize invisible phenomena of connectedness. To make things more manageable we intend to investigate how bottom up/social innovation can create change in urban infrastructure and lastly we will discuss how designers might intervene in development of infrastructures in order for us as designers to impact the future.

The lectures are open to everyone. Please fill out a registration form HERE.
