UXINDIA 2019 continues to explore the theme “Human by Design

With the evolution of tech and business, the influence of design has evolved too. We have come a long way from designing product interfaces for feedback and response, to creating user and customer experiences. Going beyond UX/UI, the role of design becomes paramount than ever in designing experiences for humans that reflect a sense of responsibility and that instill trust and confidence in the emerging tech.

Tech is now ready to tackle the mundane and will eventually be able to handle the sophisticated too thereby enhancing our abilities to take up more challenging and ambitious tasks of tomorrow. So should our design be human-friendly or tech-friendly? What does it take to design experiences that bring the very essence of human to our interactions with tech? How do we design for such a transition?
