San Diego’s MIT Enterprise Forum and The MIT Club present:

Automation:  Helping Humanity or taking away jobs?

An evening with Don Norman, Professor and Director, UCSD Design Lab; MIT Alum

Feb 2015 Don Norman

“Automation is increasing everywhere. In the home, the office, the medical examining room, and in factories.  IBM’s Watson can debate, aid physicians, and make up new recipes for cooks.  My approach is to get rid of the word automation and replace it with the word “teams”; teams of intelligent agents, some people, some groups of people, some machines.”

Mr. Norman will start with a summary of the recent developments in automation, from the automobile to the office, schools, and health systems.  He also plans to present his findings on Human-Technology teamwork and the research they are conducting at the new Design Lab at UC San Diego.

This should be a lively and entertaining evening as Mr. Norman likes to involve the audience in his discussions.   Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear this world-renowned designer and author!

 

Bio:  About Having lived many lives, Mr Norman’s background includes being a Professor of Design, Cognitive Science, Psychology, and Computer Science at UC San Diego, Northwestern, Harvard, KAIST (Korea) and Tongji (Shanghai).
