We need volunteers for the night of the show! Free admission for volunteers. We need two people from 5:30-7:30 to help out with registration and wayfinding, 2 people from 7-9:30 to help with speakers and clean up. Email us at

By now, we all know that empathy is the key to designing and delivering products that people love. Join us to hear how designers are going deeper to build trust, cultivate emotion and eliminate bias when designing for VR, machine learning, and conversational UI's.

Trusting the Future

People have evolved to trust their basic instincts for growth and survival, including the need to collaborate and build relationships. But today, innovations in technology are challenging our basic ideas about trust. How do we design products and experiences while building trust with users? How should UX teams evolve to tackle these new challenges?

Feeling Your Finances: Insights on Non-gaming VR Experiences

Although based on cold objective numbers, finances are inherently emotional and deeply personal. At Intuit, we wondered: Could we help people understand the state of their finances without showing numbers? We were excited about virtual reality as a platform, but we didn’t want a 2D ported solution or use 3D technology only for its novelty.

We know VR is great for emotion and scale. We wanted to dive deeper and understand what this means when applied to creating a user experience that isn’t a game. Deep research and experimentation helped us to leverage Immersive Media’s strengths—and allowed us to get to a different solution.

Design in a World Where Machines are Learning

Machine learning gives the products and services we design new capabilities. Designers should get to know machine learning as a new ingredient in their work. Tony will share patterns and frameworks for designing with machine learning.
