At the time of writing this, I am in the process of completing my presentation materials for Design Thinking 2021 where I will be discussing Human Centered Artificial Intelligence (HC AI) driven by Quality eXperiences by Design (QXbD). Here is the link to the abstract for that session, which has been scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday, September 21. Admittedly, this is bitter sweet since I will be missing Nokia‘s Algorithm World, which takes place that same day at the Nokia Chicago Innovation Center, my home base.
I am very glad to share that Nokia is this year’s twice finalist for awards in the areas of Digital Transformation and Design Leadership. This post shares last night’s news on the later. Given the caliber of the participants, this is a humbling experience which credits the thoughtfulness, ingenuity and passion of the interdisciplinary cohorts involved at the Venture Design Studio (VDS) and the opportunity to work with customers, partners and peers, who happen to be among the best in industry in today’s changing environment.
At a personal level, I am not only grateful for everyone’s consideration, but also for the opportunity to continue to actively contribute to our shared interest in the Design & Innovation community around devising sound technological solutions that put people first. On our team’s behalf, I would like to also convey the very best to Tata Consultancy Services and to Chrysalis who are also finalists for this year’s Design Champion Award. Looking forward to seeing you and continuing the discussion onsite and online as needed.
