How to Speak Machine

 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

From data bias, to political meddling and self-learning algorithms – machines are more powerful than ever in today’s society. But so few of us understand how these systems work. A leading thinker on the crossover between design, technology and business, reveals how essential it is that we educate ourselves about the laws of our digital age, and how to do just that.

John Maeda (@johnmaeda) is the Head of Computational Design and Inclusion at Automattic. An engineer, computer scientist and designer by training, Maeda is also the former president of the Rhode Island School of Design and was a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the venture capitalist firm. His Ted talks on design are hugely popular, and he is the author of the books The Laws of Simplicity and Redesigning Leadership. His new book is How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Computational Age.

The Department of Management (@LSEManagement) is a world class centre for education and research in business and management. At the heart of LSE’s academic community in central London, we are ranked #2 in the world for business and management studies.
