Data-driven design is about digitalization and automation of design research. This approach opens unforeseen opportunities for experience, service, and UX design. In future, it will increasingly involve automated decision making and generative design – combining agentive and assistive design.
Data-Driven Design Day is an annual forum to share insights and experience about emerging ways to use data in all fields of design and design leadership organized in Helsinki, Finland.
The curated, invitational one-day program consists of selected topics that bring together leading experts of the domain. The event is organized on a non-profit ideology, with a nominal entrance fee to commit attendees and cover organizing costs.
