The Future of UI


18:30 - 21:30

Facebook,10 Brock Street, London, NW1 3FG

We may not have jetpacks, but many technology interactions promised by science fiction are no longer gimmicks. Evolved technology has increased demand and possibility for relevant, contextual, and intuitive experiences.

Come hear how companies are designing and using virtual reality, audio, artificial intelligence for new experiences, and how we can research and design, even when these disruptive technologies are not in widespread use, without compromising the high expectations of our audience.
