This talk explores how AI is transforming design processes, enhancing creativity, and rapidly reshaping the roles of creatives, product designers, and design leaders. Moving beyond the hype, we examine the impact of AI and other emerging technologies on the field of design at large and how they give rise to new skill sets such as meta and computational design. If you want to stay ahead in the ever-evolving landscape but feel overwhelmed by the daily influx of new tools (we understand!), join Nadia for sense-making and zooming out to arrive at a bigger picture together.
