AI, Web3 and design | Glasgow
Join us in Glasgow on 15 June | 2:45 – 5:30pm BST | Box Hub
Dissecting the latest developments in AI and Web3 and their implications for your design business and team.
Undoubtably this is a vast topic on everyone’s minds at the moment and one that impacts all areas of our lives. So, whether you’re a Web3 expert or using ChatGPT to help with tonight’s dinner, we want to bring you together and get under the skin of what it means in relation to the design industry.
DBA Chair and Founder & Chief Experience Officer at Else, Warren Hutchinson, will lead the way, guiding you through the critical areas that matter in design. Damian Smith and Jack Burn, from DBA Member business ISO Design are going to share how they apply AI to their work, and Dr Kendra Briken, Senior Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde will get you thinking about the impact of AI on your workplace cultures. You’ll have the opportunity to share your perspectives, debate what the latest developments mean for the industry and meet local members in your area.
Join the DBA in person this summer as we get under the skin of the topics everyone is talking about. Each event will provide knowledge, discussion, and insight through a mix of informative talks from industry experts, interactive sessions, and member case studies. An important part of bringing our members and the design community together face-to-face will be the chance to network and share ideas with your peers in your local area. These events are open to all team members from DBA member businesses, so bring your colleagues along. If you’re interested in getting a taste of what DBA membership has to offer, join us and your peers in your local area.
