Digital visionaries discuss Designing the Future

dConstruct, an annual digital design conference which brings together some of the worlds leading digital visionaries, has announced its tenth anniversary speaker line-up and theme - Designing the Future. 

The one-day experiential and futuristic conference takes place at the Brighton Dome on 11 September.

Speakers include futurologist from Intel, Brian David Johnson, who looks 10-15 years into the future and envisions how humans and technology will interact and what the world will look like.

Also on the bill is Carla Diana, hybrid product designer and leading mind on the Internet of Things, who will be bringing her childlike robot, Simon, onto the stage. 

Josh Clark, multiplatform designer and author of Tapworthy, and Dan Hill, Designer, urbanist and former CEO at Fabrica, are also speakers at the event, claimed to be the longest running tech gathering of its kind in Europe. 

dConstruct 2015 will delve into topics such as past visions of the future, a reflection on how previous generations imagined the world of today, what they got right and what they got wrong.

It will also explore whether we’re ever likely to get the flying cars and jetpacks predicted by Hollywood, and whether or not it would be a good thing if we did.

The conference will also ask serious questions about the moral implications of a future dictated by the entertainment industry, and ask how designers can create more realistic imaginings of the future to harness technology in a way that improves lives.
