Design a sheep for me

  • Talks & Workshops
  • At the crossroads between art, technology and society one of computing flagship themes, design, is at the forefront of Web2day.







    Morning – Chapitalk Room

    From 9:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. , a morning of talks to open the festival.


    From 9:50 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. we begin with talks about reality and identity. Why are these themes correlated with design? Thomas Buvignier will explain the importance of design in encouraging micro-interactions with consumers. For those who love UX and UI, or who would like to undestand what these terms mean…go to the talk “There’s no magic, everything is in the detail“.

    From 10:30 a.m. to 11:10 p.m., it’s the turn of Tony Aubé’s presentation on artificial intelligence and augmented reality. #RéalitésMixtes #ProjetsAR

    From 11:10 a.m. to 11:50 a.m., Maaike Dufour will be discussing the importance of quality interfaces in applications which make use of the user’s voice.

    From 11:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Steph Throet will talk about the theory of “jobs to be done” (“JBTD”). Jobs To Be Done “offers a means of breaking down the complex reasons for which a person might “pick” a product for completing a “job” and methods of identifying strategic opportunities”.


    Afternoon – Maxi Room

    From 5:20 p.m. to 5:40 p.m., Ghada Whali will show us ways of learning foreign languages through play. This talk will be about learning Arabic with… Lego!
