BIF2015 and Big Design Conference Wrap-Up
September 24, 2015
This week on The Digital Life, we chat about the themes and take aways from the BIF2015 and Big Design conferences.
At BIF 2015, the Business Innovation Factory annual gathering in Providence, RI, personal stories intertwined with tales of innovation and design. One of the primary themes was innovation in education — a social design critical to the future. Storytellers included Jaime Casap, Chief Education Evangelist at Google, who spoke from his own experience about how education disrupts poverty in one generation, and Sophie Houser co-creator of Tampon Run and Girls Who Code alum discussed the power of technology to create discussion and social change.
While at Big Design, the multi-faceted conference for user experience and usability professionals, digital marketers, designers, content strategists and developers, the conversation incorporated not just the digital, but also emerging technologies like robotics.
