Not to be missed for tech geeks, armchair anthropologists and designers alike. Join Nokia’s behavioral pattern expert Jan Chipchase as he discusses the challenges of exploring patterns in human behavior, culture and technology, and the art of finding opportunties where they collide.
Jan conducts design research for Nokia, bringing insights and experiences from the real world to inform and inspire the design process as well as to guide corporate strategy. His research has taken him across the globe, providing a unique perspective on how ideas and technologies travel. He currently works out of Los Angeles after eight years in Tokyo as Principal Researcher at Nokia Research Center.
The talk will be in English, with Chinese translation, and followed by a discussion. We strongly advise you to RSVP fast (send an email with your name, affiliation and contact number to panthea.lee at gmail dot com) as seats are limited.
