Design for the whole person.
Human-centered design for our shared futures.
We spend a lot of time designing the bridge, but not enough time thinking about the people crossing it.
Prabhjot Singh, Director of Systems Design at the Earth Institute
The future is both human-centered and grounded in technology. We need data-driven designs, improved machine learning, and AI like algorithms. But we also need to design for our humanity and our shared planet. We need to encourage collaboration across cultures and between diverse communities. We need to take into account the entirety of our lived experience. And our modern sense of self does not cut it. We need to come up with new stories if we are going to face our shared challenges in the coming century and beyond.
