About the event

In this special Wired Sussex event for Brighton Digital Festival, respected designer Andy Budd gives you his take on automation and how to design for it.

His talk takes you through 2,000 years of robot evolution, from the mechanical statue of Cleopatra in Alexandria, to the latest lab experiments.

During this journey, Andy will touch on issues of technology, morality and the socio-economic effects of a world dominated by robots.

As a UX design and service designer, Andy looks at how robots will be increasingly used to deliver service experiences, and what designers need to do in order to create the perfect human-robot interaction.


More about Andy:
Andy was one of the first pioneers of web standards and his blog and best-selling book, CSS Mastery: Web Standards Solutions, helped set the tone for progressive web-design in the UK. As well as being one of the founders of UX agency, Clearleft, he organises UX London each year, and founded Leading Design in 2016.

This event is proud to be a part of Brighton Digital Festival.
