One-day Social Impact Workshop


What’s the impact of your technology to my society?

Join us to deep dive on how disruptive technologies such as IOT, fog, cloud, 5G, AR/VR and AI are impacting society through a hands-on workshop using cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative methods across a variety of use cases.

The emerging collision between IoT, fog, cloud, 5G, AR/VR and AI computing technologies and products promises to redefine how people will imagine and shape the future of Live, Work, Play, Shop, Learn, Teach, Heal, Bank, Farm, Make and Move.

These game-changers raise new challenges and opportunities to society such as what are impact to: Citizens? Environment? Health? Education? Government? Energy? Infrastructure?

Join us to deep dive on imagining and shaping the future by listening, learning, networking and contributing to team breakouts that will tackle strategic topics such as:  

•    What are plausible futures of smart spaces in cities, campus, stores, homes or cars?
•    How will the interplay of mega-technologies influence the evolution of these futures?
•    How will business models and ecosystems evolve to thrive under these conditions?
•    What are impact and implications of these technologies and dynamics to society?

Join us in an immersive discussion to imagine and shape the future.

Details of Participant Immersion into Practices & Processes

Over the course of the day, your team of process and domain experts from across industries/functions, will select a use case such as autonomous driving, smart homes, campus, cities, retail, banking or health. Then, you will “learn by doing” by applying a variety of analytical methods and techniques such as design thinking, scenarios, value chain, ecosystem, business modeling, theories of change and logframes to evaluate impact to domains such as privacy, accessibility, trustworthiness or data transparency. At the end of the day, your team will report out insights and recommendations to the rest of teams and a panel of judges from organizations such as Intel, Cisco, OSIsoft, IEEE, frog design, Berkeley Haas, Warwick and ASU who will select the team with the best insights. All participants will gain networking, access to templates of the methods and tools for immediate application to your organization as well as summaries of workshop teams. Target participants includes design thinking, user experience, new product development, strategy & planning, primary/secondary market research, business/market analysis, corporate social responsibility, research & development.
