Design Intersections: Design + Data + Behavior

The changing role of design, and how it informs human-centered solutions, increasingly demands that designers re-orient toward “design and…” by problem solving with other disciplines.

IIT Institute of Design (ID) invites you to explore the intersections of Design + Data + Behavior to discuss emerging data-driven futures in domains such as health care, financial services, and public policy, and to better enable us to wrestle with them. Together, we'll explore real-world contexts where data and behavior change are already colliding, as well as new tools and methodologies to evolve our individual and collective points of view about how to navigate these futures.
