Ulrich Weinberg: Network Thinking. Was Kommt Nach Dem Brockhaus-Denken?
  • Description

    Wir brauchen einen radikalen Wandel im Denken und Handeln, sagt Ulrich Weinberg - weg vom linearen Denken hin zum Network Thinking. In der von digitaler Vernetzung geprägten heutigen Welt brauchen wir Kollaboration, kreative Verknüpfung von scheinbar nicht Zusammenhängendem und vor allem Enthierarchisierung.

Opening Keynote By Prof. Ulrich Weinberg, HPI D-school / Intersection'15 + DMI Europe In Berlin
  • Description

    Prof. Weinberg is the head of the HPI Design School in Potsdam, since 2007 and his connection with the D-School gives him extensive experience in Design Thinking. Prof. Weinberg has a passion for solving problems through focusing on human values and connected thinking which makes his ideas infectious to his students.

    Uli Weinberg comes from a television media and computer-graphic industry. Spending 25 years in a niche market, he had a single perspective towards business strategies and solving problems.

    It wasn't until Prof. Weinberg visited Stamford University that he witnessed a unique way of thinking, a way of solving problems by thinking “out of the box”. Placing students from different professional sectors in teams, they were able to solve problems by focusing on human needs and values rather than using technology and business strategies. The concept of using real time thinking and grouping people into teams from different disciplines has revolutionized how Uli Weinberg looked at education.

    “After 25 years of interdisciplinary, innovation driven work in film, 3D animation and computer games, I didn´t hesitate a second to take on a challenge of building an institute which focused on innovation in all areas of life”.

Social Robots For The Future And NOW - Dr. Cory Kidd
  • Description

    Meet Autom - your weight loss coach. (Yes! Besides Dr. Kidd, Autom will be there to meet us as well.) For many decades, movies like Blade Runner, Bicentennial Man, and I, Robot, have made us believe that someday, human interaction with our machine friends can be as seamless as it is with our human counterparts. Is the future finally here? If so, how real is this? What are the applications for social robots and how do we make them? We are delighted to have one of our Media Lab alum, Dr. Kidd, who specializes in human-robot interaction to help us decode the mystery.

    Dr. Cory Kidd is the founder and CEO of Catalia Health, a healthcare technology company focused on delivering effective behavior change. The company has developed a hardware and software platform that uses a combination of psychology and artificial intelligence to successfully engage patients through interactive conversations. These conversations happen through mobile, web, and socially interactive robot interfaces; together these interfaces create a relationship that can reach patients at any time they need support. The data reported back through the system gives Catalia Health’s institutional healthcare customers valuable information to understand the daily activities and needs of their patients.
