Learn how psychology and technology drive innovation
If you’re attending SXSW, this year, I’m participating in a panel you won’t want to miss. The 21st Annual SXSW Interactive conference returns to Austin March 7 -11, 2014. The event features five days of compelling programs, presentations and panels all focused on emerging technology, a topic which has earned the festival a reputation as a breeding ground for new and creative ideas.
I’m thrilled to participate in the conversation this year and to interact with some of the brightest minds in cutting edge technology.
On Monday, March 10, I’ll join The Weather Channel’s Cameron Clayton and Kayak Music’s Giorgos Zacharia for a discussion about the intersection of psychology and technology and how that drives mobile innovations.
In today’s world, devices have completely transformed the way we discover, connect and share. Today, we share most aspects of our lives on the go and have personal reactions to the tech we use, fueled by a host of human emotions. With that, companies are purposely developing mobile experiences that spark a range of behaviors that help us live happier, more productive lives.
This is what we’ll be digging into during the ‘Can You Feel Me Now?’ panel discussion – consumer’s demand for a mobile experience that‘s personalized and human, and on what companies are doing to make sure their products are triggering a human and emotional connection.
Head here to find out more about the panel – or better yet, to add it to your SXSW schedule if you’ll be in Austin.
Hope to see you there.
