When it comes to content, design is inevitable. The question is whether it works. Design is at least 15 times more important than content when it comes to user trust and engagement. In as few as 15 milliseconds, users form first impressions that have measurable consequences for credibility, usability, and engagement.
We tend to think of design as either “good” or “bad,” and as a mysterious and magical thing with a life of its own inspired by an elusive muse and completely subjective in nature. However, design is fundamentally neutral in nature, with no inherent positive or negative qualities. The way we respond to design is based on a complex, yet predictable, interaction between sensory stimuli and human anatomy, neurobiology, and cognition.
The term “design” refers either to the arrangement of things or to the act of arranging things. “Intentional design” refers to the act of deliberately arranging elements to solve a specific problem – that is, to elicit a desired response.
When it comes to content, design is critical. Whether you use intentional design or not, content and design are inseparable; users inevitably perceive and respond to design, and it always makes an impression. So, the key to creating compelling content is learning to use intentional design, rather than incidental design.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his guest, Tina Kister, for this one-hour webinar. Kister will explore the correlations between the science of perception and the discipline of design, and how both are integral to creating effective content. Tina will also distill the basics of design into a few simple concepts, and provide a few basic rules you can use to ensure that every design choice is intentional and effective.

The concept of smart cities has evolved greatly in the past decade. One common trend we have noticed is the growing appreciate for active citizen engagement and contribution towards smarter, more efficient and happier cities.
At the same time there are competing models for the role of technology in society: proprietary, venture capital-backed and frequently extractive (Web 2.0) versus open, co-creative and decentralized (Web 3.0).
In this webinar, blockchain professors and entrepreneurs, David Lee and Boyd Cohen will explore the myriad of reasons why a blockchain approach to the evolution of cities is the superior choice for improving quality of life, ensuring resilience and for enabling urban innovation.

Machine learning systems are used today to make life-altering decisions about employment, bail, parole, and lending. Moreover, the scope of decisions delegated to machine learning systems seems likely only to expand in the future. Unfortunately, serious discrimination, privacy, and even accuracy concerns can be raised about these systems. Many researchers and practitioners are tackling disparate impact, inaccuracy, privacy violations, and security vulnerabilities with a number of brilliant, but often siloed, approaches. This presentation illustrates how to combine innovations from several sub-disciplines of machine learning research to train explainable, fair, trustable, and accurate predictive modeling systems. Together these techniques can create a new and truly human-centered type of machine learning suitable for use in business- and life-critical decision support.

Armin Ebrahimi - CEO and Founder of ShoCardSep 18 20198:00 amUTC56 mins
A discussion on improving the identity management and sharing protocols of today, which are currently fraught with vulnerabilities that turn them into lucrative honeypots for malicious actors – consider the recent breaches of Equifax, Facebook, etc.
Ebrahimi will explain how the use of new technologies (blockchain, zero-knowledge cryptography) can be used to lay the foundations for a revolutionary new identity ecosystem, and assess the impact it will have on legacy sectors.
As fintech rapidly iterates over a traditionally conservative banking industry, it’s important that identity, which is heavily linked to this (consider KYC/AML, signing up for services, etc.), evolves in tandem. It’s now possible to replace inefficient and unsafe practices with vastly more secure offerings that put end user privacy and security at their core.

One of the main reasons’ bots are failing is their conversational ability – or to be more precise, lack of it.
Brilliant bots must give users a humanlike experience, therefore if you’re building a bot, you need to make sure it is able to truly handle natural language conversations. Many of the bots out there may work fine if you follow a linear, prescribed way of engaging with them, by asking the questions and providing information in exactly the way that the bot developer intended. But unfortunately, we as humans tend not to do this—we communicate using natural language. We branch off at tangents, we circle back, we miss out crucial facts and figures, we ask for clarifications. We want to be able to speak to bots in a humanlike manner, and we want those bots to understand us.
Join Andy Peart, CMSO at Artificial Solutions as he discusses what steps to take to create a brilliant bot. As well as, Peter Joles, who will demo a Teneo built solution.

The Internet of Things (IoT) holds huge potential for your organization, but if you’re like most, you still have concerns about security. How can you be sure that the IoT solutions you deploy will enable you to guarantee the security of your organization and your customers?
IoT will be a game changer due to the scope of data and devices, but it also promises to change the security paradigm. The future of IoT will rely on the ability to create a foundation of security, trust, and data integrity, whilst being able to seamlessly manage countless numbers of devices.
Today there is no single vendor responsible for securing IoT. It takes an entire ecosystem of solutions providers working together and playing their part to ensure end-to-end security across the device, network and application.
In this webinar, experts from Thales and Device Authority will share their industry expertise, looking at security risks of IoT devices and infrastructures across many industries including medical devices, industrial manufacturing and automotive - exploring what learnings can be implemented today. You can explore how you can take the first steps to keeping your IoT devices and data secure, and your organization and customers safe.
The agenda will include a discussion around:
• Risks and Challenges of IoT
• Why use PKI for IoT?
• How to automate security operations and management
• Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)
• Examples / Use Cases – Medical, Industrial, Automotive etc.
• Thales & Device Authority Solution
As private and public clouds get less expensive, they’re expected to completely replace on-premises computing to make IT cheaper, easier to run, and more secure. But right now, most enterprises still have their feet in both worlds, using hybrid systems that are intended to make the lives of the CIO and the IT department easier. Unfortunately, the complexity often just adds additional cost and reduces business value.
So how do you harness the power of a hybrid system, with any cloud provider? Desktop-as-a-service is a virtualized interface that makes the complexity of your software completely invisible to your users, and allow IT to spin up a desktop instance with one click. It’s a world where IT no less complex but a lot easier to use -- and your users far more productive.
