Human-Computer Interaction and User Experience are a mindset. They assume that the world of technology and information is designed and malleable. Instead of expecting people to passively adapt to the ways that information is presented to them by technologies, folks who are trained in HCI/UX expect technologies to adapt to the ways that people find, assess, and use information. In this session, we'll adopt the design thinking mindset to think about societal problems where HCI/UX professionals are changing our information society.
