Event Overview

 

Humanoid robots work at Singapore Pizza Huts. Cyborgs walk the streets. There’s an AI assistant in every pocket. Cars drive themselves.

These are not visions of the future. This is now.

 

Machine learning, robotics, and AI are transforming the world. FutureWorld 2018 will feature presentations and demos on the future of robotics and AI from creators, researchers, industrialists, and visionaries, offering an inside view of what’s possible, what’s on the horizon, and how you can help design our future.

 

“Ready or not, the robots are coming. There will be cars driving themselves, with no steering wheel for us to grab. Delivery drones will maneuver around patio furniture and vegetable gardens to drop packages in backyards. Delivery carts on sidewalks will hum along, bringing pizza boxes to our front doors.”

– Matt McFarland, The Washington Post, Dec 18, 2015

 

Design thinking for robots and AI.

 

Collaboration between designers and engineers will shape the robot revolution. FutureWorld will help forge those connections, bringing roboticists out of their workshops to give attendees a glimpse of our future. Designers, engineers, inventors, technologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and fans of the future should attend to get an inside view on what’s currently possible, what’s on the horizon, and how to help shape our future.

 

Join us for this inspiring day that will include 7 presentations, a panel conversation, and hands on demos.

The 1st Common Room of the term; the monthly casual, comfortable & collegial social gathering for the graduate community, students and faculty, at OCAD University! This month we invite you to join us for the opening of the Florence Contemporary Residency group exhibition.
An exhibition by Brandon Fujimagari, Cleo Halfpenny, Sangmin Lee September 20 - October 14
Skawennati and Jason Edward Lewis write, make art, invent technologies, and run workshops that teach Indigenous youth how to make video games and machinima (among other things). Their individual and collaborative works have been distributed and celebrated online, in gallery exhibitions, public installations, and at media and Indigenous arts festivals across Canada and internationally. Critical to their creative practice is the idea that their work in the virtual world helps to enact positive change in the real world.  
Drawing from Peter’s current research into a critical history of data visualization and his previous journalistic work on product design, this talk makes connections between international standards of fit, measurement and time and their entanglement with Western industrialization and colonization. He’ll argue that in this history of measurement there are links between an aesthetic movement and racist scientific theories of the 19th and 20th century that will help us better understand the long shadow of Modernism in design education.
