Tech Events weekly email newsletter.
What happens when a Facebook profile outlives our friends? Or when our text messages can be used to train an AI twin that can chat with loved ones after we die? Today, information about our lives can be packaged, transmitted, & analyzed like never before. As the traces of our lives are measured, tracked, & simulated to lead digital lives of their own, we ask: what will it mean to die tomorrow?

For our Dying Tomorrow workshop, swissnex San Francisco will convene experts from design, health, technology, & research to examine how technology shapes grieving in the digital age & beyond. Beginning with inspiration talks from experts, we will embrace collaborative design exercises to invent new rituals, technologies, & industry practices that make space for mourning. Together, we'll imagine new futures for loss & grief, with participants developing provocative, thoughtful, critical, & even playful concepts that put humans at the center.

Speakers include Ajay Chander, Vice President of Research, Fujitsu Laboratories of America; Sean Mulholland, IDEO Design + Team Lead; Megan Rosenbloom, Co-Founder, Death Salon; & Francesca Bosisio, Head of Research, Collaboratoire, University of Lausanne.
