What threat does technology pose to the creative industry? Four design leaders share their thoughts
Words by It's Nice That, Wednesday 26 September 2018
Technological advancement is, if you’ve momentarily forgotten, altering the way we interact with pretty much everything. It speeds up the product production process, its changed with we way communicate with friends, and even how we get a pizza delivered on a day when we’re too hungover to amble to the shops. It’s even, somehow, affecting what we read — only last week AI Instagram influencer Lil Miquela made her writing debut for Dazed.
As great as these things can be, every so often something will give us pause for thought. What if these changes put us all out of work? Maybe our personal choices have already become algorithmic without us even knowing it? What responsibilities do we have to start putting parameters on it? Actually — is it that the responsibility of designers?
