WORLD USABILITY DAY NOVEMBER 12, 2020

World Usability Day’s goal is to raise our standards so that technology works to harness human potential. Every second Thursday in November events occur around the world that bring together different communities to celebrate how we can make our world easy for all.



2020 Theme:
Human-Centered AI

In our theme this year, Human-Centered AI we seek to explore design systems that are both highly automated and allow a great degree of user control and will result in to expand human capabilities 1000-fold. If we can design AI which is “reliable, trusted, and safe” we can dramatically enhance human performance in the coming decade.

Over the last two decades computers have advanced human’s abilities to perform our work, ensure our safety, and even lightened our workload. Interest in AI’s capabilities to expand human performance even further continues to increase. However, there is an accompanying fear that humans will lose control of the technology they create.

Next Round

for World Usability Day Leipzig

On thursday, 12th of November, WUD Leipzig will take place for the fourth time.

Since a couple of weeks we’re busy preparing and setting up everything. Despite the coronavirus pandemic we want to conduct this event with all the guests from past years – and maybe some additional ones. So we’re searching for ways to have this Event take place no matter the situation – in case of doubt we’ll have it be a remote conference!

If you want to stay tuned on how things are processing, check out on Facebook and Twitter 🙂

Right now our Call for Participation is ongoing, you can check it out via https://www.itsonix.eu/wud/
