What if technology could distract us less and respect our time and attention more? What would that world look like, and how could it be built? What if we could design to make our Darwinian instincts work for us instead of against us? Inspired by the human potential movement of the 1960s, Tristan Harris opens a conversation about a new kind of design ethics that puts meaningful choices and human potential first.
Tristan will cover:
Tristan Harris is a design thinker, philosopher, and entrepreneur—most recently focused on design ethics.

Currently, Tristan is developing a design framework at Google to help product designers facilitate conscious choices for users. Before this, he was cofounder and CEO of Apture, an instant explanation engine that enabled millions of users to get on-the-fly explanations about any topic without leaving their place on the Web. Google acquired Apture in 2011.
