Pop culture assures us that cyborgs are inevitable but how might this cyborgian future begin? Will it be military tech that filters to public use like the internet, radar, or duct tape did? Will it be robotics tech that becomes medically effective such as motorized limb & joint prosthetics or eyeball cameras? Or will it be DIY grinders who build tech in their home workshops and jam it into their bodies just to see what happens? Would it surprise you to know that all 3 scenarios are happening all over the world today? What might the UX future look like when people have chip implants, video cam eyeballs, or neural antennae? What policies or regulations should be put in place before we all merge into the Borg?

We have an exciting year lined up, and to kick it off we’ve invited Rob Smith to drop by and talk about his approach to designing customer experience for some of the biggest brands.
Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Green Melon, Rob has spent the past thirty years reinventing the way brands engage and intrigue their customers. Drawing from his work with clients like Farm Boy, DC Comics, and the Royal Canadian Mint, Rob will discuss how successful brands consider a customer’s journey, from their first step into a retail space to the moment they select a product from the shelf.
Join us for a very special evening with economist, columnist, entrepreneur and activist Erica Ifill.
As a columnist for the Hill Times and founder of Not in My Colour, Erica has been a voice for equity and inclusivity in government, technology and design.
A very warm welcome home for our CapCHI family!
We are excited to kick-off the 2020–2021 season with a trivia networking event. The evening will feature an introduction to the CapCHI executive team, followed by an overview of the fantastic season we have lined up. Then, we will break out into several rooms to get to know each other, and test our wits with a round of carefully crafted UX brain teasers.
