SydDT #82: 8th Birthday & Will AI Make Me a Design-osaur?

On Thursday, 15 June 2023 we celebrated Sydney Design Thinking’s 8th birthday and our 82nd meetup. A fun night of sharing thoughts, ideas, and concerns… with pizza, drinks, and cupcakes. Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a fun night!

Kate Linton led us through a session on a topic that’s on the mind of a lot of people right now… Will AI Make Me a Design-osaur? It was interesting seeing some of the themes that emerged as people shared their hopes and fears. Couldn’t make it or just want to relive it? You can watch it now.

A huge thanks to Michelle Cabanela, Brenton Kalisch, and Gina Snodgrass from ThinkPlace for hosting and sponsoring.

Finally, thanks to the rest of the organising crew Kate Linton, Zoe (Rosen) Gibson, Kylie Mageropoulos, and Lucas Mara… we’re a small volunteer team who put this together every month. Also a shout out to Kingsley Jones and James Cooper who were part of the founding team back in 2015 for the first few years. Miss you both!

Our next SydDT is on Thursday, 13 July and is part of Plastic Free July! We’re lucky to have Jo Taranto from Good for the Hood speaking.

Don’t know about Plastic Free July yet or want to get ready for the challenge? Check out their website for resources and ideas to help you reduce single use plastic waste.

See you there!

Meetup Announcement

Please join us to celebrate our 8th birthday. Come along for a chat and share your thoughts, ideas, and concerns – with pizza, drinks, and cake.

Will AI Make Me a Design-osaur?

With the rapid advent of GenAI tools like ChatGPT and MidJourney, we are starting to see opportunities for greater efficiency in our work lives. But lurking behind the hype is the ever-present concern about the ethical use of technologies like these, and the worry about being replaced by bots. What does it mean for your design career?

It will be a fun night of celebration and cupcakes!
