In this world of autonomous technologies where we are empowering non-humans on a daily basis to take over our lives our role as a designer will have to be re-written. My consversation with you will be targetted towards a starting a thread which will compel us to think and challenge our current modus operandi.
The talk will be structured as following:

2) Looking at the growth of technology and machines (with examples)
3) Validating our current roles against tech landscape
4) Inciting thoughts by looking at some current designers and their roles
