Pete Lacey – Designing Soul into Software

June 29, 2023

Pete Lacey is worried. As we rush towards rapid and cost-efficient software production, are we inadvertently settling for a landscape of dull functionalism? In this talk, Pete will explore what it means to build ‘soul’ into software. He will discuss the importance of crafting playful, joyful, and occasionally useless experiences that feel innately human – even as human involvement in future development likely dwindles thanks to progressions in AI.
