Artificial Intelligence: Are we soon to become domestic animals?
“If Robotics get too good, what is the point of us?” - Elon Musk. At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I actually believe it is likely that machines will take control of the world sometime in the second half of this century. Have I watched Terminator a few too many times?

Imitation is the road to hell, right? Not necessarily. Done right it can speed up innovation and deliver better products. 
We all know that innovation is the key to success. But in reality very few companies innovate much. Producing original work takes a lot of time, energy and often delivers worse results than just copying. Excessive aversion to imitation even has a name: “Not invented here”.

Join us on July 17th as we team up with Virgin Unite to host a not-to-miss Hangout featuring three extraordinary leaders in business and product design. Eric Ries of The Lean Startup and Tim Brown, CEO of the famed design firm IDEO will discuss their respective philosophies and how they can be used by entrepreneurs and creatives alike. In addition, Google Ventures Designer Jake Knapp will provide insight into how these two approaches has helped him reimagine product design for businesses of all kinds ranging from artisan coffee shops to high-tech giants.

Have a question for Eric, Tim or Jake? Please submit them on this page before and during the Hangout and we'll take a look!

Design Thinking scheint zur Zeit einen regelrechten Hype zu erfahren. Es wird fast als Wunderheilmittel für Innovation gehandelt. Nicht zu Unrecht. Design Thinking wird eine Kreativmethode genannt, die zur Lösung von Problemen und zur Entwicklung neuer Ideen führen soll.
