Opening Keynote #1 @ Summit 1 Hall

Emotionally connecting to the next 50 years
society

In his keynote, Tong Yee will be speaking about the complexity of emotion and unpack for us an understanding of crucial emotions like apathy, cynicism and indifference. We all understand how much these emotions can stunt progress and impede collaboration, but are we also cognizant of how we contribute to the origin and growth of these emotions? How can we meaningfully address them and why addressing this is a crucial pillar of our strategy come the next few decades.

How UX and Data Storytelling Can Shape Policy
society

How can we take UX and Data Storytelling out of the tech context and use them to change the way government behaves?

Showcasing the truth is the highest goal of data storytelling. Because the design of a chart can affect the interpretation of data in a major way, one must wield visual tools with care and deliberation. Using quantitative facts to evoke an emotional response is best achieved with the combination of UX and data storytelling.
