Event description

Description

Mark43 is a start-up that is reinventing public safety software applications from the ground up. Our mission is to empower communities and their governments with new technologies that improve the safety and quality of life for all. Mark43 hires design interns every summer. If you are interested in applying, this is a great way to meet the team and see if you like our fast-paced work environment! To learn more about Mark43 visit us at mark43.com.

This workshop will be lead by product designers at Mark43, who will guide students through the team's design process. Students will be challenged to juggle design decisions with ethical implications, something this team balances every day.

Topics explored during this workshop:

Unconscious bias in design
• Responsible data collection in communities
• Practical application of machine learning and AI in software
• Accessible & inclusive design
• UX thinking

The workshop will wrap up with each team presenting their solution to the group and a pizza party! Students will leave with a UX project to add to their portfolio as well as feedback from working professionals on their project.
