Friday at 15:00See full program
Sebastian has always been passionate about bringing technology closer to the people. However, his background in Software Engineering only gave him a limited perspective on the meaning and the impact of technology on people and our environment. In 2015 his life changed. He was working on a project to assess medical students in the federal exams. One of the exams was just about to start when one of the examiner refused to use the iPad assmessment app. He was afraid of the technology because he had never held such a device in his hands before. After walking him through the process he agreed to use it. At the end of the exam Sebastian asked about his experience and the examiner was genuinely delighted. He said that he would never ever want the tedious paper assessment checklists back and that he would now go and buy an iPad for himself. This is when Sebastian got to understand the value of design.
Subsequently he went to Copenhagen and successfully completed the Interaction Design Programme at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, bringing togehter his passions and expertise on both design and technology.
