KIN Autumn Workshop: Experiencing The Future With Immersive Technologies on 10th and 11th September 2018

While the advances in artificial intelligence and robotics continue to accelerate and amaze, it is the combination of machines with humans' distinctive strengths that will be the real driver for productivity and value creation. Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications provide the interface that bridges the gap between the digital and physical worlds. They help humans enhance their own capabilities by taking full advantage of new digital knowledge and machine capabilities.

Masterclass: LEGO Serious Play on 09 November 2018, 10:30 - 16:00hrs

Do you use your hands to think?

Creativity, ideation and design thinking are all important components of innovation and problem solving. However, it’s often difficult to get the creative juices flowing without some external stimulus.

LEGO Serious Play (LSP) is a high-energy creativity, communication and problem-solving technique. It enables faster and better decisions with more commitment from participants. It’s particularly effective at releasing untapped potential (people always ‘know more than they know they know’) and latent ideas.
