Since the Cambridge Analytica scandal, we all now know that algorithms have the power to deliver what seems "suitable" to us based on our internet history, and ‘nudge’ our behaviour to the extent of changing electoral outcomes. Game over?

Phil Bonhard - Customer Experience Lead - Lloyds Banking Group

Dr Philip Bonhard is the Head of Customer Experience at Lloyds Banking Group.

Not only do we live in a 24/7 always on society, where products and services are available at your fingertips; we also live in a "post truth" world, where facts often don't matter as much as "alternative facts".

Digital designers, UX, UI, SD, or whichever acronym you prefer, have an increased responsibility to not only ask whether they're building the product right (i.e. will it convert), but also whether we're building the right product and what impact it has on its target audience and everyone else.

In this presentation Phil will look at the ethical implications of digital product design and what designers can do to help build a better world.
