Nerd Talk

Everything Interface

Jun 03, 2023

It’s easy to notice from every social media feed and online news a substantial increase in AI products where you can achieve incredible results with the smallest effort. This disruptive way to think about “doing things” also inspired the title of Alessio’s talk for Design Matters Tokyo 23 “Everything Interface”. What he is referring to when using this title, is something along the lines of taking a photo of a box and turning it into a building through an inpainting process. In other words, extending our ideas and bringing them to life using the creativity we are all born with.
