About “Ergonomics of the Human Mind”

What goes on in our heads when we make decisions? What is intuition? What constitutes the thinking-self? Why do we like a good story? What constitutes human experience? What constitutes a pleasurable experience? What role does the human mind play in all this? Vijay will be utilizing the power of design, research and strategy to answer these questions and more when he takes the stage Friday in Detroit.

A designer of systems, processes and artifacts, Vijay Chakravarthy, IDSA, applies design as a strategy to envision and facilitate meaningful outcomes.
