Professor Saakes and our PhD student, Bokyung Lee, went to Australia to do a presentation and a panel talk for IASDR 2015.
Bokyung Lee did her presentation on big data in design. Her talked went over some of her work dealing with extracting meaningful data from reviews from online retailers, such as Amazon, to provide product designers with a better understanding of customer needs.
Professor Saakes was invited to join the Blending Design Research and Practice panel at the conference. As one of the five invited panelists, he gave a talk on his thoughts on design.
