ABOUT THE EVENT

Creating successful interactions between human beings and robots

Starship robots are undoubtedly Otaniemi’s unofficial mascot. But when we think about robots we think of futuristic life-like machines that are taking over the world. So how did starships become so cute and unassuming? 

 

Whether robots are going to take over or continue to deliver our groceries, there is a clear movement toward automation. In addition to this, our world is changing to one where some of our human to human interactions are changing to human-computer interactions. Come find out about the design process of robots with Starship’s Head of Design, Monica Zych. 

Monika Zych is the Head of Design at Starship Technologies where she leads a group of talented product engineers. She has been designing digital user experiences for over 15 years across a variety of industries and countries. Her background synthesises design, business and technology which helped her design products and services that solve real problems and improve people’s life. Monika has worked with big organisations and small startups and she is a proud alumna of Nordkapp, Kurppa Hosk and Fjord/Accenture Song.
