| Feltron: Art vs. Product |
A decade of data collection and visualization has given Nicholas a unique point of view. His experience with the Annual Report series has also fueled the development of several digital products, each with differing degrees of success. In this new talk, Nicholas reflects on what has worked and what has not as he attempts to incorporate these lessons into a new tool.

| These Important Years |
Architecture and design have much to teach us in an increasingly sentient and intelligent world. As it turns out, we’ve been learning those lessons for a long time. In this talk, Molly Wright Steenson looks back to look forward—to the origins of artificial intelligence and cybernetics and its collaborations with designers and architects starting in the 1950s, and the ways that those projects illuminated our ideas about interactivity today.
This nexus of technology, architecture, and design has captivated Molly for over a decade and is the subject of her forthcoming book Architectural Intelligence: How Designers and Architects Created the Digital Landscape (MIT Press). A Minneapolis native who used to live across Loring Park from the Walker Art Center, she is proudly copping the title of this talk from one of her favorite Hüsker Dü songs.

| How We Became Machine Readable |
What if the structure of information reveals more than the information itself? What if the most crucial aspect of a dataset is the moment before it becomes one? This talk is about the messy spaces between categorization and collection, as explored through a series of projects that aim to reveal the ways in which we are being and have always been abstracted, represented, classified, and forgotten.
Alexander Chen at Eyeo 2017
| Seeing Music |
Alex loves music and coding. He loves that coding lets you see music in new ways, and explore fun questions. How does music really work? What might the music of Bach or Debussy look like? What if you could turn anything into music – even a subway map? He's been exploring these ideas through personal projects and his work at Google Creative Lab. In this talk he shares what he's learned and presents some live demonstrations.
