Session Title: From Popeye to Pop-up:  
An Exploration of Design with Ship Designers Turned Card Creators

Artaic - Innovative Mosaic
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Title: Mosaics & Robots: Adapting an Ancient Art Form for the 21st Century

 

How do you take an ancient art form, traditionally handmade by master craftsmen, and make it accessible for today's customers?

At Artaic, our goal is to make ordering custom tile as simple as purchasing stock product. We modernize the creation of architecturally compelling mosaics through fast design iterations, free sampling, and American robotic production.

As part of this session we will lead attendees through our entire process - from design to fabrication. Attendees will get an up close look at Tessera, our proprietary design software, and each part of our robotic manufacturing process. At the end, attendees will have a deeper understanding of our process and how we are able to quickly and efficiently produce large-scale mosaics for clients such as MIT, Disney, Legal Seafoods, MGM Resorts International, the Ritz-Carlton, and more.

Limited Capacity filling up

Session Title: Using the 'Organs-On-Chips' technology to emulate living human biology

Emulate will demo their "Organs-on-Chips" technology inside their new innovation laboratory at The Innovation & Design Building - showing how they combine micro-engineered environments with human cells, to emulate living human biology. The system offers reserachers and product development teams a new standard for predicting human response in real-time - with greater precision and control than today's cell-culture or animal-based testing methods.

Learn and discuss how Emulate's bold new precision medicine and personal health initiative - named "Patient-on-a-Chip" - is developing unique 'human-chips' personalized with an individual's own living cells - to help transform the way each of us understand our own body, and manage our own health.
