CHIFOO presents "Caring Technologies Designing For Trust And Care" with Amelia Abreu, UX Night School!

Technology has the potential to shape the way that we give and receive care and the conditions in which the work of care is done. Yet, can we automate the crucial tasks of caring, and is it in our own interest to do so? How can we design services, along with products and systems, to support care?
