According to designer Tom Wujec, the fourth industrial revolution will radically transform the nature of design. In the years to come, expect humans’ role in design to diminish as technology and machine-learning algorithms assume the bulk of the work. This evolution may sound discomfiting, as society tends to regard design and creativity as uniquely human faculties. Yet Wujec reassures that the evolution of design will benefit those who can leverage it. getAbstract recommends his startling report to creatives and designers who must prepare for the upheaval underway.
