Scientific methods evolve now at the speed of software; the skill most in demand among physicists, biologists, chemists, geologists, even anthropologists and research psychologists, is facility with programming languages and “data science” packages. And yet the basic means of communicating scientific results hasn’t changed for 400 years. Papers may be posted online, but they’re still text and pictures on a page.
High Resolution is a limited video series on product design and design thinking. We’ll discuss how the best companies approach, communicate and deploy design. We’re filming 25 episodes with 25 masters of the industry.
