It’s been a long time since our last DC-based event, but this one was worth the wait. On May 17, Innovators Network will be hosting a discussion with Intel’s Genevieve Bell, their in-house anthropologist and one of the world’s foremost experts on user experience design. Dr. Bell will cover the basics of user experience design and how technology companies of any size can employ them to improve the value of their products to users.

Building on her article in the Wall Street Journal Europe, she will also discuss the evolving role of 2nd screens (mobile phones and tablets) and how they will change the future of television and story telling.
