But Pixel also learnt a few things...
Yes, it might have been powered by humans, but Pixel still had a mission: to upgrade itself by learning new things. By talking with the delegates, it first learnt that people think innovation is extremely important (8.7/10). “Innovation is about new, or improvement for a product, service, or techniques” as well as “thinking of new ways to solve existing problems.” It also learnt that you have to “take small steps at a time in innovation”.
To ensure Pixel’s future iteration knows what subjects it needs to focus on at its next event, participants were about their favourite soundbites of the day and about their goals for 2020.
Here’s a sample of the things it has added to the list:
- Change management
- Learning from customers to make them happier
- What a digital disruptor is and how to survive it
- The concept that technology is not the disruptor
Apart from that, we even got to chat to fictional characters. Alice in Wonderland and Santa Claus both made appearances. We’re not so sure about their legitimacy, but Pixel is gullible by default.
In the end...
Pixel did a great job of getting people to our exhibition area. It put smiles on people’s faces. We brought floppy disks back from the dead. We delivered a great workshop. We talked to a whole bunch of interesting people. And the studio had fun pretending to be a bot. All in all, a great outcome.
