Every month, Nerd Nite gathers smart speakers and a curious crowd, then add to it a bar and some mingling. This month the topics are a new academic field called “quantitative user experience” and looking at Japan’s cluster-focused approach to COVID-19.

1. Kitty Z. Xu (Quant UX Con) — From brain science to quantitative UX
2. Harald Kümmerle (Twitter) — ‘Heretic dataism’ and Japan’s cluster-focused approach to COVID-19

This month, there will also be a few surprises in store to celebrate the 50th iteration of the event. Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and light snacks will be available. Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
