Festival of ideas
for Accenture Ireland
The Festival of Ideas is a highly innovative event that brings business strategy to life in an extraordinary and memorable way.
Around a thousand people gather at the CCD in Dublin. Soon there are dozens of conversations happening in small groups – the subjects of these conversations have been crowd-sourced - and the resulting data is fed to ‘The Brain’, a group of hackers, visualisers, journalists and artists who visualise the data and send it to a big screen, thereby creating a feedback loop that informs subsequent conversations.
Thus the wider wisdom of the room as well as the specific matters under discussion are documented and shared throughout the day. Knowledge and experience is gained, shared and recycled. Technology is deployed in a way that’s smart and innovative and which supports human interactions.
A private event but with excitement so palpable it started trending on Twitter.
The software developed to facilitate this event is a proprietary programme that we will develop further with future clients.
