Jacobs Design Conversations: Greg Petroff, “Design and the Internet of Important Things”

About Jacobs Design Conversations

Each semester, the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation invites leading designers and makers to Berkeley to speak as part of the Jacobs Design Conversations series. Connecting diverse perspectives under one roof, Jacobs Design Conversations are spaces for dialogue on a broad spectrum of innovations and ideas.

As part of this series, Greg Petroff will share his insights with Berkeley’s design innovation community on Friday, April 1. The talk will take place at Jacobs Hall, the Jacobs Institute’s hub for hands-on learning and making.
