The Berlin UX360 Research Summit 2024 Social Review

May 16th marked the launch of the first in-person UX360 Research conference in Berlin, drawing 250 participants from over 30 countries. The event transitioned from a virtual platform to a live gathering, bringing together UX researchers for an energetic and engaging experience.

AI was “The Elephant in the Room” and a central theme throughout the Merlien conference. Marcos Nunes-Ueno from Meta emphasized the shift towards a future where AI manages tasks instead of individual apps. Also Akshay Verma from Duolingo highlighted the need to embrace AI while maintaining the essence of user research as a people-oriented discipline. AI can aid in creating discussion guides, survey questions, and enhancing research reports.

One of the most significant takeaways from the conference was the importance of UX researchers identifying the culture of their organizations. By doing so, they can tailor their approaches to leverage research findings effectively, ensuring they are trusted and impactful. This adaptability is crucial for driving meaningful change and fostering a deeper integration of UX research within business strategies.
