Here is a brief description about the event:

Based on the work of Tristan Harris and the Time Well Spent initiative, learn what the battle against youth tobacco use can teach us about how to tackle the current problems of technology and smartphone addiction. Digging deeper into App features, we’ll uncover deliberate design techniques that seek to exploit every moment in our new attention-based economy.  Armed with that new knowledge, we’ll discuss tools, tips, and strategies to help parents and children ensure that device-time is satisfying and productive.
