Every month, we gather some smart speakers and a curious crowd, add a bar, and create something unique.
Did you know that researchers at tech companies created a new academic field — quantitative user experience — just a decade ago? Or that Japan’s thinking on the COVID-19 pandemic could be called “heretic?” Our speakers are here to enlighten and explain.
This is Nerd Nite Tokyo #50, and we’re planning a few surprises to celebrate this milestone! Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and light snacks will be available. Eat, drink and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
- Kitty Z. Xu (Quant UX Con) — From brain science to quantitative UX
- Harald Kümmerle (Twitter) — ‘Heretic dataism’ and Japan’s cluster-focused approach to COVID-19

COVID-19 safety policy
To help protect the health of all attendees and the general public, we ask you to please wear a mask that fully covers your nose and mouth at all times, unless you are drinking or eating.
In particular, please make sure that you use your mask any time that you are speaking, unless you are currently on stage.
We recommend the use of surgical masks made from ‘non-woven’ material, as well as masks that meet the N95, KN95, or DS2 standards. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one to you at the door.
We also strongly encourage you to have received at least three doses of a government-approved COVID-19 vaccine, but we will not require proof of vaccination.
