A Look Inside the Capital One House


Staying true to Austin’s innovative, dynamic vibe, Capital One is back at SXSW for the fourth year in a row with an energetic lineup of talks and music.

SXSW has given Capital One House attendees a behind-the-scenes look at the design and development of new innovations that are helping customers be more confident with their money. In years past, they’ve delivered on open-source projects, SMS chatbots, and the first-ever Alexa skill created by a bank — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

With SXSW 2018 less than a month away, Capital One is eager to host almost 20 talks at the Capital One House at Antone’s, plus several interactive physical experiences.

Want a preview of what to expect? Below is a sneak peek at some of the Capital One House talks, but you can find the full lineup here!

  • Become a Machine Learning Expert in Under an Hour: Machine learning is all the rage – everyone wants to utilize this buzzworthy technology, and rightfully so – but what exactly is machine learning? This talk breaks it down.

  • Elevating Blacks in Tech: Industry leaders get real on how to better engage blacks in technology careers and empower them to succeed.

  • Future of Interfaces: Beyond Glass: Geek out as you learn how interfaces and the way people interact with them change — particularly as emerging technologies are opening up new ways for people to interact with the digital and physical world.

  • Prioritizing Perspective in Life + Work: Life throws you curveballs. A talk on how one man — who was diagnosed with meningococcal meningitis at the age of 19, and then became a bilateral amputee — chose to prioritize a positive perspective.

  • Designing with Humanity: Behavior defines us. It also defines our users. Designing for it means isolating actions you want to encourage in your users and back-casting from there. Take away tangible design practices.

Mum’s the word on Capital One’s evening entertainment for now, but they’re sure to announce some great artists soon — follow them on Twitter and Facebook for more — or check out the SXSW GO mobile app.
