Listen to Erik Dahl’s “Designing for Emerging Technologies” talk
As we face a future where what it means to be human will be inexorably changed, we desperately need experience design to help frame our interactions with emerging technologies — from skin-top embeddable computers to bio printable organs to swarming robots to human genome hacking to content aware environments — that are already racing ahead of our ability to process and manage them on an emotional, ethical, and societal level.
This talk at IA Summit 2014 is source of inspiration to look beyond the screen to the rich world of interactions and experiences that need to be designed; and as a preliminary resource for methods, and ways to approach unique problem sets presented by these emerging technologies — genomics, robotics, biotech, and connected environments.
This talk explores frameworks and techniques needed for this burgeoning practice area of experience design for emerging technologies. These technologies will shape the places we live and work as well as the very nature of the human condition. We need to take an active role in shaping our future
