So how do we design for a world in which the distinction between user and object, between people and things is getting more and more blurred (or “everything is someone”)? What new interactions and ‘companion species’ could we imagine once we go beyond anthropomorphic metaphors and point of views?
In this talk at IxDA’s Interaction’20, Andreas and Thomas present a practical framework for how to apply dystopian thinking to design artefacts and how to use them to influence final product and service decisions.
In this talk at Interaction ’20, Ruth Kikin-Gil shows us how to create meaningful Human-AI Interactions that leave users feeling in control, and respect their values, goals, and attention.
Christopher Noessel provides both a conceptual grounding and practical advice to unlock agentive tech massive potential […]

In this talk at IxDA’s Interaction’19, Emily Sappington shares some best practices from designing for AI in both large and small organizations. No matter the company size, a minimum viable product is important to design and not to be the result of unplanned feature cuts. She talks about what Minimum Viable Intelligence is for an AI product, and how designers can deliver a clear UX when solving problems efficiently […]
Technology is ever-changing — and changing ever faster. But what happens when the rate of technological change becomes so fast that the fundamental nature of what it means to be human changes, too?
We can no longer ask users to think like machines just to be able to use software. This talk explores diverse areas of non-digital human experience – including language and theater, neurology and sociology – in order to frame and showcase some of the most exciting current and emerging user experience design practices, both on the web and in other media such as video games and the arts. The objective is quite simply to inspire designers to humanize their interfaces […]
In an exclusive interview with the Chartered Institute of IT, Sir Tim Berners-Lee spoke about the latest on the semantic web, his view on the advent of artificial life forms on the internet, the biggest barriers to enabling the information society for all, where the mobile web is going and more […]
We’ve already seen MIT researcher Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense projector-based augmented-reality system in some cool demos, but he just gave a TED talk and his latest ideas are the wildest yet. At TEDIndia, Pranav Mistry demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data — including a deep look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper “laptop.” In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he’ll open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all.
