Lift 07: Embracing The Real World's Messiness

  1. 1. Embracing the real world’s messiness Fabien Girardin Pompeu Fabra University Interactive Technology Group
  2. 2. seamlessness, invisibility, calmness, “ambient intelligence”
  3. 3. “cloud of connectivity”
  4. 4. automatic doors picture: temp13rec.
  5. 5. the world is messy
  6. 6. infrastructures break down
  7. 7. heterogeneity
  8. 8. heterogeneity
  9. 9. Eboy http://hello.eboy.com/eboy/2007/01/20/pt_babeltower_01tpng/ co-existence of technologies
  10. 10. ownership
  11. 11. ownership
  12. 12. uncertainty inaccuracy of physical sensing and the ambiguity of references complex and dynamic technical problems related to bandwidth, power, latency, disconnection, and so forth mismatch between what can be sensed and what is expected create uncertainty
  13. 13. unpredictability
  14. 14. cultural bias
  15. 15. seamful design revealing the “seams” (limits, boundaries, uncertainty) embraces the messiness of everyday life know when to reveal or hide the imperfections Chalmers, M., and Galani, A. Seamful interweaving: heterogeneity in the theory and design of interactive systems. In DIS ’04: Proceedings of the 2004 conference on Designing interactive systems (New York, NY, USA, 2004), ACM Press, pp. 243–252.
  16. 16. seamfulness
  17. 17. seamfulness picture: Ti.mo
  18. 18. design for appropriation co-evolution with technologies is about accommodation and appropriation we play with noise and disorder. It is what allow us to be in command users as actors, not as passive recipients configure, adapt and customize technologies appropriation not only by simplification
  19. 19. conclusions seamlessness is the exception messiness and limits cannot be ignored design technologies with that in mind same errors as strong AI? do we really want to live in a calm world?
