Designing with Sensors: Creating Adaptive Experiences

30,181

Published on

How do we utilize sensor and user data to create experiences in the digital world? We all know that smart devices have sensors, but how can we use this as a resource to acquire information about the user and his environment? And how can we use this information to design a better user experience that is both unobtrusive and transparent? The simple answer: we create adaptive systems.

Join speaker Avi Itzkovitch to discover core concepts for utilizing smart device technologies and sensor data in order to understand context, and add “adaptive thinking” to the UX professional’s toolset when designing experiences. In his presentation, Avi will demonstrate the importance of understanding context when designing adaptive experiences, give ideas on how to design adaptive systems, and most important, inspire designers to think how smart devices and context-aware applications can enhance the user experience with adaptivity.

  • “Adaptive thinking” is a mindset that provides the tools necessary to significantly improve the user experience and enhance the intended purpose of the product by utilizing the technology that is readily available in every pocket. It is about learning the environment and the user and adapting to their current needs and situation. Therefore, designers should first design for the context of use and then design the set of functions that are triggered in relevant situations.
