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.

  • Nest, The Learning Thermostat, is a great example of an adaptive system integrated to home environments. Using a variety of sensors for temperature, humidity, touch, near-field activity, far-field activity and even ambient light, it can detect whether there are people home and how active the home is at any time. By adjusting the temperature to adapt to this information, it can automatically cut up to 20% off a home’s heating and cooling bills.
  • When no one is around, Nest learns to turn the heat down. When you come home from work, it knows that the heat should go back up. After the first few weeks, it learns when you come home from work and can turn the heat up before you arrive so that you come home to a warm house.

  • These markers can be used to allow better customization of interfaces to user needs, and specifically to the needs of users with relevant health conditions. הפרעת קשב
  • The Broadcom chip supports IPS through WiFi, Bluetooth, and even NFC. More importantly, though, the chip also ties in with other sensors, such as a phone’s gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, and altimeter. Acting like a glorified pedometer, this Broadcom chip could almost track your movements without wireless network triangulation. It simply has to take note of your entry point (via GPS), and then count your steps (accelerometer), direction (gyroscope), and altitude (altimeter).
  • Moves is an automatic diary of your life. Your daily storyline and maps show where, when and how much you move.
  • The technology that the company developed performs psychosocial analysis on social networks users and builds characters (archetypes) from it, on the basis of significant personality components, as defined in psychiatry. Based on that analysis, the ad networks turn to the users with a message that is tailored to their personality and thus enjoy a significant improvement on CTR for those ads.Accurately profiles a user's personality through real-time human interactions which occur within any given social platform.Tracks more than 300 different behavioral parameters of users' social interactions.The algorithm is language independent, and does not rely on semantic analysis or keywords mapping.Solid results - with 3+ years of research and with Millions of users, Sensegon holds a proven psychological analysis technology that exposes the "real" human consumer archetypes.
  • “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.

  • Here is an instructive case where adaptive thinking was used to create a mobile application for a bike sharing program. Bicycle sharing systems, also known as bike rental, are becoming more and more common in major cities around the world. Bicycle sharing helps reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, and encourages local residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • A user who wants to rent a bike can use a mobile application to look for the nearest bike rental station that has bikes available to rent. If the user is unfamiliar with the city, they can use the application to get directions to the rental station; this is the core functionality of the application.
  • An adaptive system will realize when the user has arrived at the bike rental station and automatically offer additional options, i.e., adapt to the current situation. For example, it may offer the user a quick way to rent a bike, a feature that was not available in the application before arriving at the rental station. During the rental period, the system will anticipate the user’s needs and offer nearby bike rental stations with available parking spots where the bike can be returned, and show the user the current balance for the rental time.
