Designing the future


Published on

Design thinking for next dacade will center around three interesting paradigms. Specially as lot of information will be emitted by various devices and the complexity increases, we need to evolve a way to simplify the complex. This talk given at IIT Kanpur, attempts to figure out how we would be designing simpler intelligent interfaces.

Designing the future

  1. 1. thinking for new paradigms Umakant Soni CEO Vimagino usoni@vimagino.comFriday 20 May 2011
  2. 2. Last decade 2000-2010 saw information explosion aswe create avenues and devices which can capture and share informationFriday 20 May 2011
  3. 3. Every 2 days, we create as much data as we did till 2003 - Eric Schmidt, CEO GoogleFriday 20 May 2011
  4. 4. This decade 2010-2020 is going to be about how to leverage these data points to make decision. However, given the enormous amount of data sets, therein lies the challenge and opportunityFriday 20 May 2011
  5. 5. We need new dimension to design effectively, things that can take advantage of these data setsFriday 20 May 2011
  6. 6. Some of the important pathways are...Friday 20 May 2011
  7. 7. 1 design for intentions 2 design for Meaning 3 design for ignoranceFriday 20 May 2011
  8. 8. 1 design for intentions Intension are the newer depth, which allow us to don different lenses to look at the same things. Idea is that, things should shape, respond and behave differently based on what you are looking at them with.Friday 20 May 2011
  9. 9. Driven by personal choices Extreme personalization *Picture Source : a design blog whose link I have forgottenFriday 20 May 2011
  10. 10. Intention drives information Different views of information *Picture Source : a design blog whose link I have forgottenFriday 20 May 2011
  11. 11. Context driven help Intention interact with ENVIRONMENT *Picture Source : a design blog whose link I have forgottenFriday 20 May 2011
  12. 12. 2 design for meaning Meaning adds another layer to the data underneath it. It simplifies things, allows for looking at bigger picture.Friday 20 May 2011
  13. 13. Semantic tags for meanings Designing from Meaning in ENVIRONMENT *Picture Source : a design blog whose link I have forgottenFriday 20 May 2011
  14. 14. LEARNING is from ENVIRONMENT Location specific learning *Picture Source : a design blog whose link I have forgottenFriday 20 May 2011
  15. 15. 3 design for IGNORANCE Till so far, we have been designing for knowledge. All our systems are designed with a knowledge set at its heart. However they dont actually become intelligent, since being intelligent is about dealing with unknown.Friday 20 May 2011
  16. 16. ZeroFriday 20 May 2011
  17. 17. How are we at Vimagino applying these three pathways to future ?Friday 20 May 2011
  18. 18. We are building intelligent agents, which are capable of helping in certain areas. These intelligent agents gets bootstrapped with data, but they learn all their life. Their directive is to resolve the complex into simple.Friday 20 May 2011
  19. 19. What they need to do ?Friday 20 May 2011
  20. 20. Automated intelligent agents, capable of bridging complexity in Need I devices to simpler human interfaces Enable machines to understand human intent by creating behavior trails 2 Find rich meaning in interaction and use it to enrich the conversation 3 Handle situation never encountered beforeFriday 20 May 2011
  21. 21. How things would appearFriday 20 May 2011
  22. 22. automated agents embedded in the devices makes interactive choices based on user inputs Voice interactive automated agents embedded in TV, searches and pulls out content pays on behalf of you and voila...You are sitting bored and wish towatch a tennis match, 2008 finalbetween nadal and federer...Friday 20 May 2011
  23. 23. automated agents embedded in the devices remove the need for training and ensure correct usage Automated agents embedded in the display monitors speak out abnormal patterns Automated agents embedded inside the imaging device guide the medical investigator into setting up device properly... Automated agents embedded in the device instruct patient to adopt proper posture...Friday 20 May 2011
  24. 24. Automated agents will help people navigate and trouble shoot complex devices with ease, by understanding their questions and responding accordingly Automated agent embedded in the user interface will help people wash their cloths taking into accounts their personal choices Automated agent would help users Automated agent would help older clear out the paper stuck inside the people set up their home theaters printer, without pushing those without the help of a human and complicated buttons in order.. without going through 300+ pages manualFriday 20 May 2011
  25. 25. Lets think about tomorrow...Friday 20 May 2011
