User Experience SIG Event
‘Context Awareness as the Digital Sixth Sense: The User Experience Challenge’
Billions of connected devices, input from multiple sensors, and sophisticated new software are at last making the long promised context awareness concept a reality. This “digital sixth sense” is beginning to enable portable devices to learn to predict the user’s needs in real-time, even without a specific request from the user. Although such capabilities are expected to bring great benefits to peoples' daily lives, the user experience provided by this new form of mediated interaction between users and devices will take time to evolve so that users are truly comfortable with it. Confirmed speakers are Peter Whale of Qualcomm, Rachel Jones of Instrata and Vuokko Lantz of Nokia Research Centre, Espoo (Finland). In addition, confirmed speakers for the 'Bring & Share' session are Dominic Pullen from Orange, Vaiva Kalnikaite from Dovetailed, Ken Blakeslee from WebMobility Ventures and Geoff McCormick from Alloy.
This half day event will explore the challenges, opportunities and potential pitfalls we face with the help of experts in mobile technologies and the “Internet of Things”. more..
