Assistive Augmentation, Jochen Huber
Our senses are the dominant channel for perceiving the world around us, some more central than the others, such as the sense of vision. Whether they have impairments or not, people often find themselves at the edge of sensorial capability and seek assistive or enhancing devices. We wish to put sensorial ability and disability on a continuum of usability for certain technology, rather than treat one or the other extreme as the focus. Central to this line of thinking is the design and development of assistive technology, user interfaces and interactions that seamlessly integrate with a user's mind, body and behavior, providing an enhanced perception. We call this "Assistive Augmentation".
Designing work-products for non-designers, Andreas Schrafl
Working as a user experience designer means learning from the user, with the user. To do so we have to analyze the target group, design an experience and test it with the target group. This process is known to everybody as User Centered Design and is well documented in the ISO standard 9241-210:2010 - Human-centered design for interactive systems.
Anschliessend wie immer Znacht in Jimmy's Pizzeria!
