Predicting the Past: Emotional Design and a Vision for Microsoft Surface
A new inflection point in human-computer interaction is upon us. Along with other technologies, Microsoft Surface marks a departure from graphical user interface or GUI into the world of Natural User Interface or NUI. This talk begins with discussion of emotional design and its importance in the future of society. The lens shifts to how one design team is thinking about designing for a new era in which emotional intent and intuitive interaction are the imperative. Using theoretical models drawn from a mix of history, science, philosophy, and even video game design, this presentation reveals principles behind experience design for Microsoft Surface and beyond.
Technology: Mitch Denny presenting on The Evolution of Enterprise Software Development.
Mitch Denny will be leading a discussion on The Evolution of Enterprise Software Development. Current forces in the industry are challenging our traditional (and even not so traditional) approaches to developing software to meet business requirements. In this session Mitch will introduce one way that he has been approaching some internal systems development problems at Readify and looks how this approach could be used within your organisation to deliver greater business value through technology.
