Designing Socio Digital Experiences

Speaker:  Panos Markopoulos – Eindhoven, Netherlands
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


The experiences emerging from interacting with digital technology need to be understood, designed, and engineered in order to ensure that they provide value to their users, helping them achieve their aspirations and desires.  Rooted in this human-experience centered perspective, we explore ambient intelligence technologies, where computation and communication are embedded in our physical and social environment, adapting to users and their context. The overarching motivation is to create novel socio-digital experiences addressing societal needs, like staying connected with dear ones, children's outdoor play, achieving desirable behavior change, supporting independent living, and rehabilitation. Facing the future, two grand challenges concern us. First is to design technologies that people can shape to meet idiosyncratic and dynamically emerging requirements, putting them in the role of creator and manager of technological solutions and environments. Second, is to understand how people can understand and stay in control of such environments.
