Home Automation is an EasyHard problem

Speaker:  Scott Jenson – Mountain View, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


It's so easy to fall into the trap that the internet of things 'just works'. This lecture shows how even something as simple as turning on a light can filled with UX distasters. It's important when designing for home automation to understand the many pitfalls that can occur. This lecture dives into these issues and discusses ways in which to solve them. However, what is even more likely to happen is that the very definition of what 'a light source' is wil change as the technology evolves. We can't just design for yesterday but be ready for tomorrow. Further examples of likely product types and how they should be designed will be also covered.
