  • Designing for Somaesthetics
    In designing for bodily experiences, there has been a lack of theories that can provide the underpinnings we need to understand and deepen our design thinking. Despite all the work we have seen on...
  • The Mobile Life? An enjoyment society
    The Mobile Life Centre, started in 2007, has grown to be about 45 researchers, exploring experiential, leisure and playful mobile and ubiquitous interactions. We do serious research on what we...
  • What is design knowledge?
    Research through design (RtD) aims at bringing out design knowledge in different forms: both the ultimate particulars (specific designs used in specific contexts) as well as more generic...

Anis Koubaa – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Perry Victor Lea – Boise, ID, United States

  • Computer Architecture Flops and Failures
    During this conversation, we will discuss computer flops.  Not necessarily floating-point operations per second, but failures and pitfalls that have served the computer industry for...
  • Fog Computing and the 20% Rule
    Fog computing is the extension of the cloud to the edge of compute.  As the world grows to 50 billion connected objects, certain laws of physics preside that need to be discussed.  Fog...
