AGENDA \ 2017

Day 1 – 29.09.2017


签到 Check in – Getting to know the team


开幕式 Opening Ceremony


欢迎致词 Welcome - Ting Han (Shanghai Jiao Tong University Assoc Dean)

In this talk, I will explain how human evolution has shaped the way how we respond to and interact with media and information technologies in certain ways. After that, I will explain how our understanding of such influences of evolution can be effectively applied to the design of successful ICT (information and communication technologies) products and interfaces. I propose that in order to design innovative IT products, we need to understand and develop the following four things (1. Evolutionary responses to technology form factors; 2. Sensor technologies to understand users; 3. Technologies manifesting machine’s wills and desires; 4. Social interfaces). Examples come from both my academic and industry works spanning from evolutionary psychology to current directions in smart media design by Samsung.

UX的错误会杀人!不能分离安全与报告记录 UX Errors Can Kill People! Safety and Documentation Can not be separated by Klaus Hofer

We all are UX Designers. We do our best, but are there any indicators for success to create an awesome product and win awards? Are there indicators for a better user acceptance? In my speech I will describe how we developed the Dewetron’s NASA product of the year, where we focused on, and what are the key success factors for a great product. We all are able to create successful global products.

I will explain how story and myth are key to defining the human experience and how we can use story to guide the design of anything where human engagement with the product is key. Story can be manifested as subtext, and as narrative. Each informs design choices differently. Story as subtext is where story is developed as a manifesto for use by design teams to coalesce ideas and create unity and focus while not necessarily being 100% obvious to the end user, but has a sub conscience effect. Story as narrative is where the story is front and center in the experience design and unfolds to the user much like a book or movie. I will provide examples of each from projects I’ve worked on around the world.

Day 2 – 30.09.2017 09:00 – 16:00


By teaching some user research methods, including collecting and analyzing user data, the lecture will show a fundamental product development procedure. It focuses especially on extracting the user needs through the user behavior, user interviews. Furthermore, it puts forward the product function positioning not only to meet the needs of users, but also to evaluate the necessity and moderation of the product design. According to this, the product design will achieve beyond the user-centered design.
