Kwan Min Lee

Human Evolution and User Experience

Wednesday, October 11th

14:10 - 15:00

Details

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.
