  1. The Opportunities of Cloud Computing

    February 19, 2018

    There are a number of technological drivers that are affecting the way interaction design is currently evolving. Even more than artificial intelligence and virtual and augmented reality, cloud computing has become the new norm for information technology (IT) in all kinds of companies. What does this mean for interaction designers?

    In this article, I’ll explain what cloud computing is and its four major benefits for designers and users:

    1. Democratized innovation
    2. Seamless, personalized experiences
    3. Native collaboration
    4. Robust user experiences

    I’ll also explain a few common misconceptions about cloud computing, as well some concerns and misconceptions that people have about computing in the cloud. Read More

    Smartware

    The evolution of computing

    February 19, 2018

    In this column on the future of computing, we’ve examined how a handful of advances in technology, including the Internet of Things (IoT); along with sciences of human understanding such as neuroscience and genomics; and emerging delivery platforms such as 3D printers and virtual-reality (VR) headsets will together transform software and hardware into something new that we’re calling smartware.

    Smartware are computing systems that require little active user input, integrate the digital and physical worlds, and continually learn on their own. Now, in this, the final edition of our column on smartware, we’ll consider how the powerful capabilities of smartware will enable new interactions and user experiences that, over time, will become seamlessly integrated into our digital lives.

Salaries for senior UX people are competitive with those of our business colleagues, and most of the roles within the galaxy of User Experience are intellectually challenging and—in the right organization—are generally rewarding and contribute to a fine quality of life.

    However, this comfortable state of affairs is going to change more quickly than we realize. Already, training programs such as General Assembly and Treehouse are flooding the job market with newly minted practitioners of User Experience. This influx of low-priced, albeit inexperienced, talent that is eager to take an entry-level position and get their career started, slows and even reverses wage growth for senior talent, while making jobs increasingly harder to come by.
