Man-Made Humans: Deconstructing UX to humanise the emerging technologies

In this new era of technological advancement, where we just don’t touch screens to command apps but also talk to our devices to make things work. Though that’s very exciting but these technologies are meaningless if they aren’t humanized to build trust and relation with the consumer. Some of the large innovative companies who have advanced in AI & Robotics have already started thinking as a digital humanist and believing that technology is truly effective only when it allows people to accomplish things they didn’t know they could. Hence designers working on emerging technology should have the ability to apply basic human psychology and design from a place of empathy and humility.

This imposes new ways and standards to design human interactions. In this session, we will learn about the new opportunities taking shapes for UX designers to get prepared and address the challenges in humanizing the user experience for the emerging technologies.
