Anticipatory Design challenges our relationship with technology

08 June 2018 – Rotterdam

Design has always been crucial in the experience of a product or service. Design affects how we see, feel and think about things. With the dawn of fully automated consumer-facing systems, new guiding principles are desired since future designers will face much more responsibility concerning topics like privacy and data.

How Anticipatory Design Will Challenge Our Relationship with Technology

User Interfaces increasingly take different forms (e.g. voice-driven interfaces) that require a different way of design thinking. Current sets of design principles are insufficient for automation because principles regarding transparency, controls and privacy are missing. Anticipatory Design is a design pattern that moves around learning, predicting and anticipation.

Joël van Bodegraven is a UX Designer and Hyper Island Alumnus with a passion for technology and design. He did a Masters in Digital Experience Design and did research on machine learning-based predictive experiences and anticipatory design. Joël is currently working as Product Designer at TravelBird and is also the Founder of the Anticipatory Design Foundation and Movement.
