Designing the cognitive future (part I) | ACM Interactions. Authors:Juan Pablo HourcadePosted: Tue, March 05, 2013 - 11:26:08 We are designing the cognitive future and most of the time we don’t even realize it. We are changing the way cognitive processes work in people who use the technologies we design, from perception to memory, attention, learning, communication, and social cognition. In fact, we may be seeing the beginnings of one of the largest shifts in cognition brought about by technology, perhaps even bigger than the changes brought by handwriting and mathematical notation. The problem is that we have largely been reactive. For the most part, we design the next novel technology that the research market calls for without a holistic view of how all these technologies will affect how we think and how we interact with each other. The good news is that we have choices. To get things started, let’s think about perception.
The above ideas have at best a neutral feel and can even feel creepy. That is my (beginning of a) vision. Philosophy of Interaction. CUBI UX - User Experience Model. ¿Qué es UX?...y...¿qué no es UX? El fundamento para crear este post es que navegando por internet se pueden encontrar muchas definiciones de UX y no todas son válidas ni correctas, por lo que me gustaría compartir mi punto de vista acerca de ello. Además también ofrezco unas lecturas recomendadas y una pequeña introducción al proceso de diseño de experiencia de usuario, que en próximas entradas entraré a un nivel más profundo.
Sin más, vamos a ver ¿qué es ux? ¿Qué es UX? Actualmente el término UX es referido de diferentes maneras y en diferentes contextos, aunque las diferentes definiciones que se dan tienen puntos en común no suelen definir completamente todo lo que engloba el término UX. A cotinuación y después de ver distintas definiciones y haber leído diferentes opiniones y artículos acerca de UX, he llegado a mi propia conclusión de qué es UX y quiero compartirla con vosotros.

People give plenty of blah blah blah to failing these days, but I’ve met very few who have committed to it as completely as I have. I’ve been creating digital products for nearly two decades and I have screwed things up in just about every way things could be screwed up. So what follows isn’t some academic treatise; this is a practical list with scars nestled under each of its five heuristics. Follow my advice and you will deliver design work of significance and influence.
It has been my experience that striving to do these five things well can transform an organization’s approach to design without the tedium and frustration of ideological debate. 1. Separate The What from The How Design is problem solving; the key to solving problems is to first clearly define them. The designer must disentangle that mess, first for herself, and then, as best as she can, for others. 2. 3.
If you treat design as a tactical activity, you severely limit the size of the problems it can address. 4. 5. Design UX / UI. UX: Psychology of great design – part 1. The World Wide Web turned 20 in April 2013. In its first 20 years the web matured from a largely static medium into the rich, collaborative and wonderfully interactive medium we know today. As such, the interactions and relationships between users and systems have become increasingly complex. Consequently, web designers need to understand the experience of the website or app they are making.
Designers should consider who is using it, what they need to do and ultimately if the design makes their users’ experience easier or, ideally, more delightful. Essentially, this is what user experience (often abbreviated to UX) is focused upon: studying how a person reacts or feels when using a product or service and how this experience can be improved. The term ‘user experience’ was originally coined by Don Norman while he was Vice President of the Advanced Technology Group at Apple: “I invented the term because I thought human interface and usability were too narrow. > Why is it being made?

Information Architecture, according to Wikipedia, is “the art and science of organizing and labelling websites … to support usability.“ According to the same source, User Experience is “the way a person feels about using a product, system or service. Even with regards to its definition, User Experience takes Information Architecture as its foundation and brings it to the next level.

Deborah’s speech inspired me so much that I then realized UX is wrongfully associated with the “UI”. It should be declared as a crime and cops should issue a ticket when someone says “UX/UI”. IT IS NOT ACCURATE. It is like “Father/Son”. Where father is never been equal to his son. And then I wrote the following blog post after hearing Deborah’s speech. At that time I do not have any “sketching” experience, and it is not hard to learn, anyone can sketch if they know how to sketch the circle, triangle, square, rectangle and squiggly lines.

Hace unas cuantas décadas el concepto ‘experiencia’ se hubiera asociado a ungüentos milagrosos, espectáculos circenses o viajes a otra dimensión.

Se ha convertido en un factor decisivo de nuestros movimientos on line, de muchas decisiones de compra y en un maravilloso vehículo para la comercialización y exposición de productos.
El uso y el consumo de dichos productos se traduce en una experiencia vivida por parte de usuarios que no solo buscan la última tecnología o la solución mas ajustada de precio. Buscan aquello que se adecue a las tareas que quieren realizar, sin dificultades, sin trampas ni falsas promesas y manteniendo el control en cada toma de decisiones. ¿Cómo definir algo así?
