Ideo’s AI Machines Explore A Future We May Or May Not Want Talk of artificial intelligence is often wrapped in confusion or paranoia or both. You know, like: “How are Russian hackers manipulating Facebook’s news algorithm to subvert democracy?” The hodgepodge of clever computing technologies has been baffling interface designers, too, as they try to figure out how to make AI genuinely useful but not overwhelming, or menacing. To grapple with the challenge, design firm Ideo built five single-purpose AI machines that explore ways technology can help people sort their thoughts, plan for the future, and even communicate better with each other. Jure Martinec, senior interaction designer at Ideo’s Munich office, lead an effort to get a conversation going with clients through a private exhibit of the gadgets, called Hyper Human. Ideo made a big bet on AI when it purchased Chicago-based data-science firm Datascope in October 2017, and Hyper Human was an opportunity to show off its AI chops to clients.

GetCache - A Chrome plugin to view cached version of the current page - Sadique Ali Download the plugin here On numerous occasions, I have ran in to the situation where I had to look up how to load Google’s cached version of a particular page. This happens often when I follow a link from Hacker News or Reddit to a blog post and the blog has went down due to the great avalanche of traffic from HN and Reddit. After struggling to remember and having to Google how to get the cached version, I decided to finally solve this issue. I wrote GetCache, a dead simple Google Chrome plugin that loads Google’s cached version of the current page. Installing

Cached link - Web Search Help When you click Cached, you'll see the webpage as it looked when Google last visited the page. About Cached Links Google crawls the web and takes snapshots of each page as a backup in case the current page is not available. These pages then become part of Google’s “cache.” If you click on a link that says Cached, you’ll see the previous version of the site that we have stored. Where to find Cached Links Behind the scenes of Oscar Health’s design system Oscar Health is a tech-driven insurance company that interacts with a wide range of users and stakeholders. Oscar builds digital tools for our members, providers, brokers, employers, and our own internal employees. As a small design team, designing each of these digital experiences in parallel can be a challenge, but our continued investment in our own design system, Anatomy, has helped us rise to meet these challenges. For those not familiar, a design system defines a brand’s core UI/UX. This includes everything from typography, to form fields, to entire page layouts. We based our approach on Atomic Design, a principle that describes the smallest of UI elements or components as atoms (e.g., text, color, or spacing) and increasingly larger components as molecules composed of atoms (e.g., a text input, a button, or a modal).

Overview of Wine What Is Wine? Wine is an implementation of the Windows API running on Unix. You can think of Wine as a translator between the application and the operating system. When a Windows software says it needs a dialog box, it talks to Wine. Wine then talks to whatever OS it is running on and says, "Give this application a dialog box."

Creating custom dashboards for CX data — a UX case study Project Kickoff When jumping into a fun project like this, it can be agonizing not to open your preferred design tool and start throwing concepts together. I’ve certainly been guilty of getting into the details too early. Over time I’ve learned to restrain, at all costs, especially when it comes to the more conceptual, less formalized and pliable ideas. Once you have established designs (especially ones in high fidelity) it’s hard to backtrack and shift away from what you already have. Also, when showing other team members your early ideas in a very polished format there is a chance it is perceived as more refined and finalized than it actually is, thus impacting the feedback you receive. The best way to use Gmail and Google Calendar on your iPhone Android users can take advantage of Google’s major services right out of the box, but setting Gmail, Google Contacts, and Google Calendar up on your iPhone isn’t quite so clear. It’s worth doing right, though: with a little elbow grease you can have a setup that’s every bit as good. It’ll let you use the new Gmail app, which is a big improvement over the iPhone’s standard mail app and most other third-party options, and you’ll also get a better, simpler calendar and contacts setup — goodbye, weird duplicated events and endless birthday notifications. Plus, we’d swear that our battery life got a lot better as soon as we left Exchange and turned to our new setup. The trick here is combining the Gmail app with two syncing protocols called CardDAV and CalDAV (don’t worry, you’ll never actually need to know what these are to get them to work).
