Chris’s talk, It’s Not the Technology, It’s the Experience, on January 11th, focused on the importance of research to drive decisions about an IoT product’s end-to-end experience.
A good research effort tells you whether the device you’re designing should be connected in the first place. Insights from research help a design team make careful decisions early on about what experience an IoT device should provide, and then see it through to execution. Chris focused on specific IoT design challenges, including ease of setup, ease of use, privacy, and security.
