IoT design principals

What we want to do evolve design principals that can allow for a common thinking when designing new services, processes and product that recognise the eco-system and not just the Thing.

IoT Design Principals

  • What is device / service for?
  • Where will it be situated?
  • When will it be triggered?
  • What other devices will it be interacting with?
  • Where can it clash?
  • Security?
    • * Lack of security – Shodan
  • Design Principal: “Do No Harm

IoT Design Risks

Context is critical

  • Situational interaction problems for consideration

The following barriers reduce our ability to understand the situation

  • Perception based on faulty information processing
  • Excessive motivation – over motivated to the exclusion of context
  • Complacency
  • Overload
  • Fatigue
  • Poor communications

IoT Design Potential Solutions

Smart application of AI

  • Avatar – smart use of AI, where the users cognitive interface is patterned on their unique cognition pattern through a learning algorithm
  • This avatar should be directional and instructional like digital signage
  • This avatar should respond to the users behavioural interaction and should fall away gracefully as users behaviour becomes more ‘expert
  • In effect it should be a learning system – learns from the users rather than based on rules:
  • For example the AI that George Holz has built into his self-driving car
