The technology we are developing doesn’t know how we feel, if we have a good or a bad day. As technology becomes deeply integrated into every aspect of our daily lives, people expect more emotionally intelligent interactions. A future with feelings is as vital to our well-being as it is to business success. Pamela Pavliscak, Founder at Change Sciences, will show you how to prototype emotionally intelligent technology in a hands-on session. You’ll explore new ways to design with feeling including techniques to understand emotion in greater depth, patterns that cultivate an emotionally sustainable relationship, and how to shape bot personalities that are emotionally intelligent (and when not to).
For designers, developers, and anyone who cares about crafting a better emotional experience with technology.
Pamela is founder of Change Sciences, a future insights firm that works with Google, IKEA, Virgin and a plethora of visionary organizations. She's faculty at Pratt Institute where she teaches the next generation of designers. Pamela’s work has appeared in The New York Times, Slate, and Quartz and she’s spoken at SXSW, TEDx, TNW, and Web Summit among many others. Designing for happiness, a how-to on humanity-centered design, is forthcoming from O’Reilly in 2018. Pamela's currently researching the future of feelings for her next book on empathetic artificial intelligence.
