Ambient Interfaces

Where we are

Devices and modern interfaces are becoming so cognate that they require less direct action, while doing more for us. 

Where we’re going

Digital Assistants embedded in our audio devices, thermostats, cars and watches will simultaneously captivate our attention and cause minimal friction as they record and observe in the background, ask questions and provide notifications without prompts.

How to think about it

Consider all of your personal data now available to computers (ex: emotion, gesture, location, voice analysis and heart rhythm) and how these can be compared with historical / real-time data sets from other people to deliver more personalized, predictive experiences.
