TITLE: UX Research Design in Practice: Some Examples from Safety Critical Industrial Environments
WHEN: Wednesday 4 May, 14:15-15:00
WHERE: MediaFutures and Zoom:
A typical user experience (UX) research and design process is a sequence of user empathization, problem definition, solution ideation, designing, and evaluation. However, how this sequence is executed in practice can have several variants, heavily depending on the resources and the constraints of the environment where the UX work is performed. In this talk, we will explore some exemplary UX research and design projects targeting manufacturing plants, which are examples of safety critical industrial environments. The talk will highlight some particular contextual constraints in this kind of environment and then present how UX practitioners flexibly applied the typical design process to comply with the constraints while still adequately ensuring the quality of a user-centered design work. Besides that, the talk will also demonstrate how different types of creative media such as storyboard, paper-sketched user interfaces, animated mockups, and games can be flexibly used in industrial UX research and design projects.
Dr. Duy Le is currently a senior research scientist and head of the human-computer interaction division of SELab, VNUHCM University of Science, Vietnam. He is an HCI researcher with rich working experiences both in academia and industry. He obtained a PhD degree in human-computer interaction from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. Prior to joining VNUHCM University of Science, he had two years working as a research scientist in the UX research group of ABB Research Sweden where he performed several UX research projects spanning across human-robot interaction, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and human-automation interaction. In his current position, Duy is leading research on intelligent interactive systems, which aim to combine user-centered design, artificial intelligence and cutting edge interactive technologies such as interactive surfaces, AR, VR, and embodied interfaces to improve user efficacy and provide novel experiences.
