The Actual-Reality UX of Museum Spaces

Museum organizations are no strangers to the challenges UX Practitioners are now facing in the worlds of virtual and augmented realities. For centuries, museologists in the art world have adopted wide-ranging approaches to displaying visual content and metadata within different environmental contexts and constraints.

The decisions that architects, artists and museums have made to tell stories and communicate information in physical spaces contain lessons we can all learn from, especially as the fields of Information Architecture and User Experience Design exit the safe confines of a browser-based world.

We’ll take journey through the history of museums, while looking at their evolution, and examples of successes, failures and the affects of the ties the bind environments and information.

Conversations in Artificial Intelligence

From autonomous cars and predictive search recommendations to voice-powered assistants like Alexa and Siri, artificial intelligence is poised to dramatically change the way we design products, services and experiences. While still in its infancy, digital product professionals are clamoring to get up to speed on where AI is now, and how they can design for the near future with AI in mind.

How does the design and development process change? What best practices should I be following? What are the biggest pitfalls to avoid? Hear from three perspectives — user experience, design strategy and technology — as our diverse panel of professionals share project stories, personal experiences and tips that illustrate how to meaningfully incorporate AI in your work.
