The Well-Behaved Object: Design Principles for the Next Generation
There's no question that the products we make in the near future will grow cheaper and smarter – which means more intelligence in more places. How much will our existing attitudes about interaction design apply in this new era of diverse, connected, intelligent devices? Are there new boundaries we need to set to maintain our privacy and our peace of mind? "The Well-Behaved Object" is a way of thinking about the relationship between us and the objects around us that augment our experience – and what it takes for the objects we use to be not just “intelligent”, but valuable, empowering, and meaningful.
About JeremyJeremy Bowen loves the challenge of creating meaningful experiences of all kinds – whether it’s through an operating system, an app, a book, a typeface, an exhibit, or music. In his time at Microsoft, he's helped craft experiences ranging from natural-language interactions with Cortana, adaptive multi-device shells in Windows, exploring possibilities in the "Internet of Things", and collaborating with the Surface hardware design team on creating new products. Jeremy is currently the Creative Director for Microsoft Teams, a new communication and collaboration app for Office that aims to make teamwork more natural, expressive, and human.
