At our Berlin Pre-Work Talk on Tuesday, March 12 we’re welcoming Rèmi Bigot and Oliver Hill of German Autolabs, to investigate how to live a connected life, safely, while on the road and answer our #IXDSCriticalQuestion: How can intelligent VUIs help us interact responsibly with our environment?
Many of us know what it's like sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic with only trashy news, Top 40 pop songs and a whole lot of frustration to keep us company. You want to connect with your boss, your partner, your doctor, to be kept in the loop on the day’s meetings, or their outrage at the latest Brexit revelations. So, we’d hazard a guess that at one time or another, you’ve pulled out your smartphone and let it rest just below the dashboard; which yes, is an offence but incredibly Handy!
The team at German Autolabs understands our collective frustration and in response, developed a digital assistant that will make any driver’s access to apps and services safer, legal and much more convenient. Their conversational interface is Chris, your connection to the world outside your vehicle. Using voice and natural gesture control technology, Chris is a Voice User Interface (VUI) that’ll keep you in touch responsibly, while you’re on the go.
As two of the designers behind Chris, Rèmi Bigot and Oliver Hill will take us through Chris’ development journey – from tools, to methods and prototyping – and share what they've learned while creating an engaging and intelligent service, that satisfies a specific need for hands free interaction.
Come by at 8:30am for your morning cup of joe; our speakers will begin at 9am! We look forward to seeing you at our studio on Paul-Lincke-Ufer 39/40.
