Context, multi-​​device and the future of TV in the browser — video presentation by Rod Farmer

Broadcast TV is dead. Long live TV! Despite declining numbers in broadcast TV viewership, consumption of TV Shows and online video is growing faster than ever before. With every Network and their dog madly rushing to provide a second screen experience via native applications, few compelling cross-platform TV experiences exist on the web. Beyond technical considerations, supporting continuous experiences across channels and devices is a complex and fascinating (mobile) user experience problem.

The best interface is no interface — video presentation from Golden Krishna

Many believe the future of design is in screens. They're wrong. Our love for the digital interface is out of control. This conversation, led by Golden Krishna, will explore a better path: NoUI. Eliminating counterintuitive input mechanisms for natural inputs inverts the contemporary focus of software design to have computers adapt for people, rather than people adapt for computers. The results can have a profound impact on your design process and our lives.

How the internet of things changes how we design — video presentation from Alexandra Deschamps-​​Sonsino

Designing a connected product requires strategic thinking that design professionals have not had to develop in an industrial context. It distrupts not only entire industries but the way professionals are shaped for those industries. I'll talk about the process of developing and designing connected products and the sets of skills, semantics, and collaborative practitces that are essential in this context.

Connected UX — video presentation by Aarron Walter

Though design research has become common practice at product companies, it often produces insights that slip into the hazy distance as documents get lost on a hard drive, or ignored by someone in a different department. Worse still, efforts get duplicated when communication breaks down.
UX teams have design research down to a science, but few have discovered a way to connect qualitative and quantitative data, and long histories of research into a central clearinghouse that can be shared, searched, and maintained by different teams. Open access to information strengthens the connections between teams, and supports a general culture of inquiry. In this talk, Aarron shares with you practical methods to get off the research treadmill and get started building connections between data and teams.

Beyond Mobile, Beyond Web — video presentation by Scott Jenson

As the cost of computation and connectivity plummets, manufacturers are going to put 'interactivity' into every device. What does this mean for us as designers and curators of experiences? This talk discusses how the principles of the open web must apply not only to prototocols but to hardware as well. How can we make sure the menagerie of devices has a chance for working together?

Deep Interaction — a video presentation by Karl Fast

Deep interaction is the idea that interaction is an integral part of human thinking. It's how we make meaning, develop understanding, and create insight. Interaction is more than clicking pixels and sliding fingers over glass.
This talk explores what deep interaction means for designing the digital future.

The Weight of the Web — video presentation from David Demaree

In this talk David Demaree, Developer and Product Manager at Typekit considers the web as a physical medium, constrained by bandwidth and device capabilities. He also looks at the web as an adaptive medium, where our work can consist not only of pixels and words, but also metadata and instructions for displaying content across all kinds of devices.

People, not users — video presentation from Rachel Binx

In this keynote from Web Directions South 2013, Rachel Binx argues for a more human-centric approach to designing web experiences.

Radiation-​​free responsive experiences — video presentation from Andrew Fisher

A responsive experience may take place in part in the browser, but it extends well beyond media queries and image sets. This talk focuses on how data as a material and data as tooling in the design process can shape deeply engaging and responsive experiences, that even go offline.
