Example text

Unlike an oven or a teapot, it makes use of visual feedback on screens instead of tones or other audio-based alerts, making it difficult to do other things at the same time. We take for granted that you can set an oven to preheat and then walk away, but imagine if you had to stare at it the entire time! A lot of our connected technology doesn’t “just work” right out of the box, despite the advances we’ve made in recent decades. It must first be hooked up to a network or Bluetooth. It may need an update before it even starts, and then additional updates almost continually, each requiring you to break from your task or retrieve pieces of information, and often changing the user interface without your permission or knowledge, forcing you to relearn the application all over again.

Google doesn’t determine the best result for us, but it does give us a series of results we can choose from, prioritized by their importance to other humans. From a given list of results, we can then understand which ones best pertain to our problem. The bots themselves only index human knowledge and help with the search results; they do not choose the result for us. † The lesson for designers and engineers is to focus on optimizing your technology so that it amplifies the tasks that humans are better at that machines; tasks like curation, working with context, understanding, being flexible, and improvisation.

Does it require the user’s whole attention, or can you get it across with a lower resolution alert type? Driving is a prime example of this principle in action. Over many decades, we’ve evolved the car driver’s environment into a complex, multisensory, largely peripheral interface. Honks are sound; the vehicle moving forward is something we feel, as are the pedals we use with our feet, without having to look at them. We see lights turn red or green, or stop signs and other road signs right in front of us because they are the punctuation of traffic and require our attention.
