  • The articles covers the following ideas:
    • Tapping into the user’s mental model
    • Changing digital habits
    • Creating the hook (hook model: trigger, action, reward, investment)
    • Designing for irrationalities
    • A positive reinforcement/sustainable behaviour change

Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs)
  • Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are interfaces for recording and processing neurological data and turning these data into an output.
  • Neurodata can be directly recorded, e.g., by a BCI, or indirectly recorded, e.g., an individual’s spinal cord.
  • There are particular privacy risks associated with BCIs that might need the following solutions:
    1. Encryption
    2. Local-first software
    3. Separation of data and compute (or edge computing)
    4. Access control layer
    5. Data cooperative

People’s autonomy is in their capacities not in their impairments. Learn how human-centred helps understand how capacities, capabilities and autonomy interact.

Human-Centered Prototyping Starts With Respect For Human Capacities
  • The authors gives his 3-step human-centered prototype model to understand how capacities, capabilities and autonomy interact:

    • Research Capacities
    • Consider Capabilities
    • Build prototypes
  • Researching capacities leads to recognizing the diversity of solutions that come from personal divergence.

  • Reviewing capabilities means looking at what tools/services/communities/assets work successfully to achieve desired outcomes.

  • While building prototypes, it is important to keep the sense of independence and individuality for users.

Different biases and ways they can produce a positive experience using biases in UX design

Biases and their effects in UX Design
  • The author shares her perspective on the following biases and their effects in UX Design:
    • Motivational biases (the Ego-enhancing bias and The Effective Control bias)
    • Cognitive biases (Salience Availability, Preconceptions, and Anchoring and Perseverance)
  • Biases in UX Design:
    • The Anchoring bias
    • The Framing bias
  • Understanding the psychology of the human mind is vital in creating clean, well organized and user-friendly designs.
