Before the year comes to a close and the holidays kick into gear, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the tech and design events in Boston. This month, designers who are creating podcast-related work will have the chance to get feedback from Thomas Romer, the designer for popular podcasts 99% Invisible and Radiolab, and developers curious about React Native can stop in at the Boston Frontend meetup for an introduction.
In my post on the Digital Healthcare Landscape, I discussed how technology is changing the ways in which the healthcare industry diagnoses, monitors, and treats patients. Today, I’d like to address some of the big challenges and risks involved in the industry, to give a better understanding of why digital transformation in this space can seem like a daunting undertaking for many companies.
Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the Connected Home Summit in Boston, MA. The conference is new to the Boston tech scene, and was held in conjunction with the Deep Learning Summit, which took place in the ballroom next door. The crossover was appropriate, since so much of what’s happening in the connected home space recently has a great deal to do with advanced applications of machine learning.
In our latest webinar, Approachable Home Automation: Designing Intuitive UX for the Febreze Home, we share insights on the design sprint process and how it helped us build a product to complement P&G's home automation device, a smart air freshener called Febreze Home.
