The Emotional Life of Internet Things
U. Michigan - North Quad (Ann Arbor)

After much ado, the Michigan User Experience Professionals Association is back! And we're kicking things off with Pamela Pavliscak on Monday, July 10th in Ann Arbor. Join us to learn more about the local chapter of UXPA International and give input on what you need to advance your career in UX.

  • What: Michigan UXPA presentation of "The Emotional Life of Internet Things" by Pamela Pavliscak
  • When: Monday, July 10, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
  • Where: U. of Michigan, North Quad, Room 2245, Ann Arbor
  • Why: Kicking off a revitalized UXPA chapter in Michigan (also serving the Toledo region)

The Emotional Life of Internet Things: The technology we use every day knows a lot about what we do: what we click on, where we go, who we follow. But so far, it doesn't know much about how we feel. That's changing. What will it be like when our internet things know how we feel? Let’s invent emotional machines for the human future we want.

Midwest UX (Cincinnati)
through

On Oct. 12-14, 2017, Cincinnati will host the seventh annual Midwest UX Conference. The regional conference celebrates the growing practice of user experience design, and since its inception in 2011, has been held in Columbus, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Louisville and Pittsburgh.

“The conference is a reflection of the host city and the UX community within it,” said Jessica Schomaker, Cincinnati MWUX chair. “It’s really refreshing to get to go to all of these cities and see the UX communities there.”

The three-day event will feature hands-on workshops, keynote speakers, city excursions and networking events. Keynotes will be held at Memorial Hall, workshops will be at Cintrifuse and other locations in Over-the-Rhine and the closing party will be held at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Day one of the conference is workshop-based. Attendees will be able to go into the sessions and meet with international industry leaders who will teach skills needed for UX design. Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It's a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing,” Jessica Schomaker.

“I moved here not too long ago and took a UX job,” Schomaker said. “The UX community in Cincinnati is remarkable, and the quality of people and conversations I’ve had are remarkable. It would be surprising to people outside of the Midwest that these conversations and groups are here because the perception is that good design happens on the coast. But good design is happening in the Midwest too.”

She feels that with the renaissance of OTR and downtown, Cincinnati is in the middle of redefining itself. “It’s a reflection of what UX does — it improves user experience, just like Cincinnati is doing.”

The Midwest UX Conference is entirely volunteer-based. With each new host city, new conference chairs are chosen from the local UX community, which allows each city to put on the best conference possible for the region.

“We get to highlight things that are happening in the city and highlight our favorite places,” Schomaker said.
