Qasim Week 10

Computer systems are a complex integral of how communicate with our devices. We also call the complexity of these systems a blackbox, that is a system that continues to be decoded through many layers and redefining and conceptualizing language and human interaction. Especially communicating with these devices we interact with it on multiple spectrums. For one, visually. Is the content on the screen appealing and are we able to internalize it? This come with User Interface and User Design methods. We also have audio forms that make it easier for us to connect better. Specifically, Siri and Alexa are actors in being the liaison between the computer and human on a much more personalized level. These systems (Siri) are so complex we are seeing the evolution in how it communicates with us. The voice is more human and they use more casual lingo and are sometimes, a bit smart.

The transferrable data in how socialization and data socialization. As we remediate the representation of images we also are learning how to do so digitally. Computing needs to be a medium that needs to be conceptualized through accessible data whether it is imagery, audio, and for some people, touch. Data types combine together into one interface is efficient and not just complex in the programming, but how it appeals to us aesthetically.

Brad Meyers delves into other ways how we will communicate with computers and one that struck me was “gesture recognition”. With this in place, we can broaden the users who use computers much more broadly. The human intention applied into interface and user design in how we are becoming more creative with these systems. Other ways Meyers believes will be modes of how we communicate with computers and ways we do, include; multimedia, three-dimensionality, computer-supported work. Imagining these systems feels so far fetched and are hard to think of when we have become so accustomed to what we use now. It almost feels like imagining a new color.
