We’re talking design and data with Microsoft Garage’s Envisoneer and Design Lead, Mike Pell. Following on from his first book, ‘Envisioning Holograms’, Pell has just released his second book called ‘The Age of Smart Information’ that envisions how AI and XR will fundamentally change the nature of information and our relationship with it. We discuss everything from ditching the over-complicated ’36-step’ human centred design process, forgoing the faceless word of ‘user’, to how information will evolve from dead pixels on a page to a new way to learn, be inspired and informed by data.
