Context Engineering Reality as a Medium
This session will investigate hybrid transformative technologies and techniques that combine the affordances of the analogue with the digital to enable a new era of Hyper Function, Sensory Augmentation and Perceptual Adaptation. As a result of these contextual interventions and augmentations the lenses through which we experience the world are becoming more adjustable than ever.
The newly funded Horizon 2020 project '[WEKIT] Wearable Experience for Knowledge Intensive Training’ http://wekit.eu/ will use the latest in wearable and motion tracking technology to create ‘wearable experience’, an entirely new form of media.
Context Engineering will give us new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, providing us with a new type of self-exploration. In this session we will discuss hybrid transformative technologies to enhance our perception and help us see, hear, and feel our environments in new and enriched ways. The following questions will be explored:
-How adaptable is our perception?
-What is the impact of mnemonics and spatial literacy on memory and cognition.
-What are the biological risks of Context Engineering?
-How can hybrid technological devices, of often- prosthetic alienation, help us to reconnect to ourselves and to the surrounding environment?
-How important is immersion for overcoming and subverting the human condition?
-To what extent can content create context?
-How can we find an appropriate balance in this hybrid environment that pushes but respects the human condition?

User-Centered Service Design Innovations in Healthcare
Since 2014, more money has been invested in digital health than in traditional healthcare.
This is creating a shift in the industry towards more user-centered, democratic and customized processes.
What are the specific needs and constraints of the stakeholders
and how can design help enhance and support this development?

Whether it’s type design, interface, or illustration, Liam spends a lot of his free time continuing to explore design. Outside of that, you can find him behind a camera or writing blog posts.
The Living Interface: Mutative Design
Mutative design is a theoretical design methodology that would allow interfaces and experiences to be born, live, and evolve according to a user’s realities.
With mutative design, things like physical ability, lighting, and vision are accounted for automatically, allowing interfaces to be engaging and accessible to every user, without compromise.
In this session we’ll give a brief overview of the rationale and process behind mutative design and take a look at the first mutative sample app - Selene. We’ll walk through Selene’s first mutations from design and development perspectives, and explore what’s next for mutative design.

Life Without Fragments
What is wrong with Fragments as they are implemented right now? You hear a lot of rage around bugs, issues, and plain bad/obscure APIs. But what alternatives are out there?
Most of the time, Fragments are used as custom Views. But that’s overkill for Fragments, and it’s not what they’re meant for, either: they can do way more than that (and probably shouldn’t). The talk will run through the architectural choices that we found out helped us create great apps without getting lost in Fragment hell. Because #fragmentsmatter, but not more than… [dramatic music mounts to climax, screen fades to black. ""TO BE CONTINUED"" appears on screen]

Escape from Mars: Thank Your Architecture
Everybody involved in a mid size project or bigger is concerned about architecture. We have all been told that a good architecture can help us to have a more agile, robust, and easier to work with application, but it is not always clear how nor the architecture everybody else is talking about. By establishing parallelisms with Andy Weir's story, The Martian, I will go through the most relevant problems we usually find, explain how a well though out architecture can be valuable to us, and share some code that implements it.
I will use Swift in all of the code examples, because, in my opinion, it is very well suited to implement those advanced architectures. I will highlight its advantages and disadvantages compared Objective-C and other languages from an architectural point of view.
If you care:- The talk includes only minor spoilers- No, it isn't about MVC, but beyond that

Connected Houses [hands on]
The workshop will let you explore all IoT tools and build step-by-step a project called ‘The-connected-houses’. This project consists of two parts, a first part will lead you to build a prototype in line with a pre-defined scenario, the second part will allow participants to build additional features which they will define in a so-called ‘Ideation’ session. The workshop is aimed at software developers, hardware makers and innovators.
Great ideas don’t arise from splendid isolation. Structure and creativity combined however, lead to impactful result. During the workshop we will familiarise you with a 7-step methodology to formulate, structure, share and challenge your ideas to evaluate how IoT technologies will strengthen them. Team size will be 2-3 people, typically innovators or designers and the workshop duration is about 4 hours.
IoT Prototyping (Sensors, Computer and prototyping platform)
All participating teams will use an AllThingsTalk Rapid Development Kit. This prototyping tool includes an computer and a set of sensors. Next to the hardware the Kit includes access to AllThingsTalk IoT Prototyping Platform to enable you to quickly connect your devices and develop interaction between them and the Web Services of your choice using the powerful rules wizard included in the platform.
