Modern Interface Development

If you’re curious as to how the psychological and philosophical paradigms postulated by thinkers in the 1980s have greatly contributed to modern, systematic interface development, this is the webinar for you.

Find out how to improve iterative, automated testing routines with human intervention to increase the speed of development. Testers are led to believe that they are interacting with software functions, such as language processing. In reality, the functional features are being simulated by humans to rapidly fine-tune the interface.

This testing method is particularly effective for voice interfaces, because test supervisors can easily simulate and adapt machine responses and intuitively interpret test candidate inputs which might otherwise be misinterpreted by the interface itself, resulting in system failure.

Webinar overview

The moderators start with a humorous, anecdotal historic background of the two theories revolving around Chinese Rooms and the Wizard of OZ.

Subsequently, they build the bridge to modern interface development.

Participants can learn first-hand and interactively about the challenges and solutions to successful interface design and testing – based on principles over forty years old.
