UXDA Deep Dive: Award Winners | HP Inc
HP Tango Smart Printer Setup Experience – winner of the Product category at the 2021 UX Design Awards

Details

In their presentation, Sogra Nishath, Director of Setup & Onboarding Experience, and Bob Stoss, Design Lead, walk us through the HP Tango Smart Printer Setup Experience project, winner of the 2021 UX Design Award in the Product category.


Tango is HP's first smart home printer. The vision: to deliver a world-class IoT experience for users. The entire customer journey from purchase to setup to use was redesigned to meet the vision. Tango's success is the result of many design disciplines and cross-functional teams working together to align the vision, design, and testing phases through multiple iterations - challenging the status quo at every stage of the design process to reinforce the needs of users and the business.

About the Project: HP Tango Smart Printer Setup Experience

UX Design Award | Product 2021 Winner.

UXDA jury member Werner Spicka on the project: "This product was not designed as a standalone device, but as part of an entire ecosystem. It transforms the printer from a plastic box somewhere on the desk to a beautiful piece of furniture. The focus on sustainability is visible in various touchpoints such as packaging, materials, ink management and more. The concise and beautifully illustrated step-by-step guide to setting up the product focuses on the user and eliminates problems others couldn't solve before."

About the format:

Deep Dive: Award Winners showcases outstanding projects in the professional award categories of Product and Concept. The format - live interactive presentations followed by a Q&A session - offers behind-the-scenes insights into award-winning projects and enables interaction with successful experience design teams.
Moderation: Ake Rudolf, Head of Strategy / Award Director, International Design Zentrum Berlin (IDZ)

Aliado – The cooperative medical AI, "UX Design Award | New Talent" winner 2021
In his presentation, designer Frederic Myers will show us how he co-created his award winning project „Aliado“ with senior physicians and oncologists of the University Clinic Heidelberg and the National Center for Tumor Diseases.

Details

Registration is open right upto the beginning of the event.

Aliado - The cooperative medical AI
The fight against cancer poses an ever-increasing challenge: In their endeavor to find the right treatment physicians are faced with growing amounts of information and legal documentation leaving them little time to spend with their patients.

The cooperative AI system "Aliado" aims to support physicians by structuring medical findings, providing treatment suggestions, and automating parts of the documentation. The special objective within the design of Aliado is to relieve surgeons from repetitive tasks and jobs that involve large amounts of data while helping to pave the way for further clinical AI applications.

UXDA Jury member Werner Spicka about the project:
»By analyzing professional users in this very specific context, the project succeeds in addressing three significant trends and pain points at the same time: complexity in decision making, amount of scattered patient data, and relief of repetitive and time-consuming tasks. The clean and elegant presentation of the relevant information, the intelligent use of supporting micro-interactions, and the workflow-optimized interaction concept help users focus on the main task. However, the jury does see a challenge in making the AI work as envisioned in practice.«

CNBC digital Meetup mit Daniel Gebhardt
Webinar: How to negotiate and build trust with Chinese partners

Details

China is a country of sharp contrasts: Millennia-old traditions, a strong state government, and high technology shape this huge country and its mentalities. Against this background, communicating with Chinese business partners conceals many imponderables. Negotiation situations are shaped not only by linguistic barriers but also by different self-perceptions of cultures. What do you have to consider when negotiating projects? How do you build the necessary trust together?
We are thrilled to announce Daniel Gebhardt, Consultant and Lecturer, answering these questions in our next digital “Go to China” Meet-up on Zoom.
