Abstract
Contemporary interaction design reaches beyond the one-user-one-product paradigm; we are frequently designing products as parts of local systems that might even communicate with remote services or participate in the Internet of Things (IoT). In doing so, designers have to deal with data in daily practice. They create emergent functionality and aesthetics, and even imbue moderate intelligence. This talk aims at showing new approaches that designers can use to connect their concepts to data streams and leverage synthetic data to sketch, prototype and validate designed concepts with contextual approximations. We will elaborate on the necessary design tools and engineering thoughts as needed by the complex products and systems of the now.
