Speaking at WIRED Health in London, Intel’s Lama Nachman has revealed that Stephen Hawking’s speech system will be available as open-source platform for the research community. During the speech, she also gave some interesting detail on the redesign process behind the work the team has done – from user experience research to interaction design.
” The app allows people to explore the current NO2 level from places via an existing habitual behaviour, taking photos.The appearance of photos are adjusted based on the air quality data on top, which translates the analytical number representing the severity of pollution to a visible form. The app provides a side-by-side comparison view by applying photo filters, which allows people to discover the spatial and temporal variations in air quality.”
