How Interactive Prototypes are Replacing Documentation

For design studios, creating a prototype as a final deliverable allows for greater interaction with the product and a deeper-level understanding of how the product is experienced. It can also easily be adopted for usability testing and iterated on quickly and efficiently to push out new versions. Prototyping is also an impactful way to present to your client. People know how to interact with products. Demonstrating interactions with a prototype helps to spark well-informed discussions with clients and can lead to better design more quickly.

Across Systems Launches Translators' Advisory Board

Across Systems GmbH (computer-aided translation (CAT) tools) has launched the Translators’ Advisory Board. The purpose of the Advisory Board is to cooperate with experienced CAT tool users to better understand challenges that translators face on a daily basis and discuss possible solutions. 

EMF - the Forum of e-Excellence's insight:

Language tech suppliers such as Across Systems should all invest in some kind of data analytics to find out what their various customers think, how their technology is used and when and where it is best implemented. Maybe someone in Europe could develop a tool to achieve this quickly and intelligently.

Automated Copywriting Startup Persado Raises $21M

Persado, (US startup)can automatically create and test different marketing emails and other promotional material. It has raised $21 million in Series B funding. The automated approach allows marketers to try out many more versions of a message than they’d get with regular A/B testing (where human copywriters still generate the messages themselves). And since the technology has “no preconceived notion” of what the right approach is, it will create variants that a human might never even think of.

Modelling, not Coding, is the New Literacy

Modeling is creating a representation of a system (or process) that can be explored or used. This definition encompasses a few skills, but the most important one is specification.

Smart Keyboard Could Provide a New Layer of Security

By analyzing such parameters as the force applied by key presses and the time interval between them, a new self-powered non-mechanical intelligent keyboard could provide a stronger layer of security for computer users. The intelligent keyboard records each letter touched, but also captures information about the amount of force applied to the key and the length of time between one keystroke and the next. Such typing style is unique to individuals, and so could provide a new biometric for securing computers from unauthorized use
EMF - the Forum of e-Excellence's insight:

Not so useful if we all switch to smartphones or speech interfaces.

The Qwerky gesture-based keyboard alternative iOS keyboard app (from a U.K.-based dev team), makes emojis easy to integrate into typing habits. The numbers and punctuation screen is also positioned a Tinderish gesture away, instead of requiring the typist to precision-tap a corner key to toggle between keyboards every time they want to add in an apostrophe or punctuate their missive with a smiling poop — as is the case on the native iOS keyboard.
