Voice Design designing for bigger than myself.
I would like to use my time to close the year with a message to the collective in designing for bigger than you. This article is my manifesto to my design principles that I layout out previously to conclude in the call I had about designing for bigger than me. I would like to close the year by making my mark in the design community for designing bigger than myself.
What are the boundaries to push for the human race to move forwards?
What are the innovations made in this tech boom everyone is missing on?
Why designing for voice is bigger than me?
I would like to use this article to raise more deep questions about the commitment of love and fury I took with Johnny Ives that re learned me how to be a designer. I polymaths, an accomplished person that. I didn't write for a month because I wanted to close the year with deeply rooted questions to answer.
I wanted to finish the year strong with the dedication and commitment I made to myself to use my life to design excellent products and experiences that will be pushing the human race forward along with myself. This is about voice, but not only do I want to use my voice to set the examples for the collective to do work that matters.
This year I encounter Johnny Ives and he put words on the irrationality of my entire life with design and all of the fights I had to have for years to become and what I now learn how to live in symbiosis with. It is the commitment of love and fury that Johny Ives after 30 years at Apple decided to make. It is all about the passions and this is my love letter to the design collective the example I am setting now as well.
First of all, How do you push the human race forward through voice design or other products?
There is a principle I would like to share beyond a how-to is a why. We can debate endlessly about the smart assistant industry projected to be 1.6 trillion dollars in the IoT ram within the next five years. However, the goal of each piece of innovation in the craft Is to intentionally devote yourself to integrity and excellence to push the human race forward. How do ultimately push the human race forward? It is a necessary question to answer if anyone would want to move forward with AI or AI design. How do we push the boundaries of what is possible for the human race?
There is a lot to do in terms of innovation with voice design that is in the ram of what is in reach.
Voice design is the process of planning out and mapping all of the possible interactions that may occur between the voice and the end user. The goal of voice design is to create a great conversational flow that makes interactions.
Voice design is 99 % invisible intervales that are also known as VUI and there can be so many more innovations with the visual that follow the voice.
I think that true magic happens when it goes beyond human understanding and it is possible to do it within this ram.
I would like to articulate before doing to the community on my research of what is possible for AI design. Even, if some copy it will never be the same and it is not important in the knowledge I deeply know about it. I would like to submit the research that the boundaries can be pushed through the use of translucency.
I firmly believe that if you want to create something new you need to articulate it and announce it to the collective in order to put that thread already in place. Apple translucency patent Number 20040090467 was the first design created with a distinct functional layer to help incorporate hierarchy and order. The use of translucency give you a sense of context and motion that creates a sense of depth and vitality. It creates a sense of elevated design that incorporates this intuition that everyone is on the lookout for.
It is possible to create AI design that would articulate in motion with the translucent interface. It is possible to give visibility in the image to the words we speak and would completely reinvent the relationship humans can have with their conversation.
I write this as a manifesto to the possibility of re-imagine the interactions we have with speech and how we can visualize our speech and create a real bond between a machine and the user. This is an unknown pioneering territory where I would like as well to spend my energy in and could, can, should push humanity forward.
Second of all, What are the innovations made in this tech boom everyone is missing on?
In order to start doing innovations you also have to know what are the true real innovations being made.
We have to start defining what an innovation as well is because it is an overused term that is often and truly often misused.
I would like to start with a few criteria that are abstract to see the territories of innovations. When you choose AI design, you have to be conscious of that we are giving commerce and selling a new dimension and that we are walking for Brands into territories that are purely unknown. When I see my previous work I know I am true and real and pure because I did all of my steps without no one teaching me I just knew it. Those are pure signs of what you are made for and I wish one thing I wish I knew better to put more thought process into what I was doing. AI design is a pioneering field where there is the opportunity for brands and commerce to rethink totally about their experience. It was never done before and there is so much room for explorations.
When designing or building for this field it sounds wise to me to keep at heart those specific points.
1- Voice is emotional and makes you feel a strong immersion.
This is can come in really handy because all of the attributes of commerce is done with high emotional purity, integrity, and care. I join completely Johnny Ives when he said that his life was dedicated to excellence, purity, integrity, and giving a damn. Nothing great is achieved for me without a deep true dedicated care in everything I do.
2- Hand-free is also a new model on how to move into space with your commerce that has never been explored before. We have an understanding of a tool and that this tool has to be articulated by our hands but for the first time in the history of humanity, our tool becomes your speech. There is such vitality and nothing else that can make you feel more powerful and human than the capacity to articulate a cohesive coherent speech. This is the reason why as well I am writing this manifesto there is a deep vitality in choosing a purely human attribute and pushing the boundaries of the possibility for the human race.
Web browsing is becoming right now voice. In 2020 30% of the search were made without a screen just by the simple power of speech.
Yet again I would like to shine a light on all of the unexplored opportunities there are in order to start browsing things in a new way and completely re-invent what can be the browsing experience. There can be so many ways to browse interaction between the voice and the visuals.
3- Data is the difference in voice-activated product design.
The ability to grow a business increased dramatically with the voice-activated product it is possible to create an echo system that changes products. Businesses can increase dramatically with the voice-activated products it is possible to create an ecosystem that changes products.
If we succeed to get noise cancelation out of the door which is being made right now we will be able to allow businesses to drive more traffic.
There is something fascinating to this in the sense that it will change the behavior of the people in general and how they interact with things and after all what is more natural than speech. We learn the speech before we learn how to utilize and articulate our fingers and this is such a massive leap in humanity. I want to spread the light on that specific point because it is yet not enough realized by the community.
4- With voice comes as well a personalization of voice-activated product like never before. I respect tremendously the community and read each one of you. However, I want to transmit the passion and true care that my fields and courts where I stand deserve. I learned this on my own but Johnny Ives who gave me the biggest slap in my face confirmed it for me. People really do care if they are given the choice and it is proved that the consumers who received spend more. There is a total reinvention and pioneering frontier that brands can have with their businesses. The way you can as well narrate a story that will no longer belongs to you but to the collective of consumer with it.
There is much to accomplish and those points are as well an echo to the first point witch is to push the bounderies of the human race forward. In order to create something completely new we need to totally disconned from the past and it is possible, durable and required in those design and technology courts.
My last point is the emphasis on designing for voice to design something bigger than me.
I chose this path because at an early age I just knew but it wasn't given to me it is so vast that you have to keep looking for this specific thing that will give you the right evolutions the right path. I am completely self-made and no one chose what my life is going to be I chose my life for myself and there is an urgency to let me work and write manifestos to speak for myself towards the goals I want to achieve.
I figure it out that if you want to be big you eventually always have to design and find, seek that thing that will make you design for bigger than myself. I am extremely dedicated to my plans and Johnny Ives reconfirmed this for myself to do things with passion, integrity, and pure deep vital care for what you do in everything you do. It is all about the passions.
I am writing this piece of manifesto for myself as well as the collective to commit to pushing the boundaries of the human race forward. For that, the first step would be to start researching which markets and hearts are there to be won.
I am writing this manifesto for AI design but not only just know-how or a piece of information but as well a reason why we should be doing the things we are doing. There is nothing more powerful than taking a stand in things that we want to do. I read each of you and I will continue to but too few explain why they write the things that they write and we need a sense of pure depth and vitality into what we do in order to make it successful because it is just the nature of our business. What else if not innovations for the world and the human race after all.
It is imperative to choose to take a stand for bigger than myself in everything I do. In the midst of the trillions of frames, I must have done for myself over all of those years of pure massive hard work there is one thing is that it has to be bigger than the frames everything is contained in. It is an experience I have to transmit and care to pass on to the next that is going to use it.
Beauty is a fierce and yet extremely important attribute and designing beauty in the midst of the invisible has been one of my proudest achievements as much as making the invisible visible. I want to finish the year 2021 for my collective to bloom into their power and understand that It is way bigger than we think and leave with a note of hope for the innovations and way we are right now paving for what is next in my courts. Thank you so much I hope you will go design with another mind today after this article and I stand by Johnny Ives Love and fury to you all.
