The importance of giving your user multiple visual signals

We call it interface design for a reason. The transmission of light through the display, sound through the speakers, haptics through a vibration motor… these are the only methods we have for passing information from the hardware of the machine into the wetware of the human brain.

We’re hacking animal senses, honed through eons of natural selection to survive the natural environment, to bridge digital and biological computers.

Simply focusing on visual signals, we have shape, color, line, and motion (change over time) to encode our information. These are the same attributes that art has relied on since the beginning of anything resembling art.

The 3 most effective ways to build trust as a leader

How do you build trust as a leader? The answer seems intuitive enough.

For many of us, we hold company off-sites and run team-building activities. Informal lunches, monthly social get-togethers, and one-on-one meetings are part of how we build trust at work.

We also thank our team publicly and give employee recognition for a job well done. And, we strive to be transparent with company information during all-team meetings.

These are among the most popular ways to build trust because they work… Right?

How to Build Technology that Feels Like a Friend

Recently, I needed to book a lunch meeting. To help coordinate, I asked Amy to assist and cc’d her on the email. “Amy,” I wrote, “please help us find a time to meet. Let’s plan for sushi at Tokyo Express on Spear Street.” Amy looked at my calendar, found an open time suitable for everyone invited, and booked the meeting.

Amy works just like a human assistant, except she’s not human. It’s an AI bot made by X.ai, a company specializing in scheduling assistants that respond to natural language. Amy is so good at what she does that I find myself thanking her for booking a meeting, forgetting she needs no more thanks than my microwave.

It’s easy to forget Amy, an artificial intelligence bot made by X.ai, isn’t human. Image source: x.ai
