On My Mind…
A small list of big ideas currently making waves in my brain.
“The art of steering.” Action-oriented systems design thinking and theory for understanding and architecting influence, impact and interaction across human, organizational, and technological ecosystems.
The way people consume entertainment is constantly in flux, so the laws must adapt quickly. Harris Ingram strives to anticipate these changes so you can focus more on creating the performance of a lifetime.
Automation is coming but many designers lack a true working knowledge of the programming and thinking behind automated algorithms, workflows and intelligent efficiency. Tools like AppleScript, Automator, Shortcuts and others provide simple ways to automate faster, more accurate design processes.
Cryptocurrency has had a rollercoaster of a ride but blockchain isn’t going anywhere. From understanding the nature of trustful systems to creating new transparency and self-executing contracts - blockchain is a key building block in the future of business.
A.I. & Machine Learning
The age of intelligence is here. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are quickly democratizing the ability to scale, personalize and automate work that once required teams of people to manage. Intelligence will be in everything and we need to deeply understand its design to ensure a positive future for everyone.
Systems underly everything in the world around us yet a grasp of basic systems thinking methodologies, philosophies and principles is broadly lacking even in the UX/Product design community. I am working to develop a deeper systems vocabulary spanning beyond user-centric interactions to include mechanic, organizational, social, chemical and cognitive systems.
