Intelligent Guides: Architecting Systems for Context-driven Interactions

Friday, March 24 11:15 am – 12:00 pm

Back to All IA Summit 2017 Sessions

Session Summary

Imagine an information system that can support pathways driven entirely by current context. Pathways that are directed by human actors, determined by the arrangement of data and the relationships between objects, and dynamically created at the moment of interaction. A system that creates meaning through the application of acquired knowledge. An intelligent guide.

How might we architect systems that supports this free-roaming? How do we think about transient information architectures and containers for experiences that are only defined in the moment?

Considering informations systems and theory, the worlds we create, inhabit and navigate, and a case study looking at commercial application, this session will explore our interactions within those systems, how we manage transience through data and information architectures and how we might effectively design those systems – to create experiences based on the relationship between context and content.
