Mission Critical Design

For most of us, no one will die if a design has a pixel out of place or the wrong copy. Even if there are usability flaws in the final product, it's usually not a matter of life and death and it can often be fixed in a later release. But what if you worked on things that actually mattered in protecting human life? Could you design as if peoples lives depended on it? LA UX Meetup and IxDA Los Angeles are honored to welcome Mikkel Michelsen visiting from Denmark to present his insights into the exciting world of mission critical interaction design, where safety, security and protecting human life enters the realm of digital technology and user experience design. Mikkel Michelsen is an interaction designer with 14 years of experience, out of which a substantial part has been the design of specialized interactions for healthcare, defence and industrial applications. He currently works at www.systematic.com.
The USC Information Technology Program will be hosting the event and will sharing some of their goals in rolling out their new user experience courses. The Information Technology Program at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering is a campus leader in technology education and Innovation. They teach cutting edge courses in the areas web development, cyber security, video games, 3D animation, social media, mobile development and enterprise wide information systems to the entire USC student body. They introduce students to new ideas, theories and methodologies and help them realize their ideas in a state of the art lab environment. They are the bridge between theory and practice.
