I am starting an experiment:

I stop using facebook and google when researching, reading news, shopping, etc. I even try promoting our new family business without the big tech... let’s see if I manage and how it changes my world view

Big Tech and Privacy

It’s great to finally see the safety campaign by a big tech company @google on the streets and in the tube. Facebook should have been the initiator of these campaigns 10 years ago.

#DeleteFacebook

Just heard Elon Musk deleted @Tesla from facebook. I never liked @facebook - I always had bad gut feelings about its closed environment, the dodgy privacy settings and ugly interface. I deleted my studio’s page back in 2010 or 2011 and never looked back.

What I regret though – I applied for a contract product design role at Facebook

Fintech and Artificial Intelligence

Personalising content and showing a customised user journey and interface is becoming increasingly important to reduce user’s frustration and drop off rate.

I was focusing on designing with the help of machine learning, emotion sensors and analysis of facial expressions. I was looking at how AI can aid in avoiding regulatory risks: for example accidental tapping.

Corporate Greed

Though image based age recognition algorithm is available for Instagram and Facebook, millions of kids under 13 are granted access illegally.
