Behold: The Simplified UI Rapid Development Kit

Editor’s note: The recent release of the Oracle Applications Cloud Simplified User Interface Rapid Development Kit represents the culmination of a lot of hard work from a lot of people. The kit was built, in large part, by Friend of the ‘Lab, Rafa Belloni (@rafabelloni), and although I tried to get him to write up some firsthand commentary on the ADF-fu he did to build the kit, he politely declined. 

We’re developers (more...)

Context in UX – What it is, what it isn’t, and why it’s important

Our location is relentlessly tracked by our mobile devices. Our online transactions – both business and social – are recorded and stored in the cloud. And reams of biometric data will soon be collected by wearables.  Mining this contextual data offers a significant opportunity to enhance the state of human computer interaction. But this begs the question: what exactly is ‘context’ ?

Personal Assistant or Creepy Stalker? The Rise of the Cognitive Computing

I just got back to my hotel room after attending the first of a two day Cognitive Computing Forum, a conference running in parallel to the Semantic Technology (SemTech) Business Conference and the NoSQL Conference here in San Jose. Although the forum attracts less attendees and has only a single track, I cannot remember attending a symposium where so many stimulating ideas and projects were presented.

What is cognitive computing? It refers to computational systems that (more...)

More First World Problems

I’ve been traveling a lot lately, which is bad. I’ve been consuming a lot of in-flight wifi, which is good, because there really should be no place on Earth where I’m unable to work.

Plus, it’s internets at 35,000 feet. How cool is that?

Today, I found myself in the throes of a decidedly first world problem. Of the many devices I carry, I couldn’t decide which one to use for the airplane wifi, which is, (more...)

One of the best aspects of working in the emerging technologies team here in Oracle’s UX Apps group is that we have the opportunity to ‘play’ with new technology. This isn’t just idle dawdling, but rather play with a (more...)

Fashion and Wearable Tech: We Don’t All Wear Overalls in Work

Big problem with wearable tech: It’s not particularly wearable.

Part of this failing is a clear lack of any fashion or sense of style evident in the current crop of wearable tech offered to the consumer. What chance then would using wearable tech for work have?

To use an analogy it seems as if wearable tech makers might think we all wear Star Trek uniforms or overalls to work and rely solely used character-based green-screen (more...)
