Future Lab: Genevieve Bell of IXR
When Intel Labs established its Interactions and Experience Research Lab, known as IXR, this past summer, it was a sign that the making of technology has profoundly changed. It is one thing to invent a machine or a process, it is another to make one that people want to use. And to do that, one must understand how people live their lives and what place technology occupies. This is the goal of the IXR lab. In this podcast we meet anthropologist Genevieve Bell, who heads up IXR as well as Principal Engineer Horst Haussecker who oversees technology for the lab.
