Grounding the Innovation of Future Technologies

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Grounding the Innovation of Future Technologies
I'm not sure this is true: "innovation, development, and evaluation of design ideas cannot be based only on the designer's intuitions but must be grounded in users' actual needs and behaviors. We need to apply social and psychological sciences to understand how technology could qualify a positive change for the users."

Accounting for the university of the future (AUR 61 01)
