Change isn't going to appeal to everyone, but it's still inevitable. Here are four technology trends that will define 2017.
1. Collective Intelligence
2. Everyday AI
3. AR/VR and mixed reality
4. Consumerized designs and digital technology platforms
In its State of UX in 2017 report, the uxdesign.cc team commented that phrases like "intuitive" and "human-centered" are disappearing from developers' and designers' vocabularies. But I would argue that those UX traits aren't disappearing; they've become requirements rather than perks. Saying that a product is "intuitive" shouldn't be necessary because that should be a given property of its functionality. If a user can't intuitively utilize a particular function, it becomes irrelevant.
