Experts can be very helpful during initial design efforts for a product, sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with a development team to guide their understanding of user requirements. After all, they understand everything in the domain so well and know a ton of skills, some of which they can perform without breaking a sweat. But what if we told you that expert influence on early design decisions can also introduce biases if not adequately checked?[Read More]

Biometrics can be a valuable addition to most research protocols, providing support for effects observed in both performance-based and self-reported data. Such metrics are unique because they provide insight into the autonomic biological processes of a user, often reflecting an implicit change to their cognitive state. Although this insight is often valuable, planning for any physiologically-based research protocol should include careful consideration of both the research plan and interpretation of data. The question is: What to consider when designing a biometric study?[Read More]
