My lightening talk from the Zurich Frontend 2012 conference. Basically I want to take the optimization techniques I know from mechanical engineering and apply them to user experience and interaction design. Why do we still design user interfaces when they could just be optimized for different user groups and types. Our devices should know us and scale the user interface design directly to us and our user needs.
