Li, Andol X and Bonner, John V.H. (2011) Designing intelligent domestic applications using wizard of oz methodology. In: The 7th international conference on intelligent environments, 26-28, July, 2011, Nottingham,UK.

In this paper we consider how ‘smartness’ should be designed to enhance the communication in the home. We aim to evoke a rethinking of how
smart technologies should be embedded in perspectives of user needs. Through a
set of experimental studies, which employ a Wizard of Oz (WoZ) as design and
evaluation methodology, we observe and analyse user interactions accordingly
with the wizard’s simulations. Based on experiment results, our argument is,
designing smartness for communication in the home should not heavily rely on
invisibly distributed sensors and networks due to interaction design
misunderstandings that a large number of sensors and networks can make ambient
intelligence with few user understandings. The results also argue that, smartness
can be realised by first improving the integration of personal information into the
environments, which is closely relevant to social routines.
