The Perception of Color in Architecture – TMD STUDIO – Medium
Color is an integral element of our world, not just in the natural environment but also in the man-made architectural environment. Color always played a role in the human evolutionary process. The environment and its colors are perceived, and the brain processes and judges what it perceives on an objective and subjective basis. Psychological influence, communication, information, and effects on the psyche are aspects of our perceptual judgment processes. Hence, the goals of color design in an architectural space are not relegated to decoration alone.

Design is [Smart] – Jess Holbrook and Josh Lovejoy - YouTube
Machine learning will cause us to rethink, restructure, displace, and consider new possibilities for virtually every experience we build. In the Google UX community, we’ve started an effort called “human-centered machine learning” (HCML) to help focus and guide that conversation. During this talk, we’ll explain how we look across products at Google to see how ML can stay grounded in human needs while solving them in unique ways only possible through ML. Our goal is for every designer to understand core ML concepts, how to integrate ML into the UX utility belt, and ensure ML and AI are built in an inclusive way.
