About this Case Study

Human psychology, cognitive biases, empathy and emotion. Why are these phenomena important to understand when building products and services? Using examples from user research studies, this talk will highlight how empathetic design is of benefit to both the user and the business, how cognitive biases are a blocker to empathising with people, and how to set up research to overcome cognitive biases.
