What is speculative design?
With the development of science and technology, we have been constantly thinking and exploring the future, using conceptual design to realize the vision of the future, and constantly looking forward to the future way of life. Speculative design focuses on the future, the possibility rather than the reality. Imagination can be active and illusory, but extrapolations about the future must stand close scrutiny, not just subjective speculation.

What the product will look like 50 years from now

In my opinion, after 50 years, artificial intelligence will replace people to complete many programmed and logical jobs. Even news reports can be completed by writing robots. In this way, the reports of natural disasters and wars no longer need human beings to complete. This method reduces the incidence of human casualties and improves the efficiency of news reporting.

During 1 week’s time, I tried to practice photoshop with English version. Before that time, I always use the Chinese version, but last week I attend the onlinestudio to see the use of Adobe illustrate, since the English version I can’t understand some skills. After this class I turned all of the Adobe softwares to English version. I can recognize some tools by seeing some icons. With the one week practice of using the English version, I hope I could understand the content of the course.
