Search Patterns: The Future of Discovery

Day 1

Search is among the most disruptive innovations of our time. It influences what we buy and where we go. It shapes how we learn and what we believe. It’s also a radically multidisciplinary, creative challenge.

In this talk, Peter Morville defines a pattern language for search and discovery that embraces user psychology and behavior, cross-channel information architecture, multisensory interaction, and emerging technology. He identifies design principles that apply across the categories of web, e-commerce, enterprise, desktop, mobile, social, and realtime. And, he explains how futures methods and user experience deliverables can help us to create better search interfaces and applications today, and invent the improbable discovery tools of tomorrow.
