A Humanized Technology example
Alias is a self-learning ‘parasite’ designed by Bjørn Karmann and Tore Knudsen to give users more control over their smart assistants such as Google Home and Alexa. You put it on the speaker and give it a name. Once Alias knows his name, Alias can take control of your Smart Assistant by activating it for you.
Alias wants to redefine our relationship with smart home technologies, giving us more control over our own data. That’s why it’s a good example of Humanized Tech.
