I'm on my way home from 2 conferences, #AOW2019 and @AutomotiveUI #AutoUI2019. There was one thing common to both conferences, namely both confs. had only female keynote speakers. e.g., @NilliLavie, @doc_ux, @NatashaMerat, @Sharonkparker, @dechurch.

Was this necessary?

#imho, Absolutely!
I observed young female students crowding the keynote speakers on several occasions, asking questions & deep in discussion. The enthusiasm was palpable.

Do we need this?

Take a closer look during Q&As.
Are the men or women more outspoken?

What are the #HumanFactors challenges of #AutomatedVehicles? Looking forward to hearing @NatashaMerat's keynote at #AOW2019. Will automated transport add to our daily struggles of 'getting things done' or lighten it? How will it transform societies?

I was humbled in our "Embodied Vehicle" @AutomotiveUI workshop today. When we proposed it, we were thinking of discussing:
1) symbiosis between vehicle & driver
2) communicate telematics data to human senses
3) respond to driver's intent from physio data
4) and more...

1/6 That was, until we asked the participants to complete the sentence. "The Embodied Vehicle is...".

A participant stated matter-of-fact,"The Embodied Vehicle is one that is currently designed for male bodies." 2/6
