Research Project

This is a research project which explores how technological trends, such as autonomy and artificial intelligence, will influence common human interactions such as a Friday night. Over the last century, Friday night has represented a time to relax and enjoy the company of others. Technology has played an influential role in shaping the social channels used, in this social event over the years. This research explores the next potential shift in "social channels based on today’s emerging technology.

Genie is the product of the research, a technology which transcends today’s communication devices to create a new frontier of digital assistance. Genie is a self-aware platform capable of learning and exists on an adaptive "user interface" which changes the medium by which it communicates, based on the environment and context. Genie is truly the evolution of the mobile device and the operating system.
