Mass democratisation and access to AB test tooling has meant that hundreds of millions of experiments have been run on people, via digital products and services. Although we are not running pharmaceutical trials and tests, these experiments still raise numerous ethical issues that are shared with research or experiments in a medical scenarios.
Craig Sullivan joins us to explore the topic. Craig has been experimenting and optimising websites and digital services for decades and has been regular guest on UXPodcast since the start.
In the second part of our 10th anniversary interview with Don Norman, we discuss externalities, the environmental aspects of design, ethics, systems and changing design education.
We all have cognitive biases, flaws in our reasoning and judgement due to our personal beliefs and hidden pattens that we’ve subconsciously adopted over time. David Dylan Thomas joins us to discuss cognitive bias and how we can design for it and work with it.
Kim Goodwin, three-time guest on UX Podcast and a person we have huge amounts of respect for joins us at From Business To Buttons to talk about decision systems – Design systems are often a good investment, but do they give the highest rate of return? No says Kim, changing how we make decisions gives more.

Zoe Rose joins us to talk about accreditation within the design industry.
