The project has two-part. Part one is group work with two other designers and experts from the medical area, co-create a future vision of cancer care in 2030.
Part two is my personal exploration of how can design bring the new form of cancer care to people based on part one in 2030.

The Project Outline (Part One):

Part one of Future Experiences was speculating on what it could be like living beyond cancer in 2030.
Technological advancements could allow for intelligent health monitoring in the home. Using a set of smart tools – essentially intelligent crockery and cutlery – Dinaci, a healthcare brand of 2030, looks at biological and behavioural trends to build an image of the users normality. Negative trends in this data point towards health problems; in the beyond cancer context this is an image of risk of readmission.  The data gathered acts as part of a collective intelligence; informing the users healthcare on a local scale; in a wider context it informs global medical and cancer communities.

 

Part one outcome--Intelligent food healthcare 2030

The Project Outline (Part Two):

In part two, I worked individually, continue to speculate on how design can shape our society in the future through the relationships between people, products and places positively.
 
Working closely with cancer research experts, I notice remote healthcare might become a trend for post-cancer living in 2030. However, It largely depends on technology. So how to bring the new form of cancer care to people who have difficulty using tech becomes critical.
 
The outcome is Kiki, a platform that works as a companion for its users, interacting with and motivating the user through friendly suggestions and conversation. Each guidance incorporates local information and user's preference with cancer experts' advice globally, keep the users healthy without bringing the context of 'cancer'. The collective intelligence generated by Kiki helps to advance global understanding of the experience of those living with cancer as a chronic condition.
