How to create apps/guidelines for creating apps

what to think of when designing wearables:

1. Design for glanceability. watches are made to look at for a quick glance and look away which means when creating one it has to be easy to turn on and look at it.

2. Design for context. Knowing what needs to be on the watches is extremely important. it is important to have sensors that detect movements. also, carefully understand what the wearer will need the watch for.

3. Design lightweight interactions. Interactions should be as short as possible and knowing what's essential for a user to complete a task.

4. Keep it simple. Wearables are made for shortcuts that take less times than smartphones would take. Don't put more actions or information than the user needs otherwise it will disrupt the experience.

5. Design a clear minimalistic interface. Create enough space between elements since there is such a small space on the screen.

6. Minimize interruption

7. Opt for more privacy. Be aware of which way the device is facing and display content according. Inward allows for more personal content to be displayed, outward should default to a black screen.

8. Interaction with other devices

How are Algorithms Used in The World/Technology

Designing an AI system

1. identify the problem. The first thing you have to do is to make sure you have a problem that you are trying to solve. This is what will guide you through the rest of your journey.

2. Prepare the data. When finding data it should be divided into 2 groups. Saturated data is a rigid format to ensure consistency in processing and also ease of analytics. Unsaturated data is everything that saturated data isn't. This data is not in a uniform pattern which includes audio, pictures, imagery and words.

3. Choose the algorithm. It is important to have a plan as to where you are going with the system since everyone works differently. You have to choose the algorithm that is best for you.

4. Supervise learning

5. Train the algorithms

6. selected platforms. Choose a platform that provides all the services that you need instead of creating your own.

Algorithms are used in everything these days and provide a faster and more efficient way to get things done.
