2019 UX Design Awards Winners Announced
After nominating an initial 51 projects from over 20 different countries to participate in the 2019 UX Design Awards competition, the panel of esteemed judges has announced this year’s winners. The judges reached their final list of 10 winners—one Gold Award, six Product Awards, and three Concept Awards—after two full days of thorough testing and intensive deliberations.
“The UX Design Awards honor innovative solutions that add value to applications, technologies and services through positive experiences, and this year’s laureates are excellent examples for this,” Ake Rudolf, Project Director of the Awards, said in a statement. “Intuitive solutions such as these strengthen people’s abilities, enable novel applications and facilitate access to new fields of knowledge.”
The Gold Award was bestowed upon Intuity Media Lab for their minimic intelligent microscope. With integrated AI, the product is able to learn from human experts and analyze samples independently. From there, it can diagnose infectious diseases that potentially threaten the lives of millions of people around the world. Beyond the actual implementation of the technology itself, the panel of judges called out the fact that the algorithm used in minimic is open sourced and can be used for further development by the professional community as a “positive example for how technology and creativity can be integrated in positive ways.”
