gAIa is a speculative, critical design piece that challenges our understanding of user data, privacy, and the rise of ubiquitous technology.​​​​​​​
Context, Background + Inspiration
gAIa challenges our understanding of user data, privacy, and the rise of ubiquitous technology. It envisions a future where advertising seamlessly integrates into our lives, blurring the lines between reality and ads. By tracking user data, gAIa highlights the dangers of technologies that monitor and monetize our every action.
Context, Background + Inspiration 
In an imagined future where everything is connected and personalized, gAIa explores a reality where advertising becomes indistinguishable from daily life. The project warns of the consequences of a future where every move is monitored and monetized. As we enter an era of hyper-personalization and adaptive technology, gAIa raises crucial questions about designing for a world where privacy, agency, and ethics are paramount.
Interface Screens:
Here is an excerpt from gAIa's founder, the woman behind a new era in ai consciousness.
gAIa's founder, a woman at the forefront of AI consciousness, describes the project's features. This includes digital components like comprehensive online tracking and physical components like biometric monitoring and real-time ad display. Users can manipulate a target's environment, making informed decisions based on live data streams without the target's knowledge.

Design Impact and Measurable Outcomes
User Engagement Metrics: Analyzed user engagement metrics to gauge the effectiveness of gAIa in capturing and retaining user attention.
Data Interaction Analysis: Examined how users interacted with the interface, including the frequency and duration of interactions.
Real-time Ad Display Success: Measured the success of real-time ad displays based on user responses and interactions.
Ethical Considerations Framework: Developed and applied an ethical considerations framework to evaluate the project's impact on user privacy and agency.
Project Reflection 
gAIa stands out as a favorite project within my portfolio. It delves into the complexities of technical landscapes, exploring speculative futures, critical design, human psychology, and social behavior. The project represents an accomplishment in envisioning the potential dangers of emerging technology and emphasizes the vital role of research in understanding and addressing these implications. This journey involved extensive research, conceptualization, and iteration, fostering conversations, collaborative work, and a mindset shift in how I view, analyze, and use technology. It challenges viewers to critically examine the impact of emerging technologies and encourages conversations about creating a more ethical future.
